El Coyote really knows how to get into the Christmas spirit. The restaurant, which has been around since 1931, not only serves some of the city's best margaritas, but also puts together a wicked holiday diorama. When we popped by for happy hour last week, we noticed that there are a lot of iconic food-oriented items. Take a look at some of their hilarious set-ups, like their Graceland/Candyland hybrid. And note the taco stand. Is it just us or does it look a heck of a lot like Henry's?
