      Houndstooth Coffee’s East Austin location will be hosting a party on Saturday, May 5 from 6 P.M. until midnight in celebration of their eighth anniversary and just in time for Cinco de Mayo. Houndstooth Coffee has partnered with their neighbors, Creative Action, for the party, and $2 from each margarita and $1 from each beer sold will benefit Creative Action’s program, Cooking for Campbell. Cooking for Campbell supports L. L. Campbell Elementary Media & Performing Arts Institute’s Spark Schools program, which works to address pressing needs facing low-income schools in Central Texas, such as under-enrollment, rapid teacher turnover, lagging student performance, through arts-based interventions that improve test scores, enrollment, and morale. Houndstooth Coffee will also match the total amount raised for the night. 

      Happy Cinco De Mayo, maybe we should all start the day with a margarita or a cerveza. A free block party today, I think yes! I struggled with what to blog on because there are so many places that I can rave on when it comes to margaritas and unique Austin joints that do not disappoint but a have to say a block party seems to be where the party is at. Plus this is the perfect weather for a good block party!

      The block party will feature an variety of authentic food and drinks provided by neighborhood restaurants – specifically La Condesa & Malaga. As I say each time we have a good street festival in Austin, local musicians will provide entertainment.

      Not only is this my choice for the best celebrations – the Austin Chronicle also named it the pick of the week!

      So sombreros off too Cinco De Mayo! I hope that everyone is as excited as me, after all who doesn’t love a holiday even if we still have to make it through the workday it does make hump day a little easier knowing we have something to celebrate when the day is over!
