So that means if I want to go to Mad Mex for happy hour I can just park at the failed borders? Score.

We parked there a few months ago to go to Pizza Sola, and some lot attendant yelled at us and said we would be towed. Not sure how much they are policing that lot now, but FYI. I think if he didnt see us going down the steps, we would have been OK.

I dunno, I've been crossing the footbridge from Eastside to Ellsworth, and then walking through the construction site, past Highland, and then around a building. It pops me up in the shopping plaza w/ Tasty, Pizza Parma, and Supercuts.

But my Mad Mex going has decreased considerably since shutting the bridge down.

My sister works at Dinette and I think I remember her telling me cars are towed often. She either said that or never mentioned it and I'm making that up, I can't remember which.

Haven't dont it in a while, but never saw an attendant and obviously never got towed.

The gf loves Dinette, thus I go there frequently.

Dinette is overpriced trash.

I've seen people towed from there. Last time I was there I was going to park and walk over to BRGR for drinks with some people, and they were towing a car.

I've only had the pizza. No complaints about that from me.

Sonoma Grille is in walking distance from your hotel. I like it. So is Meat and Potatoes, which I really like.

I would have added NOLA, but didn't he say he wanted to spend under $150? :wink:

J/K, NOLA is wonderful. But it can be a tad pricey.

This is wholly dependent on whether a bottle of wine is ordered or if you're drinking individual beers/liquor drinks. 150 goes quick if you get a 60-70 dollar bottle of wine.

That's a good call. I think it's like 79 a person. You should definitely call now for reservations so they can plan

Is Sesame Inn on 19 on the left hand side if you are heading south from the Village? That place always looks packed. Maybe I will try that.
