Loudish ’90s rock was on during our visit, but it wasn’t so loud that you couldn’t talk to people around you. Essay question: Why should I drink here?
It’s Friday night, and you want to go out. You don’t want to go anywhere pretentious, but you don’t want to slum it, either. You want to drink a beer, maybe do a shot (of tequila, preferably) and you don’t want to be elbow-to-elbow with the fake-ID crowd. If you’re downtown and find yourself in this situation, try Chico’s. The drink specials are sweet, the bar is spacious and super-casual without being divey, and you can gorge on tacos to your heart’s content until the kitchen closes at 10 p.m.
