Cinco de Mayo events/specials [NJ]

Just got this via email from the folks at Barrio Costero, so I figured I’d start a thread that we can use annually. If you’re aware of anything happening near you, this is the place to mention it!

What : Asbury Park Cinco de Mayo Community Block Party
When : Sunday, May 5th from Noon-6pm - RAIN OR SHINE!
Where : Bangs Ave will be closed between Emory St. & the Parking Garage
Why : Because we love a good party that supports our local community! ALL net proceeds will benefit Food Justice at Trinity to help prevent hunger in Asbury Park!

Local Chefs & Restaurants featuring their cuisine in Specialty Tacos include:
• Chef James Avery - The Bonney Read
• Chef Pablo Toxqui - Cross & Orange
• Chef Richard Corbo - Bell Market
• Chef Antony Bustamante - Barrio Costero
• Chef Michael Rabenowitz - REYLA

Enjoy live music by DJ Unique & local musicians! We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

If you’re coming to AP, let me know and I’ll try to meet up and say hi. -Curlz

There is also a pub crawl, which will make me stay far away from Cookman

Sounds like a fun day! There is a “festival” in red bank too. I might have to uber my way over with a back pack of modelos :smile:


UGH–thanks for the heads-up!
I also neglected to add the Cinco de MONGO show at the Lanes on Sunday…but not food-related (unless you’re going to eat disco fries at the Lanes Diner)!

Beer Garden at Blu Grotto, Oceanport, opens for the season. Moroccan Sheepherders are playing 5:30-9:30.
