Are you ready for Cinco de Mayo?
A great excuse to get smashed on tequila on a Tuesday night, Cinco de Mayo sees celebrations all around town.
Whether you want to stay classy with a Margarita in hand while playing some Bingo (that’s pretty classy for Cinco de Drinko), dance salsa with a live music band, or just find the cheapest booze deal there is, it’s all about personal preference. I’m just here to help point you in the right direction.
