Cinco de Mayo Festivities
Cross your fingers for sun tomorrow because there’s lots of fun to be had around town for Cinco de Mayo! If you didn’t celebrate early over the weekend (or even if you did!) you won’t want to miss these festivities:
After successful block parties for St. Patrick’s Day and New Year’s Eve, the streets will shut down once again tomorrow for the Paragary Group’s Cinco Festival. Participating businesses on the 2700 block of J Street include Aura, Blue Cue, Momo Lounge, Centro and G.V. Hurley’s. The party will include a Mexican food court in Centro’s parking lot, live outdoor music from The Cheeseballs, mariachi bands and Salsambo inside Harlow’s, and even mechanical bull rides! Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
Another option is the Cinco de Mayo party at Zocalo. They’ll be celebrating with live music, Mexican food and their signature margaritas which will be flowing all day long. The party starts at noon and the cost is $10 in advance or $15 at the door.
If you’re more in the mood to kick back with some Mexican food and a margarita, you’ve got lots of yummy choices for that too. We love Azul for their quesadillas, Dos Coyotes for their tacos, Los Jarritos for their cheap eats and Taqueria Davis for their smothered burritos!
