Monday, May 5's Lowdown

Apparently one sure fire way to make sure Humboldt mostly ignores Cinco de Mayo is to let the holiday fall on a Monday. Not a whole lot of fiestas out there, amigos.

Peruse the slim pickings below. Praise to the fine folks at The Siren’s Song Tavern and Persimmons Garden Gallery for taking a stab at Monday joy — both venues are giving Cinco de Mayo a go by featuring local high-energy groups Gunsafe and The Latin Peppers, respectively.

Gracias for the effort, y'all.
