Cinco de Mayo = good eats

cincodemayoCinco de Mayo is this weekend and that means lots of yummy food and beer. The list of places doing something special for the day includes:

  • Downtown’s huge Cinco de Mayo festival on Fulton Mall starts Friday and runs through Sunday. Food booths, crafts, folklorico dancers and live musicĀ  will stretch from Kern Street to Fresno Street. It runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day.
  • It’s “Cinco de Elbow” (huh?) at the Elbow Room, which is already partway through its five-day celebration. They’ll be Mexican dancers at 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. A Santana tribute band starts playing a noon Sunday. There’s food and beer specials too, including camarones a la diabla and posole.
  • The folks at Ramos Torres Winery in Kingsburg are celebrating their Hispanic heritage Saturday. From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., they’ll be serving tacos with wine. The event is free for club members, $15 for everybody else.

I’m sure there’s more places having Cinco de Mayo events, so feel free to let us know.
