Cinco de Mayo Festivities

Happy Cinco de Mayo! If you are looking to get festive for the Mexican holiday, there are plenty of places to get your margarita fix around the Denver area.

For the strongest margaritas in the state of Colorado, make sure to check out the Rio (1525 Blake Street). Just a heads up, they are so strong that they limit your intake to three ritas.

Right around the corner from the Rio is Croc’s (1630 Market Street) where they are featuring $1 tacos as well as $1.99 margaritas and $2 Dos XX starting at 4PM. Once you’ve gotten your margarita on, karaoke begins at 8PM and runs until the place shuts down for the night.

The Drink and The Mix (15th between Larimer and Market) are throwing a Cinco De Drinko bash starting at 5PM. They will be featuring free Mexican appetizers, free Cabo Wabo tequila from 9:30-10:30PM, $5 Pink Taco Shots all night long, as well as DJ Bert and DJ Tru mixing beats throughout the evening.

If you are in the mood for some authentic Mexican cuisine with your margaritas, head to Benny’s (301 E. 7th Avenue). They were voted the best Mexican restaurant by 5280 for three years in a row. They feature 15 different kinds of margaritas on the menu, served either frozen or on the rocks. What makes Benny's so great is the fact that it is locally owned and operated.

If you live in the Highlands neighborhood make sure to check out El Camino (3628 W. 32nd Ave.). Their party starts today with various drink and food specials. The party continues through Saturday, May 8th where they will have a margarita pavilion complete with Mexican BBQ, a fire breather, DJs and a flamenco band.

    Why do Mexican kid's walk around school acting like they own the place? Because their dad's built it and their mom's clean it.
