Fun, games and hot-and-cold running margaritas. . . that’s what’s on local restaurants’ menus for Cinco de Mayo. (Which, BTW, is next Tuesday.) Here’s a quick rundown on some of the festivities.
Rocco’s Tacos in Boca (5250 Town Center Circle, 561/416-2131), West Palm (224 Clematis St., 561/650-1001) and Palm Beach Gardens (5090 PGA Blvd., 561/623-0127) will be pulling out all the stops with their annual CdeM bash. At each location it begins at noon on Tuesday and continues until the wee hours with food and drink specials, live mariachi music, free tequila pours, prizes and DJs.
At El Camino (15 N.E. Second Ave., 561/865-5350) in downtown Delray the party gets started at 11 a.m. and goes on until 2 in the morning. On-hand will be a DJ and mariachi band, plus cool special cocktails and a raffle giving away a VIP trip to the Key West Lobsterfest in August.
Boca’s Tijuana Flats (22191 Powerline Road, 561/465-2723) kicks things off today with food and drink specials that continue through Tuesday. Look for $5.55 entrees with chips, culminating Tuesday with two tacos, chips and a drink for $5.49. One-dollar drafts, $2 bottle beers, $3 sangria and $4 wine too.
The fiesta begins at 11 a.m. at Rosalita’s (5949 S. Congress Ave., 561/964-5747) in Atlantis and doesn’t stop until 11 o’clock at night. Drink specials and fun for the kiddies will be on tap, with face-painting and a magician along with margaritas big enough to take a bath in.
Uncle Julio’s (449 Plaza Real, 561/300-3530) in Boca is throwing a party too. This one starts at 4 p.m. and goes on until late, featuring dancing, a DJ and various drink specials. Satisfy your margarita fix.
