Arriba! Arriba! Cinco de Mayo is a big deal in Dallas since Tejas shares a border with Mexico. But why not celebrate with your favorite cervezas (mine is actually Modelo Negro) here in Las Vegas. I have curated the celebration for you.
Downtown Summerlin: Pancho's Mexican Restaurant is ground zero for the center's celebration, it's first here in Vegas. There will be live Mariachi bands from noon until 6. After that a blues-rock band, A Slight Return, will heat up the cantina dance floor from 9:30 p.m. until closing. A party tent, located adjacent to the restaurant, will feature drink specials and a DJ from 4 p.m. to midnight.
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas:Pink Taco is celebrating with Pinko de Mayo. The eatery will have a DJ, taco carts and discounts on all Mexican beers. They too will have Mariachis. (This must be the best day if you make your living as a Mariachi guitarist!) Come hungry because there will be a taco-eating contest. The first person to eat 25 tacos wins a free T-shirt! Eat up! Most of the action will be on the patio and the weather should be cooperating.
La Comida: The downtown eatery is doing all of the above (except for the taco-eating contest). But come angry as well as hungry....because there will be pinata smashings too!
For the record, Cinco de Mayo has nothing to do with Mexican Independence Day, which is September 16. (Alas, no parties here in Vegas.) Cinco de Mayo commemorates the triumphof the Mexican army at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. It represents Mexican resistance to foreign intervention and its struggle against imperialism. I'll drink to that!

"Hey Jake, working with you has been fantastic. You really helped make the stressful burden of buying a house a breeze! My wife and I were always impressed by the speed at which you could obtain information to any of our questions. Even helping us find someone trustworthy to get estimates for pool equipment. We can't thank you enough for helping us find the house with the layout we wanted in the area we wanted and making the purchase process so easy!
