February 19/19 – Winterlude Part 15 – Canmore – the Night Time is the Right Time

Despite the fact we were in a fully equipped apartment, we did have a few favourite local restaurants that we wanted to eat at. In order to get exercise and not have to choose a designated driver, we always try to walk to them.

On this night, we opted to go to one of our favourite Mexican restaurants, Cafe Aroma. In the winter months, they only open for dinner and for weekend brunch. To be fair, we were all dragging our butts on the way downtown this day. Not sure if the hiking and the altitude took a toll on us or if we were just tired.

We arrived shortly after their 5 PM opening time and were soon seated in colourful surroundings, eagerly awaiting our appies and bevvies. We saw a coat rack of sombreros and serapes and wondered what that was for. We did not have long to wait to find out.

The “apperitivo for sharing” included hot bean and feta, guacamole and pico de gallo dips with in house made tortilla chips (too few, but house made, nonetheless). Cervezas and Margaritas completed our opening salvo, while we waited for the mains.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience and L & L opted to treat us to the meal, as a thank you. Muchos Gracias to you guys, too.

Refreshed, we shrugged our coats back on and headed out for the walk home. The streets were now dark and we took time to appreciate the festive lighting on the streets and buildings, as we walked. Strangely, we did not feel nearly as tired as on our inbound walk.

On arriving home at the Lodge, we all collapsed either into bed or into comfy chairs. It had been a great day.

    1. I have not, but my friend told me it was good. The brew pub TANK 310 rates better and I have eaten there. Great pizzas and good craft beer, brewed on the premises. I do like the Mexican restaurant Aroma, but it has slipped lately. Fingers crossed that all this COVID stuff is done by then, so you can enjoy your reunion. Stay well Bernie. Allan
