07 Thurs, Noche Rica
Taco Loco, 9 p.m., $13
The most Latin way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo is two days late. I kid, and to be fair, this party is more of a celebration of Latin culture than it is a Cinco de Mayo festival, anyway. But don’t be fooled by the culturalism: Even if you’re white as the hair on Newt Gingrich’s head, you’re still invited. And, if you resemble Zack from Saved by the Bell, you’ll also want to attend; this party will rage into the early hours, an activity which white people seem to love. With DJ Adrian G spinning banda, meringue, punta, bachata, duranguense, norteño and reggaeton, this night will be classic. So get some crazy-ass tacos and represent your Latin culture. Or someone else’s. 2326 J Street, www.myspace.com/djadriang2.
