In this digest: Mexican Independence Day, party like it’s 1999, and football watch parties. 


Celebrate Día de la Independencia

East End Backyard is going all out for Mexico’s Independence Day on Friday, Sept. 16. Stop in for a vendor market, live music, a lotería, and plenty of drink specials. You can even bring your instrument and join the open jam session.


A night of Millennial music

Dance the night away to the music you still love. Make plans to be at The Secret Group’s 90s & Y2K Dance Party on Saturday, Sept. 17. The sounds of Britney Spears, Vanilla Ice, Tupac, and more will fill the building until 2 a.m. Admission is free, but the party is for 21 and up only. 


Football and more this weekend

Start with a guacamole and salsa contest on Friday. Add in a Saturday afternoon of college football with some bonus boxing that night. Then finish things off with a top-notch NFL rivalry game on Sunday. Little Woodrow’s has you covered all weekend long.
