This is such great news! El Rio holds a special place in so many peoples’ hearts.

It’s literally one of my favorite bars ever and I have so many wonderful memories from there. Not just for the epic election night parties, fabulous backyard discos, goofy karaoke, and grungy bands. It’s also where my fiancé and I had our first kiss and where we plan on having our wedding party. So this is great news indeed!

So as you can imagine, I was super excited to see this on their Facebook page:

Yup straight from the horse’s mouth. Things kick off at 4pm.

El Rio has taken this significant down time to update a few things, including a lovely new mural by J. Manuel Carmona and Simon Malvae on the front of the building, and some sweet new merch were part of the proceeds go to support local organizations doing good work in the community.

So that’s your dose of good news for the day. Make sure to get out there and support El Rio once they open back up. I know they’ve missed you almost as much as you’ve missed them.
