In a neighborhood full of bars, La Calaca Feliz is the perfect starting point for the classic one-two punch. If you’re not interested in making moves, these margaritas can stand up to any cocktails in the area. Food-wise, focus on the fish tacos and the enormous portions of guacamole, which you can add things like crab, fig, and bacon to.
