Where To Raise a Glass This Cinco de Mayo

Spice up your Tuesday with these Cinco de Mayo deals from across the metro.  

Port Fonda is one of the city’s most popular destinations for Mexican cuisine and tequila any day—in fact its bar was just named one of the best in the U.S.—so you know it will draw a crowd on Cinco de Mayo, especially since it’s offering $4 Dos Equis Draws and $5 Olmenca Altos Plata and Resposado shots. Make a reservation to shore up your spot.

All day at Overland Park’s Tortilla Ranch Mexican Grill, specials include $2.50 Coronas, top shelf 16-ounce margaritas and Sauza Silver tequila shots with any food purchase. Although Mexican fare isn’t always the healthiest, the food here is GMO-free.

Manny’s is going all out with $5 signature margaritas, $3 Mexican beers and a tasty array of $5 apps, including its guacamole, jalapeno cheese dip, nachos gigantes and quesadillas.

Westport Ale House probably isn’t the first place that comes to mind when you’re thinking of places to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but perhaps it should be. The bar opens at 2 p.m. today and its rooftop overlooking Westport is the perfect place to enjoy deals such as $2.50 beef or chicken tacos, $5 Dos Equis and Corona Lite, $4 Espolon Reposado and $5 margaritas.

Sip $5 sangria and margaritas throughout the day at CocoBolos, and enjoy live music from Cuarteto Coyoacán 6 – 9 p.m. Be sure to take advantage of the restaurant’s $5 appetizer menu and free chips and salsa offer. You’ll also find specials at Prairiefire’s Rock & Brews and karaoke at The Art Factory, so make an evening out of your trip.

For something a little more unique than a margarita, head to Zocalo’s, where its new 620 Paloma, made with pineapple-grapefruit infused tequila, lime, simple syrup and Steigl Radler) is on special for $7. The restaurant will also be featuring deals on shrimp ceviche, chicken taquitos and carne asada tacos 3 p.m. to close.

More into wine than tequila? Join the fun at Cinco de SAVE, a special happy hour at Amigoni Vineyards and Urban Winery benefiting SAVE, Inc. For $25, you get a glass of sangria and wine as well as Spanish hors d’oeuvres prepared by Chef Renee Kelly.

If your Tuesday night is already booked with less celebratory plans, squeeze a little festivity into your coffee break and try The Roasterie’s May drink of the month. The Horchata latte can be served hot or cold and blends Klass rice and cinnamon horchata with espresso and milk for a tasty pick-me-up that’s safe to imbibe at the office.
