    The Vanity Plates are playing at a Mexican Tapas & Tequilla Bar in Silver Spring. Plenty of parking. No cover. Songs you can sing along to. My friend, Larry, said this about the menu: "we’re talking “to-die-for” mussels cooked in lime juice and tequila; super tender calamari fried with an unbelievable light batter and an indescribable dipping sauce; lamb chops that are out of this world, Mango and Jicama salad in lime vinaigrette; and an array of fresh grilled seafood." Sounds delicious!
