Now serving: Cinco de Mayo in the Triangle

Sometimes the old fiesta at your local cantina gets a little dullsville. The same basket of chips and salsa and watery Micheladas feels ho hum year after year. No me gusta. Triangle revelers in need of an excuse to commemorate the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at the Battle of Puebla in 1862 have several super cool options this year. Maybe not all Mexican-ish, but all sound totally delicious to this gringo girl.

It's Michelada time somewhere...cerveza and tomato juice. Me gusta.

Let’s start with today’s Living Social deal…$10 for $20 worth of food at Carrburrito. That’s a lot of sweet potato black bean burritos the size of your arm. Maybe that’s not on the agenda for tonight though. Moms in the Triangle should head over to Acme in Carrboro tonight. According to yesterday’s email blast, all mothers eat free tonight. Free? So they say. Sounds like someone started on the tequila a little early on Wednesday…

Other cool events in the Triangle include half price beer, wine and cocktails at Raleigh’s Market Restaurant in honor of their first anniversary as well as a New Holland Beer tasting of El Mole Ocho Mexican Spiced Ale and mole feast at Sip…a wine store in Cary.
