I showed you this view from a different angle a few days ago. This is "our" table. It is right in front of the working, wall fountain. There is a ceiling fan right over it and, as you can see, when it is really hot they bring out a floor fan to blow on us. In this picture, "my" seat is on the upper left. This table affords one of the best views of the street and people passing by. As a bonus, it is the furthest table with a view away from the band next door.
The band next door specializes in rock and rock and salsa. They aren't really that bad but they have been playing the same songs over and over for so many years, I can hardly stomach them anymore. Mostly I am able to just tune them out. I guess I can't blame them. They hardly ever play to the same audience two nights in a row.
Just to the right of the above picture and heading back into the bar area is this wall.
It is a Tequilaria after all. They have hundreds of bottles scattered around the place. Probably any Tequila you could wish for is here. They even have stuff that is $35 US per shot! Oh, they have the "Scorpion Tequila" too. I would never drink it but I know people who have.
That table in front is the special Tequilas. You can have your choice of any two shots of any one featured for 55 pesos. There are some good ones there but some really, really bad ones too. I very rarely drink Tequila. Mostly I stick to beer. I know what I am getting with that.
Across from the great Tequila wall is this shrine.
It has been burning everynight for six years. The wax used to go all the way to the floor and formed a great puddle of wax. It was stunning. However, about two months ago, a very drunk Japanese tourist was trying to take a picture of it and lost his balance. He caught himself on the curtain of wax and broke it off. So now they have trimmed it to make it look as good as possible. Eventually it will be a thing of great interest again.
Finally, here is the bar area itself. We used to walk by here every night on our way to dinner while it was being built. We thought those broken mirror pieces were really tacky back then. But now that it is all complete, they actually look nice and really brighten the place up.
If you ever come to the island, look for me here first!
