The spring day filled with celebrations is almost upon us. Cinco de Mayo, the Fifth of May celebrates the Mexican victory over the French army in 1862. An unlikely defeat, the win was a huge boost to Mexican morale, becoming a symbol of unity and pride. The best way to celebrate is to grab your friends and some tequila at these hotspots around town.
