Cinco de Mayo in Austin

Don’t take it upon yourself to manage the Mexican Holiday alone, do it in groups.

“Austin Pub Crawl” has the best options so far. $10-20 for access to the lowest specials downtown.

Everybody Celebrates The Mexican Holiday

Remember: you will not get the best specials available if you do this alone.

The majority of the day, beers will be $1-2 if you join and if you don’t drink beer, tequila is the same price. Stay with those choices to keep money in your pocket.

The theory of the pub-crawl is a group of partiers put on a schedule to make sure that all the good spots are hit. The problem is the schedule is about 12 hours long, so good luck trying to tough it out. It starts at noon and goes till midnight, but really they’ll stretch it till 2 am for the dedicated.

Culture Fills the Streets

Advice: don’t let alcohol be the only thing you experience on this holiday. Dancing is a big part and it’s always fun to learn something new. Food will be available at more places than usual, but don’t be fooled: bar tenders car a lot less about your burrito meat temperature than their regular bar duties. If you’ve got to stop and refuel, pick a restaurant.

Austin is a very good choice for this holiday, but pace yourself. The more time your there, the more fun you can have.

    This sounds like a lot of fun and not to expensive either for a day long event.

    I’m glad you posted info on something other than drinking. A lot of people of Mexican descent think it’s really weird that Americans celebrate such a random day in their history, the least we can do is throw a bit of culture in there.
