Cinco de Mayo

Just mention the word Mexican and we are there for it. Mexican food, Mexican beer, Mexican tequila, give us everything RIGHT NOW (please).

Which is why it’s exciting that Cinco de Mayo has come around again and we get to spend the whole weekend fiesta-ing. In case you’ve never indulged in the celebrations, Cinco de Mayo is a festival commemorating the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. Fine by us.

Here’s are five places you can get involved in the festivities on Sunday May 5th.

It’s a Mexi-fiesta at Montezuma’s in Surfers Paradise with buy one get one free margaritas on Sunday May 5th. Fill up your tummy with some of the tastiest eats around and that’s one Sunday you won’t soon forget. Feast time! You’ll need to book this one.
