In New Orleans, we don’t need a reason to party, but Cinco de Mayo is a fun reason to have. This Friday, Mexican restaurants across the city of New Orleans will host festivities to commemorate such a significant moment in Mexican history. If you’ve been trying to figure out where to party, here are my top 5 picks:
Mizado Latin Kitchen, 5080 Pontchartrain Blvd. | 2-6P
Food + drink specials: $3 Frozen Margaritas, $3 Mexican Import Bottles, $4 Margaritas on the Rocks, $5 Wines by the glass. Half-off salsa, guacamole, tamales and appetizers.
Casa Borrega, 1719 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.
DJ Sin Promesas kicks off the celebration at 4:30P + a performance from Latin crooner Fredy Omar and his band at 7:30P.
Taco Bikes & Traps, Various Locations | 3-11P
Get Up and Ride NOLA’s Cycle With A Twist: Cinco de Mayo edition will be biking throughout downtown New Orleans.
