Cinco de Mayo
Looking to go loco this Cinco de Mayo? Head down to Vamos for their deck dance party
featuring margarita stations and a taco bar (they had over 1,000 people at last year’s fiesta). If you want a party that's more Cabo than Tijuana, join like-minded luxury-seekers at Hudson Terrace for their rooftop party
with a live DJ and authentic taco stand. Or burn the candle at both ends by booking a table at Teqa, where you can have dinner before enjoying their late-night fiesta with guest host Mario Lopez
and a DJ spinning hot Latin beats.
Whether you only drink on special occasions or find every occasion special, there are plenty of places to grab a drink (or 10) this Cinco de Mayo. Pre-gamers and freebie fans can head over to the Plaza Food Hall by Todd English and suck down a complimentary shot
of Patron. Keep the good times rolling at MexiQ Kitchen, featuring $10 margaritas
in a myriad of flavors (passion fruit jalapeno, guava chipotle mescal, watermelon, etc.) accompanied by a live mariachi band. And sexy is always in style at Los Feliz, where they'll be debuting Dita Von Teese's new cocktail, Cointreau MargaDita
...but please leave the stripping to the professionals.
Tequila isn't the only Mexican import worth toasting, so grab some friends (or family) and head out to Ofrenda, where they're celebrating street-fair style
with food stations, live music, Mexican wrestlers, tequila shots, dancing and more. If weeknight binging is not an option, head to the Bell House on Sunday for their Guactacular
, and taste twenty different kinds of Mexico’s favorite dip.
