Where to ‘come thirsty my friends’ for Cinco de Mayo in the Palm Beaches.
1) Calaveras Cantina’s Cinco de Mayo Bash – Jupiter
It’s a block party at Harbourside Place featuring live music, three outdoor bars, and Chihuahua races (benefiting Jupiter Dog Rescue). Make sure to check out the taco tent (for speedy taco service) with fresh tacos, guacamole, and salsa.
125 Dockside Drive, Jupiter
Mariachi Band from 1 p.m. – 6 p.m.
DJ Lucho from 6 p.m. – 1 a.m.
What’s great is there is a Rocco’s near just about every major city in Palm Beach County; so there is one probably near you. They each have Cinco parties that are scaled differently for each of their locations (West Palm Beach’s being the rowdiest and most fun). There are DJs and Bands all day and all night plus drink specials.
