The legendary El Barrio Pub Quiz returned from the land of the living dead last Wednesday, and the next one is tomorrow night’s. Starts around 7 PM. Super prizes and drink specials.
Fiambre is the traditional meal for the #DayoftheDead in Guatemala, which takes place on November 2. But El Barrio Bar is getting a head start tonight with a platter big enough for two at their weekly Noche de Chapin, which serves authentic Mayan meals. Starts at 6 PM.
Every Friday night in September, ladies drinks and beers are half-price at the lakeside bar, where this photo was taken last week. And you can get an all-night Jacuzzi Pass for just Q50. El Dragon also has a great restaurant, and the best Key Lime Pie south of the Florida keys. A friend who was there last Friday said, “Dragon rocks!”
Complimentary snacks are served at 8 PM, and “Roving Boca Blasts” are also on the agenda. El Dragon is near the football field in San Marcos la Laguna, a quick boat ride from San Pedro and Santa Cruz. For more info, see El Dragon Hotel.
The Saturday barbecue starts at noon every Saturday at this cliffside three-level in Tzununa #Atitlan. Great drink specials and beer deals too!
It’s a five-minute boat ride from San Marcos. See their site at Maya Moon Lodge.
After reopening parties last week with a new owner and staff, El Barrio has a new schedule of events and promotions. (But it’s still San Pedro la Laguna’s top hangout for locals.)
Monday: Wings Night. Q2 wings when you spend at least Q25 on drinks.
Tuesday: Pub Quiz at 7 PM.
Wednesday: Nestor’s Night. New meal every week.
Thursday: Noche de Chapin, with Mayan Cuisine.
