Comcast Xfinity representatives will treat customers at Luis's Taqueria on Thursday.

Anyone with an appetite heading into downtown Woodburn on Cinco de Mayo, Thursday, might want to consider stopping by Luis's Taqueria.

Area Comcast Senior Marketing Manager Lisa Burdette said Xfinity representatives will be on hand at the taqueria and will even be up for picking a hefty part of your lunch or dinner tab.PMG PHOTO: JUSTIN MUCH - Comcast cable, which operates under the Xfinity brand name, secured a franchise agreement with Woodburn and may have cable TV, internet and phone services available as soon as early next fall.

Comcast is new to the Woodburn area, and company sources said it is about halfway through its telecommunications infrastructure installments and continues to work on getting the entire city available for service. Meanwhile, Burdette said the company is eager to get information out to Woodburn residents, so the representatives will be hanging out at Luis's from noon to 7 p.m., and as an enticement, they will pay part of the tab for diners.

Anyone coming between noon at 3 p.m. also can speak with someone about service, find out if it's available in their neighborhood and set up a time to get hooked up if it is.

"With our 'Xfinity picks up the tab' program, we partner with a local restaurant or business, and we are doing this at Luis's Taqueria on Cinco de Mayo," Burdette said. "We will be there to talk about our services, and we will help you pay your tab.

"I love this (tab) program. A lot of people are able to come in, stop by and leave with their money still in their pocket," she added.

The taqueria is located at 523 N. Front St. Anyone with questions can email Burdette at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

• More Cinco de Mayo activities: Woodburn Mayor Eric Swenson said Woodburn Downtown Association and the Oregon Food Bank will host the same kind of Cinco de Mayo Chemeketa Community College has in the past, but it will be held in the Downtown Plaza just this year.

The festivities will continue into Mother's Day weekend from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, May 7-8. There will be local vendors, live music and folkloric dancing in the plaza.

The food bank is participating in the weekend festivities with the goal of providing paperwork assistance for the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, and furnishing a musical festival for children.
