Red Hatters Enjoy Shopping and Lunch in Old Mesilla Village, New Mexico

Saturday, February 28, 2015

Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society drove to Old Mesilla Village near Las Cruces, New Mexico for a fun day of shopping and dining.

There were only six of us this day for various reasons, but we never let small numbers keep us from our official sport of shopping and, of course, good food before and after.  This place has many interesting little shops containing art, clothing, shoes, etc.  It is anchored on one end by a lovely old Roman Catholic Church and they invite people in for tours which the group enjoyed.

Lunch was had at Posta Restaurant, a Mexican eatery with many, many rooms. The food was delicious and the service excellent. The room they led us to was huge enough for a wedding reception and no one there but us at the time.  However, a group of about 15 came in a little later.  On leaving, we somehow split up trying to find a ladies room and we wound around for a while trying to find our way out. As we finally found the door we came in, a large group of people were entering and I said, "Pay attention folks. This place is huge. We've been trying to find our way out for a week and just now found the door!"  One other Red Hatter was with us, Donna W., but the camera failed us!

As usual, yours truly was behind the camera so my darling Doug took this photo when I got home.
We all stopped at the local Dairy Queen on the way back to Alamogordo and got ice cream cones for dessert. It was a beautiful New Mexico day and we had a grand time.

This is all I have to say for now.
