Those racks were completely filled when we came back by there. The clearing in the woods, Margaritaville, is a major Thursday night destination for area drinkers with a cycling problem. The Mineola Steakhouse offers six tacos and a pitcher of beer for $10 and the place is packed. But lots of people just do the shorter ride to Margaritaville where they consume their own food and beverage. There's also a public charcoal grill that is well-used. The video of the ride back, forthcoming soon, will give you an idea of the event's popularity. Meanwhile here's a pic of the start of our ride home:
I don't think it's about the tacos, which are, in truth, nothing special.
