If you are in Acapulco on a Thursday – and please try to be – you are in for a treat: on Thursdays, restaurants all over the city serve pozole, the traditional Mexican hearty stew of hominy and meat. The strangest but most delightful twist on Pozole Thursday can be experienced only at Pozoleria Los Cazadores where the entertainment is provided by lip-syncing local drag queens. The pozole is authentic and grandmothers and teenagers sing along to Shakira! Start your meal off with a selection of appetizers then decide what kind of pozole you would like: verde, blanco, or rojo (green, white, or red) just like the colors in Mexico's flag. Beer comes served in buckets, six bottles at a time kept cool in crushed ice. The décor must be seen to be believed; moth-eaten stuffed lions stand in corners and leopard skins hang from the walls, souvenirs from some long-ago safari.
