It's always happy hour when you consult your Spirit Guide. Your best friend for bar-hopping lets you in on the drink and food specials, tells you where the music is (and isn't) and helps you find the perfect spot. A great night out starts with Spirit Guide.

El Mezquite MarketThe biggest clue you’re still in the US is an MVD Express. All the El Mezquite stores have a casa de cambio currency exchange service, which adds to the foreign flavor. So do rows of Mexican and other Hispanic foods with an army of piñatas suspended above. A restaurant, flanked by the store's bakery, features a cafeteria-style serving line that begins in front of a mountain of roasted pig. Next, there’s an array of meats, some mixed with vegetables, and at least one soup. Finally, past horchata and aguas frescas and a cash register, big wooden tables and a 20-something-member salsa bar await diners. (Alibi Staff, January 6, 2011)
