Philly’s favorite uncle, Tio Flores (1600 South Street), is bringing the full-force fiesta to South Street for the first annual Tio Flores Cinco de Mayo BBQ Block Party on Thursday, May 5, 2022. Inside, the celebration begins and runs all day Noon to Midnight, but outside come ready from 3:00pm to 10:00pm as Tio Flores will close down 16th Street from South to Kater, and party into the night with their signature margaritas, top-notch tacos, and buckets of beer. On top of food and drink, guests will enjoy live music, Latin beats from DK Kevin Kong, lawn games, salsa dancing, and booze-bustin’ piñatas. Bring your lawn chair and your sunglasses for a Spring fling with a Latin flair. The event is free and open to the public — come rain come shine. Tio’s main bar and restaurant will be open at Noon for standard cantina fare, and the outdoor cookout starts at 3pm (pay-as-you-go, cash only). It’s no secret that Tio Flores is South Street’s most pet-friendly corner, so be sure to bring the pups as well! For more information visit Tio Flores on the socials @tiofloresonsouth.
