There's even more to celebrate at San Francisco's Cinco de Mayo bash in Dolores Park this weekend now that the first round of renovations are done and visitors can stretch out in fantastic spring weather. Yoshi's is also celebrating the holiday with the Mexican Institute of Sound, while Cinco De Ill keeps the party going late with DJ Icey and The Foundation turns it up with KMEL DJ Chuy Gomez and Papalote record slayer DJ Mr. E. At 111 Minna, Cinco de Mayo 2012 hosts the "most upscale Latin and international celebration" party with two dance floors, three DJ and mariachi performances. Beyond the fiestas, Flying Lotus is back behind the decks for the latest edition of Low End Theory and the first Sunset Boat Party of the season sets sail Sunday. Urban Air Market boasts 150 independent clothing, accessories, jewelry and home décor designers and Vagabond Indie Craft Fair brings a pop-up bohemian marketplace to Urban Bazaar.
