Parking: Parking gets easier after 6pm, when the meters stop. After 6:30pm, you can also use the Bank of America parking lot just down Winward behind the restaurant.

Know Before You Go: Mao's is strictly B.Y.O.B. If you forget to stock up beforehand, a liquor store is located a few blocks away on the corner of Horizon and Main.
