Cinco de Mayo: The Parties, The Chihuahua Races, The Lime Shortages

Read more

We all know that Cinco de Mayo is just an arbitrary holiday gringos picked to allow them to throw on their Party-City-bought sombreros and appropriate Mexican culture without too many consequences. But after all the debaucherous drinking and eating we can at least rest assured that Montezuma’s Revenge will be afflicting a fair share of sombreBros…..just kidding. Sort of.

Anyway, we can’t hate too much because we still love tequila and if there’s a day where margaritas are $2 and we can eat as many tacos as we want, count us in. Even if there is a crazy cartel-related lime shortage. 🙁

Since Cinco falls on a Monday this year, that means three days of sloppy decision-making. If you’re looking for a history lesson on what Cinco de Mayo is really about, we recommend this one. But if you DGAF and just want to party, check out our picks — click your city below to see what’s happening this weekend!
