Happy Cinco de Mayo! Where to Celebrate the Holiday in the Alexandria Area?

Happy Cinco De Mayo to our readers!

If you’re looking for a place to celebrate this ‘unofficial’ holiday, locally in Alexandria, Virginia, there’s the San Antonio Bar & Grill at the Hoffman Town Center in Eisenhower East, Taqueria Poblano and Los Tios in Del Ray, and Los Cuates, Austin Grill, and Casa Felipe in Old Town just to name a few. The Washington Post’s Going Out Guide has a listing of other Cinco De Mayo events in the D.C. area.

If you celebrate a little too much tonight, remember you can get a FREE ride home ($30 MAX fare). Call 1.800.200.TAXI.

Above, the great website Watch Mojo explains the history and background of Cinco de Mayo, the holiday that commemorates an initial victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

Exit Question: So when do we celebrate ChinChili Day?
