Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican unlikely military victory over French forces at the 1862 Battle of Puebla. Despite popular belief, May 5 isn’t Mexico’s Independence Day. That day actually falls on September 16. Americans have made the holiday a real favorite, and there are plenty of themed events going on throughout the city’s bars and clubs to honor Mexican culture and heritage. Plus, who doesn’t like Mexican beer?
DJs 5 Hour Boner and Sam Roth Stein will spin at Mary’s starting at 9 p.m. at the bar’s ‘Run for the Border’ theme night.
