Girls trip to play & dine: please critique 4 days in Mexico City mid October

arnage | Aug 8, 201910:18 AM     9

My 3 girlfriends and I will be visiting Mexico City from nyc for the first time 10/17-10/21. We will stay at an Airbnb in la Condesa or Roma. I’ve researched and read your helpful posts. Please critique the following. Note we will have a vegetarian gf join us Sat afternoon - Mon. I on the other hand am a carnivore, am not a big breakfast food person (eggs/French toast etc) but have an affinity for fine chocolate/pastries. My friends are less picky. I speak minimal Spanish but will brush up beforehand. Thank you in advance. We are counting down!

Thurs: explore Polanco, Pujol 6:15pm, Jules basement speakeasy
Fri: Sabores Mexico food tour in historic center, house of tiles (open -1am), Torre Latinoamericana city view (-10pm), Catedral Metropolitana (-8pm), Lucha Libre show 8:30pm, hanky Panky speakeasy
Sat: Contramar 12pm, Chapultepec park & castle (-5pm), national anthropology museum (-7pm), Maximo Bistrot 7:30pm or tacos (super tacos chupacabras (is the one by the park the same as the cayoacan one?)/el Greco/los Panchos) & drinks (Xaman bar 9:45pm, Maison Artemisia 9:30pm, Baltra)
Sun options:
1. Breakfast at Fonda Margarita, Frida Kahlo museum/Coyoacán, lunch tacos chupacabras, canal ride at Xochimilco
2. Teotihuacan ruins (perhaps with hot air ballon ride). La Gruta
3. Stay in Mexico City: Pasillo de Humo/el Cardenal/Lalo breakfast, or pastries at Pasteleria ideal/panaderia rosetta, National palace (-5pm), Templo mayor (-5pm), Maximo bistrot 2:30pm (prob won’t make it due to timing), Le Merced market (-7pm), other sights we didn’t cover, Dinner Pasillo de Humo 6pm, maybe show at Palacio de Bella Artes or Baltrax bar 8pm. Get churros at el Moro, ice cream at Neveria Roxy, candy at dulceria de Celaya
Mon before airport: 10am brunch at Pasillo de Humo, Lalo or Masala y Maiz

Recs for best ice cream? I like it very creamy (not icy)

Should I buy tequila (gifts) at la Europea or duty free at the airport?

Where can I buy excellent artisanal chocolate and coffee (or other food gifts)?
