More Bueno, Anyone?

I was driving home from Starbuck's where Kyle and I had a great time talking when I realized that I hadn't mentioned the big event of last week. It's not too long, so Austin J., keep reading.
Last Thursday, Marcus and I were at Taco Bueno (the one that we camped at back in August) ordering our lunch when our friend, Rosalinda, the general manager there, asked why we weren't at the new store. We asked her about it, and it turned out a new store was opening on Friday, and they were again giving away $500 Bueno Bucks to the first 10 customers! We were so giddy we couldn't even order! Well, we ordered, but couldn't eat. Rosalinda called the new store, and there was no one in line yet. We rushed over there, called Nathan, Max, and our wives, and ended up first in line. Nathan was so excited that he got out of his bubble bath (don't ask), and rushed up there. Max joined us shortly. So, we ended up numbers 1, 2, 3, and 7 (Max was a little later than us), and each received the $500 of Bueno bucks. It was a great thing because my last stash was down to $25.00. And, in the process, we met some new friends (David, Troy, and Charis). We played X-box, Trvial pursuit, more X-box, and slept in our tents in the 25 degree weather. Martindale brought Marcus a sleeping bag. Carter showed up with Trivial Pursuit Lord of The Rings ed. Kyle brought us a table, and power strip, and me a zero degree mummy bag. Austin Mc brought us a 32" TV. And our wives brought us cookies, clothing, tents, blankets, Xbox and games, and all the other stuff we didn't have time to pack! All in all, the Bueno Brigade had an outstanding time. We eagerly look forward to the next grand opening because all this free food makes life MORE BUENO!

You guys are just crazy. And you'll be glad to know, I didn't "skim" this one.

Talk with the management & convince them to open up a Taco Bueno in Plainview... I would love nothing more than $500 Bueno bucks...

Seriously dude, that means you are going to eat $1000 worth of Mexican Food in less than a year. Everybody clear the room.
