This is Lily. I was visiting my favorite bartender today (and he recruited Lily for my strangers project. She's a bubbly & smiley waitress at Five Star. By the way, Five Star has a pretty funny tagline: "hide your cats". Yupp, Five Star is a Chinese restaurant. Lily is from Mexico City and moved to the U.S. at 14 years old. She's worked at Five Star for 10 years and she (along with her husband) is opening up their own place next month. It's a Tequila and Empanada bar. Being a Tequila affectionado, this came as very exciting news to me. They will feature regular Tequila tastings and will serve an eclectic variety of empanadas. I can't wait to visit!
Lily is #33 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at http://www.100strangers.com/
