Cinco de Mayo is Friday, and for many Americans, that means enjoying Mexican food... and probably a few margaritas.
And that also means many restaurants around the area are offering great deals and fun events for the holiday.
Here are a few we found around Colorado:
Stop by the chain known for their all-day, every day Happy Hour to grab a $5 margarita or draft beer and keep the cup.
This Englewood taco shop has a lot of drink specials for Cinco de Mayo: $5 Arta Margaritas and rozen Palomas, $3 Negra Modelo and Pacifico, $8 Arta Reposado shot and a beer, $9 Anejo shots & $4 mango jalapeno infused Arta Blanco shots. They're also offering two crunchy tacos for $5. And there's a raffle for a helicopter tour of Denver.
