Looking for something fun to do in Dallas this weekend to celebrate Cinco de Mayo? Well you’re in luck because here’s the scoop:
Dos Equis, Red Bull, and ILiveInDallas.com are teaming up with the Infinite Agency to host the most epic Cinco De Mayo party you’ll go to this year! Cinco In the City Block Party – The Official Fiesta of Dallas starts at 2:00 pm Saturday, May 4th, and goes till midnight Sunday, May 5th.
The shindig will go down in none other than the parking lot of the Downtown Dallas El Fenix. The fiesta starts at 2:00pm and the bands go on from 6:00 pm -10:00 pm. Come out, or you’ll be regretting waiting three hours for those “free” margaritas around town. Why wait until the 5th, when you can listen to music, chow down, and drink-up wearing cheap sombreros and fake mustaches a day early? The official sponsor is Dos Equis, which there will be plenty of to drink.
About El Fenix: El Fenix was founded in 1918 by Mike Martinez, El Fenix is known for its brand of Tex-Mex cuisine, and has been a Dallas staple for almost 100 years.

There’s a NEW Food Park in town, in case you haven’t heard, located in South Dallas at Heritage Park (formerly known as Old City Park). The Grand Opening is Sat 7/28 and I thought it would be fun to get a group together to check it out! We’ll probably get there early and head over to Lee Harvey’s for beverages on the patio afterwards.

Bolsa Mercado Summer Meet & Eat Pop-up Dinners!
Executive Chef Jeff Harris of Bolsa has kept pretty busy this summer. In addition to running the popular Bolsa on Davis St in Oak Cliff, each Friday Night, he’s also been hosting pop-up community-style dinners on the big table that seats 20 inside at Bolsa Mercado next door.
Last Friday evening, that long table hosted a gathering of delightful dinner company. The food and the conversation flowed as nicely as the wine pairings. Next week, and on the last Friday of every month, Chef Harris will feature a vegetarian dinner menu. And with the lovely local ingredients they source, and organic fruits and veggies at their peak of season, a vegetarian dinner at Bolsa Mercado is something even this meat eater would love.
Each dinner is $75/person and includes five or more courses with wine pairings and gratuity included! The menu is announced the Monday before each dinner. To attend call (214) 367-9367 or email email@example.com with your credit card number to reserve your seats.
(214) 367-9367 | 614 W. Davis St., Dallas, Texas 75208
