It was pleasant sitting in the courtyard patio of Susanna’s Restaurant (Pueblo Plaza, 4356 Blvd. Benito Juarez) in Rosarito Beach listening to the pinging of the rock waterfall fountain. It was relaxing. Then the waiter came with our menus and I heard the telephone ring. It was the 1980s and they wanted their menu back. My Vans “Off the Wall” checkerboard slip-ons never looked so good.
