Triple Threat

Tequila and Tacos All Day Long

You appreciate a good multitasker.

Take your messenger bag that doubles as a solar charger, your Bluetooth-enabled car that doubles as a phone or your dog that doubles as a tireless yes-man.

So you might enjoy Tropisueño, your new go-to taco truck by day, full-service restaurant by night and all-day premium tequila bar (sort of like the Swiss Army knife of Mexican joints), opening Monday on Yerba Buena Lane.

Starting as early as 10:30am, you can grab a few chicken tacos from the taqueria line and head back to the office, or you can take a more leisurely approach and order up a Carnitas Burrito, then chase it down with a hand-squeezed Margarita de la Casa from the mahogany-topped bar.

But the true transformation occurs at about 5:30pm, when the thatched roof over the taqueria line closes to reveal a hand-painted mural of flamenco dancers, the lights dim to golden tones, and the taco stand morphs into a full-on restaurant serving Grilled Fulton Farms Half-Chicken and Mole Poblano.

The hacienda-style dining room's eucalyptus-branch ceiling and rustic furniture lend an outdoorsy feel, like being on a veranda in Oaxaca, but you'll want to reserve the booth in the alcove at the back, where you'll sit face to face with a four-foot-tall Day of the Dead skeleton decorated with brass charms.

Cue the tequila shots...
