Tough times for Mexico these days, so perhaps it is a welcome respite that today marks Cinco de Mayo, the defeat of French forces by Mexican troops on May 5, 1862, at “The Battle of Puebla.” There will be several Cinco de Mayo parties around town tonight. Here are three of them:
- The Saddle Cantina (map), which holds it monthly Cinco de Drinko party featuring half-price drinks all day and night, followed by a similar deal at “The Hair of the Dog” party at sibling establishment The Rickshaw on May 6.
- Pyro (map), best known for its pizza, which will offer drink specials.
- Luga’s Villa (map), which offers buckets of six Coronas for RMB98.
