The weather doesn’t know what it’s doing, everyone’s wearing one layer too many, the crabby security guard has been in a better mood — it’s that time of year! Time for my favorite holiday, Guacamole Thanksgiving.
The 2nd annual meeting of this international tradition took place on Sunday night at Salsa y Salsa in Chelsea. The main objective amongst this holiday’s four person following is to get together and eat guacamole, but it’s also about spending time and catching up.
Last year at our inaugural event we hauled our booty’s to Brooklyn way too early on a Sunday morning for a guac crawl sponsored by the Nachos NY group. (They’re a real thing! Seriously!) The crawl took us to four different spots where we did important things like start a Guacamole Thanksgiving hashtag, try micheladas for the first time, and of course stuff ourselves silly with what Nachos NY picked to be the best guac and chips (and margs). By the end, the avocados weren’t the only thing that were smashed, if you know what I mean. (Wink!) Also, we made the cover of the organization’s newsletter, but because I was the only one who liked how I look in the pic, I’ve been forbidden from posting it.
This year was more tame and less organized. Even though it wasn’t a Nachos NY sanctioned event, a lot was accomplished. Check out the pics below. We managed to eat and drink way less and get zero shots of the very food we were celebrating. Enjoy!

All in all, the night was purrrrfect.
