Jake Harris

Get your best Selena impressions and costumes ready. Restaurant conglomerate El Chile Group has announced a bevy of holiday specials to help celebrate the month of December, but one stands out among the rest: El Chilito is going to host a Selena-themed brunch.

The Bidi Bidi Brunch Brunch series starts on Dec. 10 and will continue on select Sundays from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at the restaurant’s Burnet Road location. Other dates include Jan. 14 and Feb. 12.  

In addition to the specials, which include $1 mimosas, $3 brunch tacos and $5 pairs of tamales, there will be a Washing Machine dance contest at 1 p.m., and a Selena costume contest at 1:30 p.m. during every brunch. Guests are encouraged to wear their favorite Selena-themed outfits and to bring cash.

Local Latinx artists and business owners will be there, too: Local artist Federico Archuleta will be selling prints of his Graffiti Western work, and local Latina-owned clothing company Hola Dear Deer will sell their favorite Selena-themed T-shirts.

Other El Chile Group restaurants are offering other drink and food specials, too, including gift card offers. Check those out at the group’s website.
