Yelp's So Ironic @ Paco's
Irony, or simply opposites, was the theme of the eve at Paco's International Smoked Cuisine on Tuesday, a commentary on the crafty smoked creations coming out of this terrific new Albuquerque kitchen. Costuming was a tough one but our Elites didn't disappoint, showing off their creative side with wild style and plenty of snarky wit. This party was held on a terrific patio, and we kicked the night off with an Ironic Icebreaker.
The scene was reserved and delightful, the evening was cool, and the eats satiated all. From the tasty smoked bacon ceasar bites to the watermelon tomato balsamic summer salad, the meats met their match, but then, how could you top the peanut butter pulled pork sammies? Great local brews and refreshers washed it all down.
The five-star reviews say a lot about the casual, relaxed ambiance here; new Elites met veterans, the company was contageous, and Paco himself made everyone comfortable with a tour of the smoker and some welcoming words. No one wanted to leave. Four lucky winners took home gift certificates!
