Crooner's Lounge, the bar inside Azteca Mexican Restaurant in Garden Grove, is the choice of professional inebriates everywhere. Azteca is covered in all things King (more than 1,500 pieces of memorabilia), which means you can get a buzz on and ponder the temporality of life and the ephemeral nature of fame. Then, stagger over to the karaoke DJ and give "In the Ghetto" your best shot. Hell, it's guaranteed you'll be at least as good as Elvis himself toward the end. Once you croon, weave your way into the restaurant and order something with as clear and steady a voice as you can manage. Azteca is known for its garlic sauce, which does a pretty good job covering the smell of liquor. Okay, so the food's not the best Mexican around, but c'mon, you're drunk. Does it really need to be? Now do the right thing and call a cab. You want to live to overindulge another day, right?
