Cinco de Mayo is on a Saturday this year, which means one thing: This party is gonna get muuuuuy LOCO! Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s unexpected victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 and this year marks the 150-year anniversary. But here in the states it’s really just an excuse to drink and eat with wild abandon. So here’s to Cinco de Mayo, amigos! Find out where to toast our Mexican brothers and sisters in Los Angeles and beyond.
