aah rodeo web

Us! This two-day rodeo starts on April 26th but it wouldn’t be a party without a kick off celebration at the Auburn Alehouse. The city of Auburn has been hosting a rodeo for over 50 years and despite the small delay, this year will be one to remember..

Cash Prophets
Starting at 7pm Friday April 25th gates will open to the official pre-party located in the parking lot to the left of the Alehouse. For a $10 cover, people 18 years old and over (no cover for those under 18), can enjoy another entertaining and down right rocking performance from the Cash Prophets. For those of you who never saw the legend perform in person, this is the best Johnny Cash cover band we’ve had the pleasure of hearing. Partygoers can also get in the rodeo spirit by testing your skills on the mechanical bull for only $10 a ride or give yourself a second chance with two rides for only $15. Find out how you stack up to your favorite rodeo hero.

Food will be plenty and drinks will be pouring freely. Our smoker will be working all day to prepare a delicious down-home BBQ sure to make your mouth water. The menu will include Tri-Tip, pulled pork sandwiches, wild wings and more. A bar will be set up with beer, wine, and limited cocktails. Drink tickets can be purchased for $4 each once inside.

“We are excited to host the official Pre-rodeo party, so round up your friends and come join us for a buckin’ good time!” said owner Lisa Ford when asked about the upcoming event.

This is definitely a party you shouldn’t miss so write it down on your calendars and we’ll see you there rain or shine!

 Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in classic style

Cinco de Mayo is upon us again. Celebrated in Mexico and the United States, this holiday commemorates May 5, 1882 when the Mexican army beat 6,000 French troops who invaded the city of Puebla. Old Town Auburn brings a bit of Mexico to the city of Auburn by hosting an event from 5-9pm in the streets of Old Town.

After you have watched the Folklorico Dancer Troupe from Sacramento and the kids have had their pony rides, stop by the salsa making contest to see our very own Carlos Baez and to taste his homemade salsa that is sure to beat out the competition! You might even get to meet our Spicy Senorita, Katie, who will make a guest appearance Carmen Miranda style behind our table!

Here at the Alehouse we wanted to celebrate all day so come in anytime from 11am to 9pm for our special Cinco de Mayo menu. This authentic menu will include Estella’s famous enchiladas, Mole Pablano Skirt Steak, and Tres Leches Cake for dessert. We will have great drink specials and Kegaritas all day. Feel free to dress up and show your spirit while we celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Salud!
