Cinco de Mayo 2013 is Here

senoritasSunday is Cinco de Mayo 2013 and if you’re looking for a place to celebrate Mexican pride–or good Mexican food and beer–there are several options in and around Baristaville.

Senorita’s in Bloomfield is celebrating the “Day of the Battle of Puebla” with outdoor festivities, including a beer garden, taco bar, DJ, prizes and giveaways. There will also be an outdoor deck and three full bars inside, with $3.00 beer specials and $6.00 margarita specials.

A new “upstairs buffet” will feature the restaurants favorite dishes, a salad bar and appetizers. Cost is $18 per person. The celebration begins tonight and lasts throughout the weekend.

Tinga Taqueria in Montclair will be celebrating the holiday with fiesta frozen drink specials (bring your own tequila), dining specials and prizes, starting on Wednesday and continuing through the weekend.

Chevy’s in Clifton will be throwing its annual Cinco de Mayo party on Sunday, an event the restaurant chain boasts is “the longest running and largest outdoor Cinco de Mayo celebration in New Jersey.” The party features live music, food stalls and lots of people. To get an idea of what the party is like, check out the YouTube video from last year’s party.

Or, if crowds aren’t your thing, relax on the back porch with one of Holly’s margarita-like drinks, whip up some guacamole (avocados, lime, salt, cilantro, garlic. Period.), listen to some Los Lobos and dream of Cozumel.

  1. Or you can actually have some real Mexican food, at Taqueria Autentica in Bloomfield.

  2. I’ll go to Naco to get a taco. It’s conveniently located just across the border from Bisbee, AZ, home of the old Phelps Dodge pit, a great place for Turquoise hunting, if you don’t mind risking death or arrest.

  3. I’ll be in Washington, where I’ll dine at the little-known but fantastic nonetheless “El Bupkis”.

    I read a great review last week in my copy of The Dsily Fodder.

  4. Help me. I’m down below “The Bridge” (the Driscoll Bridge.) It seems like the only places down here are seafood restaurants. No Cinco de Mayo for me this year.

  5. I’ll be enjoying a Margarita with my 91yr old Dad at his Assisted Living Facility and then head over to the Cloverleaf for a Dos Equis.

    Anyone remember the show in the late 50s early 60s called ‘The Cisco Kid”..”Hey Pancho, Hey Cisco”.

  6. “The Cisco Kid” was originally a series of low budget westerns during the 30’s and 40’s, Ice, starring Cesar Romero.

    And before that an O’Henry story.
