If I had the money it would be one of my favorite hotels. What I tried to say is, despite the ambience of the Hotel and its dining room with the view of the old bull ring etc, its very pretty hostesses, its excellent service, its courtesy, etc. try the food once and if satisfactory, return.
Jerezano, like a true Spartan, in the eyes of Zacatecas, you have redeemed yourself to the statues of Senior Citizen of the Month. Congratulations for the excellent lift and commentary your adopted city of yore deserves.........
As an aside, please believe me when I say, although I could probably fit into my budget accommodations at La Quinta Real, I too, very much like, NEOhio1, and others, budget my pennies for special treats where we can bask in luxury, even if its only periodic and as needed.
One of our favorite pastimes while traveling is speaking to the locals and enquiring as to which restaurant, tácito stands and other popular haunts they most enjoy going too. For the most part this has proven a true blue method of getting closer to the nature and spirit of the locals environs.
Its funny you should mention Sanborn’s because the following night after having imbibed and danced our calzones off at the unique and one of a kind, popular La Mina de Eden, we ran into dancers which were sitting right next to us at La Mina, at the Sanborn cocktail lounge.
We always enjoy visiting, dining and drinking at Sanborn’s (when available) and that evening after dinner we likened to drink something a little different, so enquiring with the bartender, he suggested one of his special Sangrias.
We enjoy wine coolers but this guy put a concoction together which was not only tangy, sort of sweet and sour but very cold and in a tall glass that had a kick to it because aside from wine and other liquors he hit it with vodka and yum, the evening smoothed out quickly.
We liked Zacatecas whose atmosphere is very much “alive” with shades of Guanajuato, with more parking and ease of getting around. I could easily envision living very nicely in Zacatecas due in part to ease of access to most everything needed within walking distance if living near or within El Centro. Aside from winters getting a bit frigid, beyond this, prices are good and living is very adaptable.
