Cinco de Mayo is the day Mexicans use to commemorate an unlikely victory of a battle of the Mexican army against the French at the Battle of Puebla. It is a day where many people, whether they identify as Mexican or not, pause to have a Mexican meal or head out for a margarita after work. Many bars, restaurants and other businesses will be holding deals or specials surrounding the holiday. Are any of your favorite places offering a Cinco de Mayo special?
