On Monday and Tuesday we participated in an annual event that benefits AIDS Services Austin called Dining for Life. Incredibly simple in concept, restaurants agree to donate a portion of their sales to ASA on Monday and/or Tuesday at lunch and/or dinner. People dine out at these restaurants to support the cause. Monday we returned to our old neighborhood to go to Fonda San Miguel. I snapped this picture of a log planter and some of their distinctive exterior tile. We had a great meal with some specials that included oysters, mussels and a watermelon-based salad. A flashy guest bartender from Spain out-did Tom Cruise, slinging one of the best Manhattans I've ever had.
