Party Zone Night Club, 3958 N. Academy Blvd.
Sunday, May 5, 7 p.m.
If you wanna get your real-deal Mexi-feel on for Cinco de Mayo, grab a shot of tequila and your dancing shoes and head on down to the Party Zone this weekend for a mezcla de Tejano, Tex-Mex, Latin conjunto, rock 'n' roll, blues and more (which explains the "Plus"). Since 1997, the group of veterans from various tumbleweed towns in the Southwest has been makin' boot-stompin' music for good-time crowds. With their specialties "Margarita" and "Cumbia del Sol," John Ballesteros and his crew will unscrew your do and teach you the true meaning of independencia.
