¡Ole! Thursday is Cinco de Mayo, the Mexican holiday commemorating the win over the French Army at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. The holiday is meant to celebrate Mexican culture with parades, food and music.
Check my column on Thursday for details, but here’s what’s going on:
Sierra Madre Saloon
– basically, the place to be. Live bands Thurs., Fri. and Sat. night
outside on the Madre’s new patio. Mariachi band inside. Free food
during Happy Hour (5-7 p.m.), plus clowns, face-painting etc. for the
kids. A family friendly event. Er, wait, there are also Cuervo tastings from 6-9 p.m.
El Rodeo – No mariachi at the Rte. 22 location on Thursday (though they have them tonight). Check the other locations for entertainment. The restaurant will have a raffle, one ticket per table, to win things like t-shirts, hats and coupons.
