The start of our summer season usually signals that we start to wind down, but May is anything but slow!
This month, you'll enjoy Restaurant Week, Gay Pride and the Bugambilia Festival... what a fun month to be in Vallarta! If you're not in Vallarta this month, make sure to make your plans next year to be in Vallarta during May.
These 3 festivals are yearly events designed to bring you more of what you love about Vallarta during the month of May every year. You'll find details on each below.
Restaurant Week May 15-31, 2013
Your Cocina de Amor proudly serves up another sure-to-please NWJ! slate of deliciousness for Restaurant Week 2013. Some of your NWJ! favorites started out as Restaurant Week options. Our Cream of Potato & Leek soup stayed on the menu when it first debuted on a past Restaurant Week menu. So come in and give it a try. Three courses. Three options in each course. All new.
This year, the Secret of Tuito is just one of the three new entrees waiting for you to try. Roasted breast of chicken with a tamarind sauce on a bed of roasted potatoes and served with panela cheese and tomato slices with a cilantro sauce. Simply delicious.
The Bugambilia Festival May 17-25, 2013
It's here! Vallarta is poised and ready to transform into the bougainvillea capitol of the world! You will be amazed at the wonderful activities and fun events to enjoy the beauty of Vallarta.
Vallarta Pride: May 24-26, 2013
At No Way José! we enjoy saying that like in all families, our family of friends consists of the straight, gay, kooky, eccentric, crazy and lovable characters that exist in every family - we may not all be alike, but we are all equal.
To celebrate the wonderful diversity we enjoy in Vallarta, the first annual LGBT "Vallarta Pride" event takes place this year. Join us for 3 days of music, beach parties, fashion shows, great restaurants and a parade. Of course there's a parade!
Special Vallarta Pride Promo: Ask your Server, "How does No Way José! feel about gays?" When he answers, "We LOVE our Gays!" you get a free NWJ! keychain flashlight! Note: no need to be gay to play.
Make sure to visit the NWJ! stand during the closing fiesta on Sunday, May 26, in Lazaro Cardenas Park. We'll have our world famous tamales available. If you haven't tried them yet, don't miss them. If you love tamales, you'll LOVE our tamales. See you on Sunday after the Parade!
No Way José! is on the south side of downtown at 5 de Febrero 260, just over the Vallarta street bridge on your left heading south from the Malecón. Open Tuesday through Sunday from 4:00 pm to 11:30 pm. Reservations are suggested and are available by calling (322) 223-2853 or by emailing No Way Jose.
Abrazos - Julie, José Alfredo and the entire NWJ! Team
