What are you Do(512)ing for Cinco de Mayo?!

Who knew Austinites got so jazzed about Cinco de Mayo? Come Wednesday, this town will be bumpin’ with tons of music, food, booze, and general debauchery.


Por ejemplo, have you heard that La Condesa is hosting another Cinco de Mayo Block Party? The event covers an entire block on West 2nd between Guadalupe and San Antonio with free food and drinks from the neighborhood restaurants – AND it has some great music from Brownout, Ocote Soul Sounds, Mariachi Tamazula, and DJ Chicken George. Definitely check out the details on that. I know where I’ll be spending Cinco de Mayo!

No matter what you may be looking for in celebration style, odds are if you wait until after work on May 5th to check out your options, you will find yourself slightly overwhelmed. For this reason, Do512 has taken the time to punch out a consolidated list of the events we find worthy of your attendance. Scroll the list, click the links for more details, and plan a festive evening!
