Ides Like A Margarita

All this talk about March Madness has made us thirsty for margaritas… go figure. Like most Seattle restaurants, we’ve got basketball on at the bar and a serious thirst for springtime. But while we pine for our long lost friend, the sun, let’s indulge in a wee but of the history, March history…

In 44 BC, an oracle told Julius Caesar to “Beware of the Ides of March!” Caesar would have been wise to run for the border, take a Mexican vacation or at least lay low in a rustic hideaway like El Camino. I mean, a place like El Camino has everything you need: authentic Mexican food, cheap happy hour Margaritas, a cozy fire and romantic candlelight. If the oracle had told Caesar about this oasis in the heart of Fremont, the Ides may have taken on a different legacy, ending instead with Caesar purring “Et tu, mole?

And, of course, we all know what the Ides of March leads up to… that’s right, St. Patrick’s Day – The classiest of all holidays. If green beer isn’t your thing and you would prefer to avoid all (…okay, most) of the lushy louts and lasses that are out and about, swing on in to the finest Mexican Restaurant in Fremont for a greenish margarita and some tacos de carnitas or other delectable Latin delights, like chilaquiles or our flan tradicional. The Mexican flag almost looks Irish, right?

El Camino is located at 607 N 35th St, Seattle, WA 98103, just behind Triangle Spirits and next to the famous Rocket. That’s in Fremont proper (aka “the center of the universe”) so we’re really in the middle of everything, y’see. Come find us and try our traditional, house-made Mexican menu and hand-crafted margaritas.
