One of our favorite restaurants in Pasadena is Dona Rosa. It's a cantina. No major tables and chairs, just some small tables for two. The interior is interesting. it takes elements from old Mexico and new Mexico. Most of the food is mild enough for us gringo's, but if you want heat, they have salsa that take the skin off your tongue. The mild salsa is hot, and the hot salsa is radioactive. I've been taking pictures of it for at least eight years. They hang everywhere in the restaurant. They have provided me with many a free dinner, which for an old photographer is more important than having Jennifer Anniston ask you to shoot a center fold of her for Playboy.
This tile is a copy of many old Mexican tiles from centuries ago. I may ask Joan Rivers what the original's were like. I'm still waiting for Joan to tell me what Abraham Lincoln and Jesus were like.
I'm pretty sure that Joan's first Christmas WAS the first Christmas. Shakespeare cast her in the first production of "Taming of the shrew."
