Whether you’re a vato ‘stache toting patriot or an alcoholic looking for any excuse to drink before noon, everyone loves Cinco de Mayo, (unless you are French, in which case, celebrate a day of sacrifice and lament). Getting drunk on Cinco de Mayo is as Angelenian as circumventing federal legal policy to purchase drugs from”licensed doctors”. Sure, you will likely go way over your party budget and end up hooking up with any number of muffin-topped minges, but it’s all in the honor of our hermanos who gave their lives for a country where the drugs come easy and the whores are cheap. Oh, we should also be celebrating Mexico, shouldn’t we? As if LA needs a reason to celebrate tacos and tequila more than we do on a daily basis, here are your top 5 fiestas around town.
Free Taco Dayparty at La Cita
We’ll start with one for our friends Downtown. La Cita has a day-and-night-long party, well from 3 PM to 10 PM, but the selling point here is the free tacos (while carne asada lasts!), music by La Banda Chubasco, DJ Noir, DJ Everest and a ton of surprises you can find only at La Cita, located at 336 S Hill St. Did I mention there is no cover? Si, este gratis fiesta! (I’m leanring…)
Ritual Dubstep at The Dragonfly
Have yourself a dubsteppin’ cinco de mayo at The Dragonfly this Saturday. Do the Mexican hate dance to Gladkill, Surpass, Crimes and Mr Kitt. It’s $10 cover with dirnk specials all night long; a steal for this line-up!
Your set times:
10pm-11pm: Mr Kitt
The Dragonfly is located at 6510 Santa Monica Blvd in Los Angeles. Hours are from 10pm-2am for the 21+
Cinco de Migs at King King Hollywood
Have to been to the King King’s Soul and Tonic Saturday night party? They tend to get wild. Throw house and electro merchant Miguel Migs in the mix and things are bound to get downright cochinga. The King King is located at 6555 Hollywood Blvd. Say Esteban sent you at the door for a reduced cover!
