Casa Bonita

Every Wednesday night, Dan and I make a point of clearing our busy schedules to catch the newest episode of South Park. I’ve been watching the adventures of Cartman, Stan, Kyle and Kenny since I was in college and I absolutely love that this show has stood the test of time.

In a popular season 7 episode, Kyle announces that his parents are taking him and his friends to the popular Mexican themed restaurant, Casa Bonita to celebrate his birthday. Casa Bonita is Cartman's favorite place on Earth and he is pretty pissed off when he finds out he is not invited.  Naturally, he hatches up a scheme where Butters ends up locked away and presumed dead, which leaves one open invitation for Cartman. Success!  Until the other kids realize what he has done to Butters. Hilarity ensues as Cartman tries to experience all Casa Bonita has to offer while the cops are chasing after him. “Wow, cliff divers? Awesome!!”

Of course, we had to stop here. Unfortunately, we had just eaten lunch so we didn’t get a chance to see the inside. (The waitress did offer us seats if we paid $10 for drinks and chips, but we chose to not be fat asses.) The little bit that we did experience totally reminded me of a Disney ride, so I could only imagine the epic-ness beyond the velvet ropes.

Full episode can be seen here. Trey ranks this as one of his top 10 favorite episodes because it encompasses all of Cartman's awfulness and narcissism perfectly.

Casa Bonita is located at 6715 West Colfax Avenue Lakewood, CO 80214.
