Mini-Update: Taqueria Mercado, Bootsy’s, Red

Taqueria Mercado will be opening in Javier’s space.  Thank goodness– authentic Mexican downtown! Terry and I stopped in to Bootsy’s for dinner– did you know they’d changed the menu?  They still have tapas and sushi, but they have gone away from the “small plates” and […]

Fast Food to join other chains on Fountain Square
