First Take

KUVO Arts District correspondent Carrie Saldo's cultural tip for the weekend is Cinco de Mayo at Denver's Civic Center Plaza, in it's 29th year.  

More than an excuse for a party, the day is rooted in an actual historic event (The Battle of Puebla) .  It's become a cultural marker and rite of spring for the Chicano Western U.S.

Bay-area political activist Steve Phillips poured his personal experience winning a school board seat in San Francisco, plus his political action committee work for the Obama campaigns into a demographic treatise that offers some interesting lessons for any 21st century politico.  He previewed his visit to Denver this week with a short chat on "First Take with Lando and Chavis."
