Bites Nearby: Top Places for Cinco De Mayo

Here are just a few ideas for places to celebrate Cinco De Mayo around the Sound Shore

Cinco De Mayo is upon us and if you are wondering where to go in New Rochelle and the surrounding area for food or drink specials, Patch has a few suggestions that will hopefully keep your wallet light and your taste buds happy.

Also let us not forget why we are celebrating because many people confuse the holiday with Mexican Independence Day. Actually, the day is commemorated because the outnumbered and outgunned Mexican Army defeated the mightier French Army in 1862, turning the tide of the war and is now celebrated here in America as a celebration of Mexican pride and heritage.

Here are just a few places to consider enjoying Cinco De Mayo at.

  • 5-7 p.m., Corona Happy Hour! with $3 bottles of Corona
  • 10 p.m-midnight, $3 shots of Sauza Gold Tequila

  • $5 Drink specials such as Margaritas
  •  $5 Appetizers

  •  4- 7 p.m., $4 Margaritas, $3 Sangria and $3 Beer Specials

Harry's Burritos: 94 Chatsworth Ave., Larchmont

  •  Drink Specials All Day!
  • $3.50 Beers and Margaritas
  • Complimentary Jello Shots while supplies last

In New Rochelle, go to the Little Mexican cafe - without doubt the best food and Margarita in Westchester County. Also, head out to El Trigal for delicious bake goods, if you are lucky, you will find freshly made churros and Mexican Coca Cola: accross the stree, try some Paletas, fruit popsicles, made in over 4 dozen flavors (Flor de Michoacan); then go to Hernandez Supermarket for tasty home made chips, salsa and other mexican goods. Viva Mexico !

Are you buying, Martin?

maybe, the focus with Josh's piece on 5 de Mayo seems to glamorize alcoholic drinking. 5 de Mayo in Mexico is not about that! A bit disrespectful.

Martin, Josh contacted a number of Mexican restaurants in New Rochelle and the ones who returned his calls said they weren't celebrating Cinco De Mayo. No disrespect was intended.
