Philly Hub: Cinco de Mayo Interlude

Courtesy of mexicanhammock.com 
If I had a Mexican poncho, I would be wearing it today....Since I don't, I'm making myself feel Mexican and celebrating their independence day by consuming their national cuisine all day. Here's my pick from the May 2-9 Philly to-do list (read at http://phillyhub.blogspot.com/2011/05/philadelphia-greatest-city-never-sold.html ) :

Thursday, May 5: It's Cinco de Mayo - go out, get a marg and have some enchiladas. If you're in the burbs attend Tequila University at Verdad then stay for complimentary tequila tastings and $5 margs - or just come at 10 p.m. for the margaritas and $2 tacos. If you are celebratin' philly-style, try Distrito and get there early. From 3.p.m. on, the first floor will be serving up up $5 margarita and some discounted cheap Mexican bites. Runner-up pick for Cinco in Philly:Xochityl: Mexican Street Food under $10. If restaurant fare isn't for you, skip the foreplay and just get slammed at this Cinco de Mayo bar crawl 

Here's Cinco de Mayo drink and cuisine specials around and outside philly:
