    "Thirsty? Order the extra-large margarita. Want to sleep on the floor? Order three! Get four and you're taking the bartender home for amor!"

    "Great place. Reserve online and get the discount. Call ahead and see if Cary is leading your tour. He's a longtime local, super friendly and lots of insider tips."

    "A nice attraction, but not a "must-do." The museum is extremely loud; many exhibits auto-play very loud sounds in a small space. Also, be prepared for some stomach-churning sights, like shrunken heads"

    "Skip any pasta with a cream-based sauce. The sauce arrives thin as gruel, looks unappetizing and tastes about the same. The "Pasta Bravo" is probably the best bet if you MUST have pasta. Go for pizza."

    "Tip your barista - and ask for extra whipped cream and chocolate syrup. You'll get a mini-sundae on top of your coffee - and enough sugar to send you into the morning with a huge bounce."
