Happy Mexican Independence Day!
Who doesn’t wish Cinco de Mayo came twice a year? Well, you might have been thinking all along that you were celebrating Mexico’s Independence Day each year on May 5th, but we’re here to clear up the confusion and give you one more reason to celebrate. While Cinco de Mayo is a much smaller holiday commemorating Mexico’s victory at the Battle of Puebla, today is the true Mexican Independence Day!
Two local Sacramento restaurants are paying tribute to this important day in Mexico’s history with special events tonight:
Zocalo –Stop by tonight starting at 5 p.m. when the party will just be getting started with a mariachi band, norteno-style music, folklorica ballet dancers and a professional jimador demonstrating the tequila-making process. Zocalo’s main event will be a tasting hosted by Herradura featuring their top-shelf tequilas.
Ernesto’s Mexican Food – Don’t miss out on Ernesto’s drink specials, live mariachi performances, music and dancing all evening long.
