Life in Mesa > Eat/Drink
Eat, drink and be merry
Whether it’s a bite to eat or socializing with friends, Mesa has plenty to offer
By Gremlyn-Bradley Waddell
Whether you’re a typical student on a tight budget or a non-traditional one looking to live it up a little, Mesa’s restaurant scene is full of tasty offerings for everyone, starting in the city’s center.
Students are welcomed with open doors -and awesome specials – at several downtown Mesa restaurants and cafes. Just a short stroll from campus is three of Mesa’s coolest coffee joints, Inside the Bungalow, the coffeehouse-plus-yoga studio-plus café, and Lo-Fi Coffee, where an 8-ounce cup of joe sets you back just $1.85, and the newest addition, Lost Dutchman Coffee Roasters. Or trade in cereal for a treat like cinnamon roll French toast at Sweet Cakes Café. For lunch, you could linger at Sweet Cakes and order the French dip or BLT with avocado, or you could mosey over to Mango’s Mexican Café and Bakery to snarf fresh tamales and killer nachos. Check out the entire list of restaurants and cafes in downtown Mesa here: Downtown Mesa Association.
Now, if all that studying leaving you parched (and you’re at least 21 years old, of course) head over to the Desert Eagle Brewery for micro-brew action, or party like you’re in your own backyard at The Monastery, where you can grill your own burgers and steaks (a full-service menu is available, too) while sipping imported and domestic libations. Catch the game and a cold one at The Mad Dog Saloon, and for a south-of-the-border-style happy hour, Dos Gringos rules.
UIU and Mesa Community College students, don’t fret – you have plenty of close, mouth-watering options, too. Get filled up on a breakfast classic at Village Inn or any of the egg-centric dishes at T.C. Eggington’s or the Good Egg. Think breakfast should be the biggest meal of the day? Go for the breakfast buffet at the Hilton Phoenix East/Mesa’s own Zuni Grill, which also serves lunch and dinner. Speaking of lunch, nab a quick yet relatively healthy sub just across the street at Jimmy John’s (bonus: drive thru!) or opt for Pita Jungle’s hipster ambiance and vegan-friendly fare. Also nearby is the Olive Garden and Oregano’s Pizza Bistro, which offer lunch and dinner at fairly reasonable prices. A few blocks south, the Cornish Pasty Co. concocts hearty, British, turnover-like temptations and Macayo’s Mexican Restaurant delivers delish Mexican dishes. If you need to let loose, head back to the Hilton’s Atrium Bar, or just stay at Macayo’s and order one of the margaritas, like the Spicy Raspberry version. Fun fact? The recipe’s online. Muchas gracias, Macayo’s!
very needy. Now my philosophy is to take a risk every day, something fun like picking up people waiting for a bus. The 20 year old me would have thought: "Ooh what if something happens?" Today’s me thinks: "I can deal with anything that happens." At my age you really have the best of all worlds. I am still vigorous, fit and healthy and I can go where I like, when I like. Even the looks issue doesn’t worry me. Standards are higher these days but there are more treatments that work. Hairdressers have you emerging like a cheap Michael Kors show pony after one touch up session. It’s magical. Not botox though, it made me look silly, a waste of 400. cheap michael kors bags Anyway, I don’t want to look younger, just good for my age. What matters is confidence, how you inspire others. replica cheap Michael Kors Men are more attracted to me now than they ever were. "You’re so old" say my children when raging at me . "But this is my cheap gucci bags house and you are still going to school," I reply. ‘The lost youth is an asset, you will try anything’ Anne Page works

the Texas rig varies with water depth and wind. The shallower the water, the lighter I go. A lighter weight gives the worm a more natural fall and can get more strikes, however if too light, the worm may catch on the bulrush stems and http://www.nzgirl.co.nz/travel/cheap-jerseys-wholesale-jerseys-free-6qd793-wholesale-jerseys-from-china/ not finish it’s way to the bottom.
