our story

The inspiration for Casa del Xoloitzcuintle ("Xolo" for short) came from our experience at CECUT (Centro Cultural de Tijuana) and Casa de Cultura, places that serve as a multi-purpose arts centers; from dance, music, and painting — to film and architecture.


Xoloitzcuintle is the national dog of Mexico, where our founding members are from. Xoloitzcuintle is a word in Nahuatl, which brings the word itzcuīntli, meaning “dog” together with Xolotl, the Aztec god of fire and lightning. 


Casa del Xolo is a mutual aid organization created alongside the vegan cafe, Lazy Cow Bakery. We host free and vegan community dinners every Wednesday at 7pm inside the bakery. We run a free food pantry, fridge and public microwave from 9-6pm, Wed-Saturday and Sunday 9-4pm. Donations for the pantry are accepted during these hours. Please stop by!


We take bookings for private events through our email,
