To get a jump on the festivities, the Uptown Tex-Mex joint is throwing a Friday fiesta from 5-9 p.m. with a taco-eating contest and a mariachi band. Show up for the 4-7 p.m. happy hour, and your margaritas, taps, rails and house wines are all two-for-one. Plus, take $2 off everything on the food menu, including the famous mashed-at-the-table guacamole.
Cinco de Mayo is a weekend-long celebration here. The Eat Street Mexican haunt is hosting some daytime activities for the kiddies, but we recommend a Saturday-night stop to watch the Mayweather-Cotto fight (8 p.m.) on pay-per-view. Regardless of when you time your trip, Pancho Villa is slinging $4 margaritas all weekend long.
While you probably won't find the Most Interesting Man in the World kicking it at this Lyn-Lake bro bar, we're quite sure he'd approve of this Saturday's deals. Nearly all day (save for 4-7 p.m.) bartenders will peddle pints of Dos Equis for just $3. If that doesn't burst your piñata, the Tap House will feature discounts on Corona, rail tequila and pit tacos.
