Cinco de Mayo Los Angeles 2012 - May 2nd, 2012

by Maren Swanson



This year, (and by year, I mean more specifically WEEK) I'm a very happy camper. Not only does my birthday fall on the celebratory Cinco de Mayo, it's on a Saturday this year and so is the Kentucky Derby. Can a girl ask for more? Yes, as long as you don't let me ask for any more tequila - we know how that ends. So it's with great pleasure that I've compiled a list of great venues to celebreate Cinco de "Maren," I mean "Mayo" at, and there is no shortage of specials either. Have a drink for the Battle of Puebla, the beatiful horses and for me, and remember to party responsibly!





Lola's on Fairfax will have "bottomless" drink specials including: $18 Sauza Margaritas (Grapefruit, Regular, Strawberry, Watermelon) and $18 Micheladas (Corona beer, fresh lime juice & a roasted jalapeno pepper,
loads of ice & a salt rim ). Oh, and did we mention happy hour too?! From 4pm - 7pm, drinks are 50% off, in addition to $6 Sauza Margaritas, $4 Corona Beer, $3 Tacos (chicken, beef & pulled pork) specials offered all night.


Lola's (323) 654-5652

945 North Fairfax Ave
West Hollywood, CA 90046



The Churchill - If you don't make it to their other venue, The Hudson, The Churchill will be throwing a grande fiesta this Saturday with $5 Peligroso Tequila shots, $6 house margaritas, $8 honeydew melon/chili infused margaritas, $5 Micheladas and for bites you can nibble on $6 chips and guacamole, $8 chorizo queso dip with warm tortillas or $10 carne asada tacos.

El Chavo - Get your Cinco de Drinko on at El Chavo (aka El Chavito), where DJs will be spinning, "cinco" ($5) priced margaritas will be shaking and people will be swinging their hips to the latin beats of salsa and cumbia. This Silver Lake party will commence at 4pm and run until 2am with no cover and free giveaways. You can also grab a taco trio deal for only $10 that includes 3 soft tacos, beans and rice and your choice of a beer or margarita. Oh, si!
