CN6 Book Club: Happy Hour Edition

If you're on the East Coast, cheers to you. It is, in the words of the immortal bard Robert Sylvester Kelly, the freakin' weekend. Fellow residents of the Central time zone, we are minutes away from the 5 o'clock whistle. (As for the rest of you...)

And is there a better happy hour food than chile con queso? "Why Chile con Queso Matters" is actually the opening piece in CN6. (If you don't have your own copy, click the length for full text via the Houston Chronicle.) Houston-based restaurant critic Alison Cook pens an ode to the luscious dip so loving, so full of respect for its lowbrow origins, that she stops just short of taking a Velveeta bath.

Which, come to think of it, might not be the worst thing in the world.

What's your favorite variety of queso?
