Time for a Choco Taco over here in Rocko

Well, I don’t know about you all, but I had a lovely weekend. Thank you campfires, live music, Rockland Breakwater, friends, a 5k, and then a much needed hot tub the next day, ha. Lots of fun. This wonderful weekend was brought to me by Allagash White.

Ahh, it’s so nice to have the warm weather, restaurants opening back up for the season, dining outside on restaurant patios — and Easter is right around the corner. I didn’t paint any eggs, but I did find some chocolate this weekend. That chocolate bunny didn’t stand a chance. Speaking of chocolate, yay for Bixby!! Maybe we should all celebrate with chocolate martinis this week. Yep, that sounds legit. And with all the taco specials & Sunfire’s 10 Year Anni, I just naturally jumped to Choco Tacos. Maybe I should get some sleep 🙂 Well, alright, here’s what’s up this week –
