On the busiest shopping weekend of the year, American Express is reminding us to shop and dine locally with its Small Business Saturday campaign.
While you’re out shopping the sales at Del Mar Highlands Town Center, take a break and join us at Casa Sol y Mar to sip a frosty margarita and try one of our new healthy dining creations such as Turkey Picadillo Enchiladas – turkey enchiladas topped with salsa verde and queso cotija, served with black beans and jicama slaw (560 calories). When you eat at Casa Sol y Mar, know that you’re supporting a local business in your community.
Small Business Saturday is a national campaign that rewards American Express users when they shop and dine at local businesses, making a contribution back to their communities. AmEx users who have pre-registered their card, will receive a credit back on their statement up to $30. For more info about the campaign, visit: www.smallbusinesssaturday.com.
Celebrate at Casa Sol y Mar or let us cater your at-home fiesta.
Diane Powers was the first to bring a Cinco de Mayo celebration to Old Town in 1983, and today she continues her dedication to the Mexican culture with lively celebrations at her family of restaurants.
Join us at Casa Sol y Mar May 3-5 for several days of strolling mariachis and Folkloric dancers, tasty food, and drink specials! Festive entertainment Saturday, Sunday and Monday will include Ballet Folklorico at 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., and mariachis from 1-9 p.m.
On Monday during happy hour from 4-7 p.m. in the Cantina, guests will enjoy promotional giveaways from Dos Equis, Pacífico and Negra Modelo, as well as house margaritas for $3.95. Featured food and drink specials include the Cincorita Margarita – a combination of strawberry, lemon-lime and kiwi, in layers of green, white and red, paying homage to the Mexican flag – and Enchiladas Banderas – a savory sampling of chicken, cheese and beef enchiladas served with three different sauces – verde, blanca and rojas (green, white and red).
Join us for a great weekend of delicious Mexican food, drinks and entertainment. Or, if you’re planning a party at home, let us cater. We promise to “WOW” your guests with tasty antojitos (appetizers), flavorful entrees and sides, fresh tortillas, and sweet postres (desserts).

If you have visited any of our Bazaar del Mundo Restaurants, you know we love lively mariachi music, a style rich in Mexican history and culture!
First appearing in the nineteenth century in the Mexican state of Jalisco, mariachi groups are known for performing at religious celebrations, plazas, big family events and restaurants – but their appearance has changed over the years. Early mariachi groups consisted only of string instruments, including guitars and harps, but as jazz music became more popular, the trumpet was introduced – now a beloved staple of the band.
Spreading their culture to the U.S., the first appearance of mariachi groups flourished in California. Now the groups are known all over for spicing up celebrations!
Guests love mariachis’ traditional clothing. Commonly called a charro suit, this outfit usually includes waste-length jackets, pants or skirts, and embroidery with leather designs or silver buttons.
If you haven’t had a chance to experience mariachi music, it’s time you visited one of our restaurants for an unforgettable fiesta! We invite you to celebrate your special occasion with us or join us for dinner and drinks, where you’ll be transported south of the border by our strolling mariachis.
