Cinco de Mayo Is Sunday: Ten Places to Party in South Florida
You better get ready. This Sunday is, like, the second biggest drinking holiday in the world--well, we don't actually know if that's true, but it should be.
The time has come to release that inner Mexican and have a good time. We have the list of ten places to celebrate in Broward and Palm Beach Counties, after the jump.
The Mizer Park restaurant is turning the center into a street fest with a street taco stand, outdoor bars, photo booth, mariachi band, and more. The party begins at 10 am. Call (561) 300-3530, or visit unclejulios.com.
As with any holiday involving tequila, all Rocco's Tacos locations are hosting some serious tequila drinking parties with drink specials, free tequila pourings, raffles, and live entertainment. The drinking is taking place from noon until whenever. Click here for website.
The waterside spot will be offering a Mexican inspired menu to help celebrate the day, as well as a number of drink specials including $5 margaritas and $8 Corona Rita's. Call (561) 665-8484, or visit the website here.
The downtown Fort Lauderdale bar wants to make sure you can get in as much celebrating as possible; it's starting off the festivities at Midnight with a best mustache contest and $3 Herradura shots, margaritas, and tequila poppers. The party continues on Sunday with 3 for 1 drinks. Click here for website.
Cinco on Second
Tarpon Bend and T-Mex Cantina are teaming up to host an epic fiesta. From 2 to 5 pm, the bars will host a live salsa band. A DJ comes on from 6 to 10pm. In addition to food and drink specials, the rowdy neighbors will feature shot girls, donkey rides, games and giveaways, and a taco eating contest. Check the facebook page here.
Asian and Mexican might sound like an odd combination, but tequila crosses many bridges. The Mizner Park restaurant and bar is offering $5 Partida Margaritas all day long. Click here for more info.
The Deerfield Beach spot is closing down normal operations to host a massive Mexican party with live music in the parking lot. The regular menu will be cut down to eight menu items, a roast pig being one. Visit the website here.
Looking for a Mexican style street party--okay, block party? Tequila Sunrise has got you covered. From 11:30 am to 11:45 pm, the restaurant is hosting a mariachi band and giving away freebies. And obviously serving tequila. Check the website here.
If you're looking to impress a Corona girl--or two--this Hollywood beach-side bar is hosting a taco eating contest with awards given out to the
biggest fastest eaters. For those who are too scared: the restaurant is featuring a $14.95 barbecue platter, $5 margaritas, and $3.50 Coronas. Visit the website here.
