Unless you’ve taken a class on Mexican history, you know that Cinco de Mayo also knows as The Battle of Puebla , isn’t a holiday that is necessarily celebrated in Mexico. But here in the ‘land of free and home of the brave’, we’ve adopted this ‘holiday’ and magnified it two fold. Yes, we Americans love any holiday that involves good food and good times.
There is a small lapse in the universe where you can get to break out into a zarape , and adopt a Spanish name grab a street taco or two ( okay…a dozen) . Or maybe you want to go into a little classier route and enjoy a glass of vino with some friends. Not to worry! The Mile High City has you covered. Not to mention in addition to having fun, you are also helping our local surrounding community. Feel free to give yourself a pat on the back. Be safe, and have fun this weekend, Denver!
