When we leave the office, we desperately need sanctuary. By "sanctuary," we mean a pretty place where anonymity is a premium, the tequila flows at a low price and patio seating is an option. Zócalo on the Plaza buzzes hard on weekdays between 3 and 7 p.m., but you'd hardly notice. The waitstaff and bartenders keep the margaritas and Mexican drafts coming at a steady pace. The mini tacos are delivered hot and spicy. And the trendy folks? They come and go, too self-involved to notice the spot of salsa on your tie or the empty seat across from you. When you're feeling more social, Zócalo's happy hour is just as bueno with a group, especially one full of mujeres (who get $1 off each margarita). To that, we say, "Another round!"
