Casa Bonita is a Mexican Restaurant in Denver, Colorado. Our hosts had already told us that the food over there was not all that great, but the ambience was something worth experiencing.
I am sure that all the guests to this place had themselves clicked in front of the fountain which was just at the entrance.
The place is colourfully decorated and the seating arrangements are at different levels.
Entertainment, especially for the kids was the order of the day (or rather night) with some one or the other jumping into this pool of water.
There was a small booth in which you could get yourself clicked with the full regalia for a small fee.
I found this girl making funny faces every time the cameraman said “ready”
There were musicians serenading and going around every table keeping the mood buoyant.
But the best that I liked was the caricatures done by Mr Chuck Morris.
He talked to his customers and made them feel at ease while he sketched them. Transforming from a simple pencil sketch to an almost live colourful portrait is an art that he has mastered. You can see the transformation in the three minute video.
I noticed that whenever he drew, his left hand always went under the board. Could be a habit from the time he started sketching. His rates too were reasonable.
I had half a mind to get myself drawn but when the restaurant closed for the day, I found that Chuck still had customers waiting in line. So I had to forgo my aspiration of “looking funny”
Maybe next time Chuck J
