Cinco de Mayo, Oh, My Oh!
Personally, we always celebrate Cinco de Mayo on the second floor of El Cantinero, the cheesy margarita mill not to be confused with the decidedly tonier Il Cantinori. But if a jukebox full of androgynous Mexican boy bands and the tackiest light show this side of Queens don’t cut it, this week’s Bar Buzz has the scoop on slightly more refined celebrations at local restaurants. (You’ll realize we’re using the term “refined” loosely once you discover the meaning of the word “popo.”)
Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
