Micheladas are a favorite of mine -- and I enjoy them the most at Takoba, a wonderful Mexican restaurant. Tomato juice with spices (mixed with beer) will make you rethink your go-to Bloody Mary order.

Here's a secret to the Olive Garden: if you don't feel like eating much, order a small side of angel hair pasta. It's plenty to fill you up and costs less than $5. It's not on the menu but it's yummy!
