Cinco de Mayo

It’s time (again) for one of America’s favorite co-opted [drinking] holidays—Cinco de Mayo! I’ve been looking around online for specific Cinco de Mayo-related events, and have thus far found a surprising scarcity of them.

The Mexican restaurants will of course be celebrating the day and will be good destinations. Here are some other happenings that I found:

  • JC’s Bar & Grill is featuring $3 margaritas, Pacificos, and Coronas.
  • Over at Seven Restaurant and Nightclub, Salsa dancing is the order of the night, with drink specials.
  • The Summit Saloon is planning a Cinco de Mayo Fiesta with Mexican food and drink specials.
  • Eric Tollefson will be playing Father Luke’s Room at McMenamins starting at 7pm—a free, all-ages show.
  • Resource Fair and Cinco de Mayo Celebration in Sisters: A bilingual community-resource fair with information on health care, housing, education, employment and more; with music and folkloric dancing; free; 5-8 p.m.; Sisters Elementary School, 611 E. Cascade Ave.; 541-588-6298. (via the Bulletin)

  1. 10 Barrel has pitchers of Jonny W’s famous Margheritas, and Mike is whippin up BBQ Pork and Ancho Chili Tamales, and tossin’ Taco Pizzas from an OLD family recipe. Should be a good time!
