Cinco De Mayo in Your Neighborhood

All Day Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Philadelphians known all about independence, so we’re right on top of celebrating Mexico’s independence victory on May 5th. What’s going on in your barrio? Read on.

Northern Liberties will see mucho margarita pitchers served, especially at Cantina Dos Segundos, where the Cinco de Mayo Art Show will feature work from DJ Luis Angel Cancel, Joey Knuckles of Philadelphia Eddie’s Tattoo 621, Elena Nestico (DJ Lady Prowl), Daniel P Cordua, K Fish, and others. Drink that in while you’re toasting with tequila.

Taco Riendo, the authentic taqueria titan of Old Kensington, is giving out complimentary Corona and tequila to customers. Their outdoor seating area should be the perfect place to tackle some salsa.

You’ll want to see it to believe it, but the Cinco De Mayo Macarena Mob will hit the Piazza at exactly 6:30 pm, so make sure you’re there.

Rittenhouse Square now has El Rey, Stephen Starr’s Mexican diner, to raise a glass at on Cinco de Mayo.

For a real margarita without the typical boisterous crowd, you could ask for one at the Franklin Bar in Rittenhouse Square. You may not find it on the menu, but they KNOW.

In University City, you can always guarantee that there’s a fiesta at Distrito. This Cinco de Mayo, they’ll be celebrating all day. They’re calling it “the best party north of the border…and west of the river.” Doors will open at 11:30 am with drink and menu specials. DJs Adub and CSharp start at 9 pm. Don’t forget your luchador mask.

Another Mexican favorite of ours is Jose’s Mexican Food in the Loft District, perhaps one of the District’s best secrets.

Can’t make it out on May 5? Saturday’s Cinco De Miro III at the Latvian Society is Miro Dance Theatre’s aptly-named dance competition. Think of it as Dancing With the Stars, Cinco de Mayo style.


What’s Open 14 Hours in Rittenhouse Square and Will Change Your Life?
