Loads of eateries and places that will be happy to sell you just a drink. The music, the lights and the crowds make this place special as you check out the venders in the park that is central to this plaza.

Good place to eat with free wifi. Shady and peaceful not too touristy. Short walk from anywhere on the "Blue Line" thru town.
