The Experience: Guadalupe Reyes is as described in the title an annual Mexican Winter Drink-A-Thon that starts on December 12, the Day of the Vírgen de Guadalupe, and runs almost a full calendar month through the celebration of the Epiphany on January 6 known in Spanish as the Día de Reyes (the Three Kings of the Epiphany). It consists of drinking uninterrupted between these dates, daily if possible. Gringo G knows people who have completed this entire marathon of drinking!
There is no better way to start this Series off than with a visit to the now infamous Condesa Bar with the same name, Guadalupe Reyes Cantina, which strives for and many times achieves the basic mantra of Guadalupe Reyes … make sure to head to a crowded local bar with good beer, drinks and Mexican finger food all winter.
Guadalupe Reyes in the Condesa definitely fulfills this motto and really does offer a lively atmosphere to begin the beer drinking winter fun … particularly if the large groups of motor-bikers who call the place home are outside and inside creating an even more intense ambiance (don’t worry they are safe and in general even friendly in Gringo G's experiences)!
The Location: Calle Atlixco 100, esquina Vicente Suárez, Colonia Condesa, DF.
