Social – Cinco de Mayo & Dishcrawl

Did you know that Cinco de Mayo isn’t Mexican Independence Day?  It marks the Battle of Puebla when an outnumbered Mexican army defeated invading French forces.  Victory against all odds – sounds like a good reason to celebrate!  Tina Tamale and La Borinqueña Mex-icatessen are hosting a Cinco de Mayo party with with a live performance by youth Mariachi Nueva Luz.  Admission includes chips & salsa, your choice of entree:
House-made Chorizo scrambled with farm fresh eggs with rice, beans, guacamole & tortillas

Shredded Beef Flautas with rice, beans & guacamole

Chicken & Pork Birria served with tortillas

Layered Tamale with red gravy, ground beef, melted cheese & sour cream on a bed of rice & beans

582 7th St, Oakland
Sun, 5/5, 12 – 3pm
$10 general admission, Free for kids under 12


Remember when I tagged along on a Dishcrawl last month?  We had a great time eating our way through four restaurants and getting to know each other along the way.  After a night in Alameda a few weeks ago, it’s coming back to the Temsescal, with four new restaurants.  Now, the stops are technically top secret, but the organizer gave me a hint: “The badass Oakland version of Cheeseboard.”   Any guesses?
Tues, 5/7, 7 – 10pm
