Tres Jalapenos in Bella Vista applies for a liquor license

Tres Jalapenos, the Mexican spot on the corner of 8th and Christian, has plans for some big changes for 2013 in the hopes of attracting new clientele and contributing to the growing bar scene in Bella Vista.

Move quick for free mix at Margarita Mondays
Open for two years, the restaurant has had moderate success as a BYO but the days of sipping your favorite  beer along with your all-you-can-eat tacos may be limited. As you can tell from the window posting, the owner has applied for a liquor license.
The offerings are still undecided, and there are still at least a few weeks left of BYO and “Margarita Mondays” – a special that provides free margarita mix to those who BYOT (T for tequila, if it isn’t obvious). But once the license arrives, you’re at the mercy of the imported cerveza gods.

The restaurant is also planning some renovations on the interior, according to a source in the restaurant, although there are no details available as to what the new space will look like. We’ll continue to keep you updated as plans become more concrete.
