The first day of ArtsFest on Walnut Street is drawing to a surprisingly dry close, and that means it’s time to start preparing for the next part of the day’s musical activities: Cinco de Mayo.
Um, DeRosh, read your calendar. It’s May 2, dude. Cinco de Mayo is Tuesday.
Tell the pub crawl purveyors that; tonight is the latest holiday-as-excuse-to-drink in center city. Hey, it’s easier to crawl on a Saturday anyway. Church on Sunday starts later than work on Wednesday.
Several of your favorite local-music haunts are ready to roll as part of the event with crazy-good band lineups, as well as a few spots off the pub crawl’s beaten path. Check ’em all out after the break.
