Visiting El Paso for a (work)week, seeking interesting and worthwhile activities for the off-hours.

I'll be visiting El Paso, Texas the second week of March, participating in a Spring Break Pro Bono Caravan--law school's answer to Alternative Spring Break--helping a local advocacy center with immigration and asylum cases. I'm flying in Sunday and out Saturday, and will be putting in full 9-5 workdays from Monday through Friday. My question: is there anything culinary, cultural, recreational, educational, engaging or otherwise can't-miss in El Paso that, most importantly, is open/accessible not during normal business hours? I've consulted past questions, but my focus is closer-in smaller-scale attractions---anything remotely interesting, really, that would enliven an evening.
Lodgings are downtowny and I'll be relying on public transportation, although I'm not disinclined to walk long distances. (Also, Ciudad Juarez is not an option due to prudence or perhaps lily-liveredness: as genuine national treasure Rick Perry put it, "it's the most dangerous city in America.") Thanks in advance, ladies and gents!
