What a great day to celebrate the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France in the Franco-Mexican war! So exciting! Viva Mexico, right?
Lol no, who are we kidding? This is America, not Mexico, and any excuse to drink is all we need! It’s basically Taco Tuesday (Taco Thursday???) for the second time this week. So let’s get the margaritas flowin’ because happy hour is 24 hours today!
Consider it a blessing that the best drinking day of the year falls on a Thursday, a pre-Friday celebration (though, it probably wouldn’t have made a difference had Cinco de Mayo fallen on a Monday). Cinco de Mayo is the best excuse to party, if you ask us. And since this holiday is bigger in the U.S. than in Mexico, many of our fave Mexican food restaurants are gifting us with some of the best specials for all our taco and margy needs.
Some classics: Stop by Don Jose’s for $4 16 oz beers and $5 margaritas! El Torito has been geared up all week with specials and today all Cadillac margaritas are $2 off from 4 p.m. to closing.
Also, don’t miss out on any sales going on at some of your favorite stores!
Have a happy and fashionable Cinco de Mayo #FTcrew !!
