We shudder to think of what Casa Vega’s electric bill looks like after the month of December. A kaleidoscope of floor-to-ceiling Christmas lights with garland and tinsel cover this throwback every holiday season, and have for more than 40 years—making it one of the most festive spots in town. This year, owner Christy Vega has pulled out all the stops: Christmas trees, tinsel, string lights, light-up Santas, reindeer and garlands galore will deck the halls, including new outdoor decor in the iconic Mexican restaurant’s archway drive thru. Patrons can also enjoy a special holiday menu with mole enchiladas and festive drinks, including a Mexican coffee, snowball margarita and hot chocolate in an adorable Santa mug.
