“I want a mojito.” —Federico García Lorca

Just a hell of a poet that guy was.

When you’ve got a date and there’s even a chance that date might be interested in talking with you over tuna tacos or a raspberry-cumin mojito or a few of both, your mind should now drift to this charming picket-fenced-yard-with-a-hammock-on-a-weekend kind of a place.

Which just about exhausts our ability to explain it in words. Let’s let the slideshow do the rest.
