Bunch of Deadbeats

After taking our leave from the beautiful angel at Waipahi Cemetery we went for a long country drive and eventually ended up in Balclutha. Our favourite pizza outlet was shut so we went to Casafuego Eatery and Bar, a colourful establishment with a very friendly skeleton crew 🙂

Balclutha, Clutha District, New Zealand. 22 Nov 2020.

For dessert we shared the cheesecake … nutella cheesecake!

Very relaxing atmosphere, and service and food are always great.

  1. I love your colorful friends, Liz. They give the place a fun vibe without being overly scary. Your cheesecake brought me back memories of one late night last November in Paris when I had a Nutella and banana crepe from a vendor in the student district–I think that was the last time that I tasted Nutella.

    1. The lady who brought the food said they try different kinds of cheesecake but nutella is favourite and they do it every couple of weeks. Nutella and banana crepe – served nice and warm – yum. Sure I’ve had that somewhere ’cause I feel a taste memory … delicious combination!

    1. Love the brightness and colour. From a quick search on Day of the Dead I found: “Marigolds are the most recognizable flower associated with Dia de Muertos or Day of the Dead.” – and I like marigolds! The date for this ‘day’ appears to be 02 Nov so I’m not too far off 🙂

      1. They should develop a new musical holiday: Día de los mariachis muertos. I see that it’s only been open for two years, but if they’ve had this skeleton crew providing the ambient entertainment from the start, then experience tells me that the strings on their guitars will be pretty dead by now, too.
