Celebrated my pop’s birthday at Bakersfield down on Mass Ave. A funky bar and taco place, it’s a super fun place to eat and just be.
They started out with guac and two types of salsa. They also gave squirt bottles for the salsa in case you ran out or just wanted to deposit the salsa directly onto the chip. INNOVATIVE.
We sat in the patio, which was really cute. It made the meal that much better to have a light breeze and some sunshine.
I ordered a pulled pork sandwich with cheese (what kind? who knows) and arugula (or ROCKET as they call it in Europe. So fun). The salsa on the side added a fun kick to an already good sandwich. Most everyone else ordered tacos, which were GORGEOUS.
Leave it to my dad to have one of the coolest 50th birthday lunches. I am so lucky to have a Pop as funny, cool, and genuine as mine.
Happy birthday, Papa!
