Ribs held hostage

This is the third year, at least, that the New Year's spare ribs have come from La Hacienda carniceria y taqueria. They sell complete racks there, and at a good price. The trick is to remember "costillas" and "entero." Since the last time we were there, though, signs have gone up, and prices also. The signs are in two languages, although the English versions can be cryptic. There are now lines, also. This is the second time, at least, though, that there wasn't enough cash on hand, so that the purchase was set aside until the Return with Money. The young women at the checkout remember that we've had to run home like this before.
