    Cinco de Mayo comes early to Biscayne Boulevard.

    If you just can’t wait for May 5 to break out the beers and your sombrero, head over to Biscayne Boulevard this weekend for Cinco de MiMo.

    Named after the street’s Miami Modern-style architecture, Cinco de MiMo is an exploration in Miami’s eateries with explanations and tours about the historic area located between 67th and 77th Streets and Biscayne Boulevard.

    In addition to the culture and cuisine, look for live music, street performers (and we’re not talking about homeless people begging for change), face painting, classic cars, shopping, art, even a dog parade.

    Following the lead of its sister event, Taste of MiMo, Cinco de MiMo will offer up cheap eats ($2-to-$5) at some of the area’s most touted restaurants. (Yes, we mean Michy’s.)

    Look for Red Light, Moonchine and Uva to offer up samples, too. And what Cinco de Mayo festival is complete without a little Mexican? Luckily, the Boulevard has Ver Daddy’s Taco Shop to offer up some guac with your weekend. “Ole!”
