At MID CityBeat we promote all things cool and worth promoting in Yucatan. We pride ourselves in showcasing local talent, cuisine, art, and culture. It is hard to see so many of those we work with and promote go from normalcy one week to the brink of closure or total bankruptcy the next, Literally, within 3-4 days things have been turned upside down and it's hard to imagine what a month of this will bring (not to mention the very serious health concerns)! This whole ordeal is a mess and we just have to brace ourselves and accept the situation and do our part to uplift those around us and stay safe and healthy.​

We at MID CityBeat want to make sure that in the crisis we are all healthy and that we continue to support the local economy. One of the wonderful things about living in Merida is that the majority of businesses are locally owned—some are huge million dollars outfits employing hundreds or thousands of people, others are mom & pop shops just working daily to bring ya great service and pay their bills. All of them put their heart and soul into their business (believe me when I go to promote them they sit me down and tell me the whole’s beautiful to be a part of). So let’s be sure to continue supporting them as times get tough and we are mostly staying home.


We will be informing you about all the places that are taking extra precautions and extremely hygienic and sanitary measures as well as offering takeout, pick up or delivery. 

Here is the message from The Collective of Gastronomic and Tourism Industry Professionals of Yucatán:

Food In the Time Of Covid19: 

Merida Restaurants Make Home Deliveries

MID CityBeat On the Merida Scene During the Covid-19 Crisis

Let's Continue to Support the Local Economy! --We are all in this together.

**Check the list below for all restaurants taking extreme precautions and making home deliveries.


As they say in Spanish "una mano lava la otra y las dos lavan la cara"-- very fitting in these times "One hand washes the other and they both wash the face" meaning...if we work together we can all survive this with the least amount of damage.


We have found ourselves in quite a dilemma with this virus that has basically taken over the world and told us that it is in charge until further notice. We are all trying to understand the severity, be smart and rational at the same time.


Like Thomas Zimmer said in his twitter account: "The weirdest part about living through the #Covid19 pandemic is this strange mixture of normalcy and emergency that we are all experiencing. I constantly feel that I am either over or underreacting, or really both at the exact same times, it's surreal."

He totally nailed it.
