On May 5 (this coming Thursday), the masses will be headed to the Mexican restaurants and to the bars to celebrate... wait, let me look it up... Just kidding! On this day, we will be celebrating the Mexican army's victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. I lied. I was not kidding and had to look that up. In reality, most of us are celebrating another excuse to drink and over-indulge. Here are some places holding special events for Cinco de Mayo to help you along the path to drunken victory:
Time Out (613 S I45) will be having a free buffet courtesy of Fuzzy's Tacos from 5 - 7 PM. They will have $3 margaritas, Coronas, and tequila shots. They will also have a $200 karaoke contest.
The Jolly Fox (2504 SH Ave) will be having a concert (Randy Rogers, Wade Bowen, John Slaughter). Doors open at 5 PM. There will be crawfish while supplies last. Tickets are $15 in advance. More info: www.jollyfoxclub.com
We will be adding to this list if we find out about other events and specials, so stay tuned - because no one else publishes these things online anywhere! Feel free to email us if you would like to add something to this list. Seeya around!
