Gluten-free Date Bars

Okay, I had another date! This time with Tiko, ha ha. I put on my orange beaded necklace over my tank top, and Tiko and I went out way late – at 6:30 p.m. We got a taxi, went to the little restaurant, “Agave Blu,” on the corner in the Square. And watched “In Time,”  with Bill Nighy. I had guacomole and salsa with lady friends, and could watch Tiko in the doorway as he played and garnered attention from the passers-by. Very romantic – Vilca at night, with the lampposts shining, kids playing, the sounds of dinner dishes and the clinking of glasses. The air was sweet and warm, and the company great! Very fun for me!
