Cinco Celebrations for Cinco de Mayo

BY Gabriela Reyes


Cinco de Mayo, aka Cinco de Drinko, occurs tomorrow, the perfect way to end your work week. This celebration honors the Mexican army defeating the French’s first attack on the town of Puebla with half the men. With an excuse to celebrate Mexican cuisine, we have created a round-up of five restaurants across the front range hosting specials and who will also be competing in Top Taco 2023.

If you’re new to Denver, you do not want to miss this opportunity to sample unlimited taco tastes and signature tequila cocktails from some of the best restaurants in Denver. Festival-goers will also vote for their favorites to crown four categories of awards: Top Creative Taco, Top Traditional Taco, Top Vegetarian Taco, and Top Cocktail. With stages of fantastic music, creative tequila lounge areas, an entire tent dedicated to mezcal tasting, and some of the best chefs and mixologists in the city, Top Taco has become the can’t-miss summer event in Denver – and always sells out. Plus, we are debuting the Mar y Tierra, The Surf & Turf Taco Throwdown into our VIP experience. Grab your amigos and get your tickets today.
