Celebrating Cinco de Mayo for the 150th time.

(May 5) May 5
It was 150 years ago tomorrow that the Mexican army managed to overpower French forces at the Battle of Puebla, which makes this year’s Cinco de Mayo all the more worth celebrating. The Mexican Cultural Institute in Northwest is throwing a fiesta Saturday with lots of music and samples of food from the state of Puebla.

(May 6-July 1) Xanawho? Xanadu!
If you haven’t celebrated disco, or roller skates, or legwarmers in a while Xanadu hits the Signature Theatre’s stage this Sunday. The Washington premiere of the musical comedy promises to transport you to a Venice, California of yesteryear where a Greek muse inspires a struggling artist to create the first-ever roller disco.

(May 6) There’s no app for that
If you’d rather cozy up to a good book than a raucous work of musical theater, there’s the Literary Hill BookFest Sunday afternoon at Eastern Market. More than 30 authors, all of whom call Capitol Hill home, will discuss their novels, biographies, historical accounts, and children’s books.

Music: “Mariachi el Bronx” by Mariachi El Bronx
