Margarita from Fuego at Hotel Maya in Long Beach California

In honor of my 21st straight day in a row of blogging again since my 29th birthday, I thought it fitting to post a drinking photo. I would have posted gambling, but sadly I don’t have any… yet!

This delicious margarita was courtesy of Hotel Maya’s Fuego in Long Beach, CA. On a press trip for OCMETRO we got to experience the hotel, the view and the menu … for the low low low price of free. Gotta love the ring to that, ‘free’. So maybe not entirely free, since we were technically working, but writing and shooting photos for something you actually get to experience is much easier then jotting down info from a press release or brochures. So, we indulged, and it was delicious. Along with this smooth margarita I had one of the best pieces of grilled salmon I’ve ever eaten. Kudos to the chef! If you ever find yourself in Downtown LB near the Historic Queen Mary, stop in to Fuego and order up this tasty flipper of the sea. And tell them ninethreestudio sent you. Granted, they’ll just look at you in sheer confusion, but the name drop would be nice.
