Something to do on a hot Saturday night

Funny you mentioned the smoking bit. I was going to comment about that in your vegan comment. But I thought better not to trash an establishment that I used to like. I used to really like going there until one night the cig smoke drove me away. And what'a worse is that they sell cigs right at the entrance. Someone seems to think it's cool. I know the proprietors used to smoke ...don't know if they still do.

Oh, and by the way, I got drugged there about 2 months ago. Can't say Mercadito Zanka had anything to do with it.
But they could have acted more 'compassionately' in my attempt to reconstruct the Incident.


So sorry to hear about the drugging. Serious bummer. Was something put into your drink? Were you robbed?

Yes, I was surprised that smoking was tolerated because it seems to be banned in all the hotels and restaurants, even the outdoor restaurants. Can any of the ex-pats comment? Is it because they serve alcohol? I just moved to another table as there were plenty to choose from.

From my attempt to research and recreate the situation, 'Rohypnol', one of the 'date rape' drugs, known colloquially as 'roofies' was the substance snuck into my beer. And my assumption was that they (two women) wanted to rob me, but unbelievably got nothing.The last time or two I was at MZ the cig smoke was lighter. But there was a period I just couldn't tolerate it anywhere in the entire food court.
