A PERFECT DAY
Entertainment for the entire family
By Antonio De Jesús Aguado
The historic center is always full of life, people, food, drinks and interactive history is everywhere. Here is a proposal for having a perfect day with a cup of coffee, a delicious cake, a visit to the center of historic interpretation, and to finish Italian and Argentinean food.
Cumpanio Correo 29 centro. Mon—Sun 8am—10pm
The best and hot Italian Coffee is here, which can be delighted with freshly baked bread, as a chocolatín filled with bitter chocolate. For breakfast an omelet with organic vegetables, crepes with pork skin, or you also can ask for the Cumpanio eggs. Ask for the dinner menu too.
Center for Historic Interpretation and the former city hall Plaza Principal 8 Centro. Tues—Sun 8:30am—4pm
For learning Mexican history, there is nothing better than living and touching it. In el Centro de Interpretación Histórica, children, young and adults can have a funny time playing with swords, hats, rifles and other guns used during the independence war, even wear the shoes of 1810 (all these articles are replicas). Also, there is a projection on the floor, where the history since the arrival of Cristobal Columbus is told.
Former city hall
Take advantage of your time and visit to the Centro de Interpretación and stroll through this building, built in the 18th century. The municipal jail was located next to the city hall. This house is very important because on September 1817, the first city council of the independent México was made up here.
Tomato Mesones 62 Centro. Mon—Sun 12pm—10pm
It is a fusion restaurant offering Argentinean and Italian food; visitors can taste pastas, salads, vegetables lasagna and of course a great white or red wine.
During the dinner, or earlier ask for a Martini Cumpanio, prepared with mescal.
Most of the bars are located around the historic center.
There are rooftop bars playing all kind of music, or those offering seducing for a karaoke night.
