Cinco de Mayo is a celebration in honor of the Battle of Puebla, when Mexican soldiers defeated Napoleons army. What did you just read? Blah blah blah bottle of patron? Can't say I didn't try to educate…
Where can you get Cinco de Mayo specials in this city?! That's what you want to know, right? I think it's safe to assume practically every bar (with the exception of certain Irish pubs) will have some sort of tequila/margarita special, but here's a few I found for you anyway:
El Rio Grande: This place has some of the strongest margaritas I've ever tried. They will be having plenty of promotions tonight, and I hear they make premium tequila margaritas tableside for $14.
Caliente Cab Co.: Happy Hour is from 4-7 pm and they offer 1/2 price frozen margaritas.
Johnny Utahs: Bullriding, $5 margaritas and 2 for 1 quesadillas. That sounds like a recipe for projectile vomiting. Oh and best sombrero wins $200. (Wtf?)
Tortilla Flats: they have "nothing for Cinco de Mayo". How weird is that?
Rodeo Bar & Grill: Happy Hour is from 4-9 pm and this place is known for their strong pitchers of margaritas in unique flavors like lime, melon and prickly pear. Oooo!
Agave: Happy Hour is from 4-7 with 1/2 off house margaritas and they will be making some specialty cocktails for Cinco de Mayo as well. Last time I was there I had a passionfruit margarita. Nums.
Rosa Mexicano: I actually have no clue what they're doing for Cinco de Mayo, I just really like their guacamole so I'm putting them on here. I'm sure they'll have specials going on though.
Stone Street Tavern: I didn't get much detail other than their Cinco de Mayo happy hour is sponsored by Patron and Corona. And in some ways, I think that's all you need to know..?
Katwalk: Happy hour is from 3-8 pm with $6 watermelon margaritas, $6 Mexitinis (Mexican martinis I imagine) and $3 tequila shots.
SideBar: Happy Hour from 5-9 pm with $5 micheladas (love those), $5 tequila shots and $5 margaritas.
There you go. I think that's good enough. It's also on a Thursday night, so no matter where you go you're bound to get some good HH action. Click here though if you need more…
