No Way José!'s favorite fiestas of the year welcomes the hottest, newest guitar duo on the Vallarta music scene. Welcome Zoe & Leon from 8:00 to 10:00 pm on Saturday, May 19 on the No Way José! Terrace to celebrate José Alfredo's birthday. Vallarta is no stranger to Eduardo Leon, one of the best guitarists to grace the stage of some of the most popular venues throughout the Bay of Banderas. Joining his musical talents with the singer, composer, guitarist Zoe Wood, this duo creates an acoustical guitar experience you will be putting on your "can't miss" list. No Way José! welcomes Zoe & Leon to the No Way José! family of friends!

No Way José!, one of the Zona Romantica's favorite award-winning Mexican contemporary restaurants, rolls out another creatively delicious Restaurant Week menu as the culinary star of the evening. From Bone Marrow tacos to the Mexican delicacy Mixiote, you will have new menu items to add to the classic NWJ! favorites of Chiles en Nogada and Pollo Xochimilco.

The legendary No Way José! fiestas generate such great energy that we channel all that love into giving back to the Vallarta community. Cheryl's Shoebox, a community volunteer organization, dedicates their efforts to increase the quality of education in disadvantages schools throughout Banderas Bay by providing families with new shoes and school materials for children, as well as supplies for teachers. So please bring a pair (or two!) of new children's shoes for ages 6-12, socks, school supplies such as notebooks, pencils, and markers to the fiesta. It feels so great to have a great time and help others at the same time!

Please join us on Saturday, May 19 to eat, drink, laugh, sing, dance and be happy!

Space is limited and the Terrace fills up fast, so click here to reserve your space.
