Cinco de Mayo is nearly upon us! We found a collection of events that we thought sounded especially fun and tasty. The events happen on May 5 unless we say otherwise.
Cheluna Brewing Company gets us in the Cinco de Mayo mood on May 4 with a free salsa lesson with Sisy Ayala. Then on May 5, enjoy Mariachi Los Carrecaminos. Have a glass of their Coco-Xoco Porter while you’re there. It’s infused with cacao, vanilla and toasted coconut!
Copper Kettle Brewing Company will be serving their Mexican Chocolate Stout in their tasting room from 5-7pm.
Cook Street will teach you how to let everyday be Cinco de Mayo with their class, Street Food Series: Mexico – Celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Space is limited. Learn, do and eat
Cochino Taco is celebrating May 5 and 6 with some food and drink specials and the opportunity to win a helicopter tour of Denver. Enter the raffle May 1-6. You have to be present at the Cinco Hangover Brunch on Sunday, May 7 at 2pm to win. They’ll be serving $5 Arta de Tequila Bloody Marias garnished with chicharrones. You can’t go wrong with any of the brunch items (just read our recent review as proof) or have two crunch tacos served in a little taco truck for $5 – too cute. No, really, this might be too cute.
Que Bueno Suerte! is celebrating Cinco de Mayo the way it should be done – with tacos, tequila, and beer. The Platt Park restaurant, which serves upscale, eclectic and modern Mexican cuisine, is offering a beer and a shot special for $5 and two tacos for $5.
Guess what? Bonus, five more!
SOL Mexican Cocina is celebrating with an all-day fiesta featuring live music by Dysfunction Junction, food and drink specials including special prices on margaritas, sangria, tequila infusion shots and beer as well as a taco station in the bar area and food specials. As an added bonus, SOL is offering FREE validated parking in the Columbine parking garage behind the restaurant from 5 p.m. to close.
On The Border will offer the following specials: 14-ounce frozen Cinco’Ritas for just $5, $10 Top-Shelf Margarita made with 1800 Mercedes tequila plus other giveaways and specials.
The Blue Bonnet will be offering patio-fun at its best Friday and Saturday when they extend the bar onto their spacious patio. Discount specials will be running from open to close both days, plus happy hour food deals running 3-6pm.
It doesn’t have to all be margarita’s, you know!
Olive & Finch is serving the tequila with fresh grapefruit juice, with fresh lime juice, topped with bubbles.
5280 Burger Bar is serving the Mucho Take it Easy with Mile High Cuidad tequila with fresh jalapeno, cucumber and fresh lime.
