Maybe this is a good year to celebrate Cinco de Mayo according to a theme. You could a) practice your Spanish and say, “Feliz dia de la Batalla de Puebla,” or “Happy day of the Battle of Puebla,” to everyone you see. You could b) practice your history lessons and note that Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day; it’s the day in 1862 that the underdog Mexican army defeated the invading French army. Or you could c) practice your drinking and see how many crazy margaritas you can find and consume. Let’s go with the third option:
The World's Largest Margarita, The Margaritaville Casino (Las Vegas)
The Margarita-Mojito Mash-Up, Old Blinking Light (Taos, New Mexico)
Margarita as Dessert, Digg's Taco Shop (Dallas, Texas)
Historic Margaritas, Ninfa’s on Navigation (Houston, Texas)
