Cinco de Mayo celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France during the Franco-Mexican War. In the U.S., it’s widely interpreted as a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage. Celebrations include parades, parties, music, dancing and traditional food such as tacos.
If you’re going out for a margarita this Saturday, I recommend Cantina 18 in Raleigh or Morrisville. Mix and match tasty tacos and pair them with a refreshing margarita. I love the Skinny Girl marg.
Cantina has a brand new catering menu, perfect for any event you’re planning or a casual lunch for the office.
