In nearby Tahoe City there are plenty of zesty weekend venues and Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Here’s a few of them:

Grab a bike from Granlibakken and peddle to nearby Blue Agave at the Tahoe Inn in Tahoe City for the best Mexican dining with a lake view. The menu offers dozens of Latin selections and you won’t want to miss the famous Blue Agave Margarita. Blue Agave will also be offering some Cinco de Mayo specials such as $3 Pacificos, Tecate cans, Cabo Wabo Silver shots, Herradura Reposado shots, two for $5 cans of beer, and half price quesadillas.

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a festive party at River Ranch from 4:30-8:30 p.m. Mexican beers and margarita specials with complimentary mini appetizers.

Not into tequila? Try local wines and sample sumptuous appetizers on Sunday at Sunnyside with an Auction & Wine Tasting by the Kiwanis Club of North Lake Tahoe starting at 3 p.m. Sign-in at the silent auction for an opportunity to get discounts on vacations, dining packages, home maintenance services, clothing, jewelry and accessories.

The party gets loco with Cinco de Madness featuring Afrolicious Soundsystem at Hacienda Del Lago in Tahoe City. The party begins at 9 p.m. with funky Latin-infused beats by San Fran’s own Afrolicious Soundsystem joined by DJ’s Pleasuremaker and Se with Diamond Vibes on percussion.
