    ¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo! As I said yesterday, I love Cinco de Mayo, and really, any other excuse to enjoy a good margarita. Today I feel like you can drink them with reckless abandon.
    While the there are countless events going on around town to celebrate the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla, I think this one has a little bit of everything.

    They will have street food, tequila, mariachis, my favorite beer (Dos Equis), as well as plenty of live music. This is a block party like no other and there will be fun and entertainment for the entire family.

    Cost: Free

    Time: 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.

    A close second today was the party that Santa Rita is hosting. It’s one of my favorite Mexican spots in town.

    Happy Cinco de Mayo! Now go drink muchos cervezas y margaritas!
