Visit this de-sanctified Catholic church -- now one of the city's premier live-music venues -- to catch the almost famous, rising local acts, and intimate performances by the truly famous cruising through town on an off-night. The sprawling Mr. Small's complex also includes recording studios and a skate park.
CP REVIEW: This local chain’s several lively, funkily decorated restaurants boast an inventive selection of Cal-Mex cuisines. Mad Mex is a good stop for vegetarians, with dishes such as chick-pea chili and eggplant burrito. It’s not genuine Mexican by a long shot, but if there were a country with this food, it’d be great to vacation there. [July 2007]
