Good thing Cinco de Mayo is on a Friday this year. Now we feel less guilty calling in “sick” to work.
Know Some History
Don’t get caught not knowing what Cinco de Mayo even means. We took the hard work out of an extra Google search for you.
- Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day. That day falls on September 16th.
- Mexicans actually call it “El Día de la Batalla de Puebla” and not Cinco de Mayo.
- Roughly 81 million pounds of avocados consumed on Cinco de Mayo every year. That’s a lot of extra guac.You know what else has 81 million pounds of avocado on it? George’s Strip Club Sandwich, piled high with juicy chicken, crispy bacon and fresh veggies on sourdough bread. Order one at the Sapphire Pool grill during your Friday day rager..
Margaritas and Cinco de Mayo go together like babes and bikinis. Real, good agave tequila demands slow sips to savor the flavors — so when mixing margs, go for the cheap stuff.
Eat Some Bomb Mexican Food
Heading to Sin City for Cinco de Mayo weekend? Las Vegas has some amazing, authentic Mexican restaurants to hit up on Cinco de Mayo. We’re partial to the life-changing chips and salsa from El Dorado Cantina, but Bonito Michoacán, Baja Mar, Rivas and Tacos El Gordo are a few more local favorites. Even if it’s just the Roberto’s drive-thru, it still counts. Go nuts.
Decorate — or Just Get Dressed Up
Get into the spirit with some red, white and green decor. Mexico flags are a colorful, easy way to get any house — or party — into the spirit. Hang some flags, grab a maraca or two and hang a piñata to accentuate the margs and madness.
If you don’t feel like decking out the casa, throw on some florals and tassels before heading out to your Cinco de Mayo bashes.
Listen to a Cinco de Mayo Playlist
Now is the time to blast “Gasolina” on repeat for four days straight. Fire up Spotify or Apple Music and play the best of Daddy Yankee, Shakira, Don Omar, Luis Fonsi and all the Latin pop faves. Don’t forget to play some classics — Suavemente, anyone?
There’s one party in Vegas that’s sure to play said bangers. Savanna Santos is celebrating her FHM cover debut at Sapphire Pool on May 5, and fire beats will be dropped by DJ PDot all Friday afternoon.
