4 Cinco de Mayo Events Not to Miss

It is no secret that San Franciscans like to imbibe. It often takes no more than a glimpse of sunshine to fill the City parks with grown-ups eager to relive college, but what happens when you throw May into the mix? The result could be a Hunter S. Thompson novel.

Bay to Breakers, May 2010

In a city whose residents spend a significant chunk of their income on food and libations, it surprises us that there are not more “creative” options for Cinco de Mayo. After all, if Jesus’ rising is celebrated with big wheel races in silly costumes, you’d expect the nation that brought us tequila to inspire an even crazier event.

We’re a little upset that the only Cinco de Mayo parties seem to involve bro-y pub crawls and traditional dance; however, here’s a list of your best options:

The event starts at 4:30pm and will feature SF Giants Official DJ and a series of drink and food deals. Buy tickets to Pedro’s Cantina here.

Union Street pub crawl starting at Bar None at 5pm. Buy tickets to the event here.

North beach pub crawl runs from 2-6pm. Buy tickets to the event here.

For a more family friendly, cultural option-Dolores Park is hosting the 8th Annual Cinco de Mayo festival from 10-6pm. For more information, visit their website here.
