Holiday or something this weekend?

El Centro was really quiet last night around Cena time, and several restaurants that are always open were closed. Then found Carmelita's is closed this morning... Google was not helpful. Is there a local holiday or something this weekend we don't know about?

Nope. Not until next weekend when we celebrate the 112th anniversary of the Revolución Mexicana. Día de la Revolución Mexicana is technically on Sunday, November 20, but the following Monday will be an official holiday, so we should expect a few extra busloads of tourists.

Thanks. Tricky trying to discern between normal ebbs and flows, coincidences, and events/holidays we are not aware of. Part of assimilating that just takes time. And help from those more knowledgeable.

For a lot of tourist-oriented businesses it's still off season and they're either enjoying their own vacations (last chance for several months) or getting ready for the start of our busy season.
