Fourth of July is right around the corner, and for many of us in El Paso, and especially those in Segundo Barrio, that means one thing: Jalisco Cafe's annual Books & Raspas giveaway!

As if this Segundo Barrio restaurant wasn't iconic enough, this Fourth of July they will be hosting their seventh annual "Jalisco Cafe Segundo Barrio Books & Raspas Giveaway"! Jalisco Cafe has partnered up with Books Santo Nino, El Paso's non-profit book society who will be providing free books for the entire family; books for mom & dad, children, fiction & non fiction, autobiographies, history, fantasy, you name it. Gently used books ready for your reading pleasure.

As you can see this is the seventh annual Books & Raspas giveaway they have done- well, with the exception of 2020 because of the pandemic. But I cannot recommend this place enough.

Jalisco Cafe is a great place to support local as they give back to the community every chance they can from this free Books & Raspas event perfect for the entire family to giving out free meals on Thanksgiving, they show exactly what it means to be El Paso Strong.
