Next to a bar known for their world famous Nachos

But this place is partially named after Leonardo da Vinci’s Bae,

You’ll look for drinks but you’ll find art, gals and Muchachos

The focus is creativity, cocktails and nighttime Play.


Look for a neon heart in addition to our Papel Picado Corazon to Start

This restaurant is at the foot of a resting place for the traveling Weary

Named for the one person in the world that loves you like their finest work of Art

The food here will nurture your soul, but don’t expect to be called Dearie.


Venturing into the oldest Street in town, is the very little we can Foretell,  

Find the shop with a statue of a singer known for Heartbreak Hotel

While you’re there, buy and sell at your Leisure

But keep in mind, the Hidden Heart is the true Treasure


The food served here originated in Spain

Named after cuisine served in small portions as meals or Snacks

Look for a silo of food where the tastes are anything but Plain

Tucked in a part of Downtown known for trains and Tracks


Think of a Year when selling drink was once again made Legal,

When exclusivity made you feel naughty but Regal   

Named after a time when you needed a password for Access

Ponder the clues and a simple Google search will reward you with an Address

Winners will be announced on Tuesday, February 13, 2020 via social media, INSIDER newsletter and this web page.
