2005 El Patio
Home Up



El Patio is a bar located on the square in La Mesilla, the historic square and village just outside of Las Cruces.  Students from the various university teams like to end up there on their last night in Las Cruces (and their fourth, third, second, and first nights in town as well!)


In case you hadn't seen one before, this is a McDonald's, and it was located across the street from our hotel.  Why is it included on the El Patio page?  Because several students stopped here after returning from El Patio for a late-night snack. Because only the drive-through was open at this hour, everyone had to pretend to be a car.
