The bar was previously run by Maria's mother Mimi DeLuca, but Maria took it over as Mimi's mind began to deteriorate. Maria runs the business, bartends, and does palm readings.
On the anniversary of Rosa Ortecho's death, the bar hosts a 90's Night.
Twice a month, the Wild Pony has "Ranchero Night" when they open their doors to people who need free meals. It includes live music performed by Hank Gibbons's band, who play for free "because they're terrible." The crowd includes addicts and vagrants. The Wild Pony uses a door stamp on those nights.
Theme and features
Wild Pony is a traditional-style mid-west bar. This is in contrast with tourist-friendly establishments in Roswell that include alien-themes.
It includes two pool tables, wooden tables and chairs, booths, and a full-service bar. It does not appear to offer food.
