You might have seen this gaudy color-bomb patio filled with drunk people yelling at passersby on the promenade. You might have wondered if being that drunk in that crowded of a space could possibly be fun. On those occasions you decide that it could, gather your loudest friends and head to Cabo Cantina. Just don’t expect the Mexican food here to be anything above passable - although ideally, you’re too drunk to care. Now get ready to yell at some tourists.
