Typically scheduled for the last Friday of the month, Viernes Culturales takes place tomorrow (Friday, Dec. 17th) in order to catch the Christmas spirit.

Options for drink and food are plentiful, but don't forget to check out the new addition Quiereme Mucho...Morena while you're in the area.
This Saturday (December 18th), Sustain Restaurant + Bar opens its doors at 5 p.m. Focused on sustainability and seasonality, Executive Chef Alejandro Piñero has crafted a menu with fresh, regionally sourced items and has filled the bar with fresh cocktails and craft beer.
