But there are bright spots on the horizon.
Giant plasma TVs.
Follow the blinking neon lights to Banditos Tacos & Tequila, a slick south-of-the-border sports bar from the crew behind Sandbox situated less than a field goal kick away from the Coliseum. It’s opening next Friday.
You’ll find it inside a brick warehouse with big roll-up windows, a dozen 60-inch screens and more than 40 different tequilas. Oh, and weekend brunch with breakfast burritos. Right this way for a little slideshow and menu action.
Maybe you’ll huddle up postgame in the luchador-themed private back room—equipped with more TVs, naturally—along with some mezcal shots and a cucumber-mint number known as the True Mexican. Maybe you’ll skip the stadium concession stand and opt for something more interesting: crispy fish tacos, braised-chicken tacos, guacamole and, yes, more tacos, these ones with hoisin pork and kimchi. Not a bad game plan.
At this point, the score doesn’t seem so important. Just saying.
