Speaking of, where's your favorite place to get a drink downtown? Perennial favorites of mine are McNellie's and Arnie's, mostly because I see people I know at both of those places pretty much anytime I go in, and I love to see people I know. Arnie's is small, and sometimes it takes a solid 30 minutes to get a beer from a waitress at McNellie's, but I'd take them both over Orpha's or, heaven forbid, El Guapo's.
Sorry. I want to like El Guapo's. I really do. I've heard it has improved since I last went, but I've been scared to give it another chance. I don't know - their margaritas are about as big as my head (you didn't hear this from me, but folks, that's a giant head), and it's hard to stay away from that for too long.
So, Mack, what'll it be? McNellie's, Arnie's, or [insert your favorite downtown bar here]?
