Vamos McAliendo

It's no secret to Valley residents, but the rest of Texas learns that La Plaza Mall in McAllen is a prime destination for Mexican shoppers -- it's even turned into a phrase. From the Houston Chronicle:

There are no celebrities or upscale shopping districts. Yet, La Plaza Mall, which is half the size of Houston's Galleria, is experiencing a fashion retail boom mostly by drawing Mexican shoppers across the U.S. border. ...

In fact, people along the border have created a Spanish phrase, vamos McAliendo ("let's go shopping in McAllen"), to refer to the border shopping experience.

Still, as a man, I don't like going to the mall. It's just a guy thing.
