i had NO IDEA about el centro in georgetown. totally agree about bandalero. i may have to break my general ban of the georgetown neighborhood (it requires two very slow buses or one uber ride from my apartment) to try the el centro there.
btw, thanks to the group for getting me through an exceptionally painful afternoon at work.
i live and work about a 2-minute walk away from Wisconsin & M. Having done so for 3 years i assure you that, despite the trouble of getting out to georgetown, it's a great place for dining/drinking. it's snobbish reputation is deserved, but avoidable.
