Cinco de Mayo is yet another great excuse to take some time to celebrate, relax, enjoy and Love where you live!
"Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla... The date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War.... Contrary to widespread popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day—the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico—which is actually celebrated on September 16." From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Consider the May 5 holiday, coupled with warmer weather, as the perfect opportunity to explore traditional Mexican dishes. According to the Tacoma News Tribune, " The Loose Wheel Bar & Grill will have 75 cent tacos, $1 off taco salads and $1 off top shelf tequilas starting at 8 p.m. Also, they’ll offer $4 margaritas and Mexican beer discounts.
