Description:

ABOUT THE HER HELMET THURSDAYS PROJECT:
Businesses and organizations participating in HER Helmet Thursdays help HER / Mother Earth by providing discounts on Thursdays for people who bike. A long-term project with no scheduled end-date, HER Helmet Thursdays was launched in 2009 in Monterey County, California as a public service. NOTE: When participating businesses and organizations sign up, they are provided a staff reference sheet. Many have frequent staff changes. Just in case a staff person on duty isn't familiar with this long-term project, it may be helpful to have the listing for that location pulled up on your mobile phone screen (or print a copy of their listing to take along), so you're prepared to kindly show their listing.
Before claiming discount, refer to FAQs and project details, including date restrictions, in "LISTINGS, Map, How to Get the Discounts, and FAQs about HER Helmet Thursdays" at http://www.bikemonterey.org.

ABOUT THIS PARTICIPANT:
Authentic Mexican food prepared with the best ingredients, such as guacamole made with only Haas avocados, salsas made fresh throughout the day, and handmade tamales prepared in the traditional manner, then wrapped in cornhusks for flavor and moisture retention. Several large dining rooms and a festive bare including many window tables on the bay, where you can watch the waves and marine life.

Bike Tips:

Just off the Cannery Row bike path, and two blocks from the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Coming from the Fisherman's Wharf/downtown Monterey side of the bike path, pedal north (in direction of Aquarium) until you see the Bay Bikes shop on your right. Just after Bay Bikes, you'll reach Hoffman Avenue. Turn right onto Hoffman Avenue (if traveling with children, perhaps walk this last stretch). At the bottom of the very short hill, you'll cross Cannery Row Avenue. Immediately on your right is the large El Torito parking lot, with the restaurant situated beside the bay.
