There’s a ton of stuff to do around here today if you feel like a little south-of-the-border celebration.
If you’re after some authentic food and drink, here are some suggestions from the restaurant-reservations app Open Table. (Okay, one of them’s actually Cuban, but . . . close enough, I guess.)
And from the great website Seattle Pipeline, this big list of Cinco de Mayo festivals, parties, shows, and dinners. (And — bonus!! — since it’s also the first Thursday of the month, lots of opportunities for free admission to some of the Northwest’s coolest cultural institutions.)
Finally, if you’re staying around your casa tonight, maybe you’d like to whip up some fresh salsa. (I mean salsa fresca.) Here are some great recipes, from simple to sophisticated, from the Seattle Times.
Have a great Cinco de Mayo, and if you’re having a margarita or three, let an amigo do the driving, okay?
