The Top 5 Cinco de Mayo Celebrations to Attend
May 1, 2019
BY LARA WASSERMAN
Whether you call it “Cinco de Mayo,” “Cinco de Drinko,” “Drinko de Mayo,” or just “May 5th,” there are plenty of things to do this weekend in Dallas -- we like any reason to party! Below are five awesome events that will be happening this weekend to help you celebrate!
Tacos & Tequila WALK
Yes, of course, our own party comes first haha! But can’t party on a Sunday? Since May 5th is a Sunday this year, we decided to celebrate a couple of days early. This is your chance to walk in and out of side-by-side restaurants and shops at Trinity Groves, where more than a dozen different concepts will create their own versions of tacos and tequila cocktails! Plus there will be a DJ, a Photo Booth, fun swag, a live band and more!

Cinco de Mayo at The Rustic
From 10:00 until 3:00, come into The Rustic for their family-style brunch! If you’re looking for something with more Mexican flair, stick around; from 3:00-close, they’ll have flights of their signature tacos and tequilas! If you’re there for brunch, you won’t miss out on the fun, though: free live music starts at 12:30! Plus, Poncho the Miniature Donkey will be hanging out all day. Does it get any better than that?!

If you’ve ever been to Tacos and Tequila, you know they like to party hard! This Sunday to celebrate, they’re offering an endless street taco bar (grilled chicken, brisket, grilled rojo shrimp, BBQ pulled pork, chicken verde, picadillo, poblano mac’n’cheese, salads, roasted veggies, homemade tortillas, a salsa bar...they’re seriously stacked, y’all!), live DJ, mariachis, and a salsa dance contest. It will all take place on their rooftop patio and bar all day Saturday and Sunday, and it’s only $15 to get in!
