Dining Divas Enjoy Mexican

Restaurant Just Down the Road

**Lisa Kampeter photo** revisedFollowing in our tradition of a Mexican May, the restaurant location the Dining Divas settled on ended up being a great choice, even though it wasn’t our first choice.

While writer/director Shane Black’s parody of 1970s film noir and buddy cop films has its problems, all of them can be overlooked because The Nice Guys is just fun.

By Lisa Kampeter

For a person who is known as Rand McNally’s daughter, I’m not sure why it’s difficult for me to grasp locations in between 44 and 55 in south city. But I’m always confused, especially when I get on Gravois from the city. Our recent Dining Divas outing took me past Uncle Bills and lots of churches to the neighborhood of Princeton Heights.
