Cinco de Mayo is upon us! Here’s your annual reminder that it’s a celebration of the Mexican army over the French empire (not Mexican Independence Day). While the day has a lesser meaning in Mexico, in America it has evolved to celebrate American-Mexican unity. Here in Montgomery, Cinco de Mayo is a wonderful time for us to try new food and celebrate the burgeoning immigrant population in this town.
Here’s a list of six ways for you to enjoy the day this year:
Celebrate early at Pine Bar
The Montgomery County Bar Association Women’s Section will be celebrating at Pine Bar on Thursday, May 2nd with margaritas and appetizers.
Listen to mariachi at La Zona Rosa
What’s a Mexican celebration without mariachi music? Head over to La Zona Rosa for their first-ever Sunday opening.
Be a Pour Star
Has anyone been to Pour Stars yet? I haven’t had the privilege but I hear they’ll have drink and food specials all night for Cinco de Mayo.
