After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender baby disk with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Blue Agave Cantina and Tequila Bar on West Short Street. Today's Groupon expires July 16, 2011.
Blue Agave Cantina and Tequila Bar serves a menu specializing in marinated meats and margaritas. Guests unable to domesticate their fire hydrant can cool off with a bowl of guacamole, prepared to order from fresh avocados, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and lime ($6). Entrust hands to tacos, served with salsa, lime, cilantro, and onions on corn tortillas, with your choice of steak, shredded or marinated pork, or chicken ($4 for two). Diners licensed to operate silverware can take a test run with the red-chili and shredded-pork carnitas platter ($11) or the alambres, marinated steak topped with cheese, peppers, and onions, served on a hot skillet ($16).
Blue Agave also concocts several specialty margaritas from hand-squeezed sour mix, agave nectar, and 100% blue-agave tequila. Cointreau and Grand Marnier make winsome companions in the El Jefé margarita ($12), while an unemployed sports mascot bounces on a mini trampoline to retrieve the contents of the top-shelf margarita, infused with Patrón Citronge ($8).
