Fill your shot glass, sprinkle a little salt and hold your limes steady because it is Cinco de Mayo, which means tequila for everyone! On May 5, all across America we embrace the pride, people and heritage of Mexico. This recognition of Mexican independence brings out the best in our two diverse cultures and we are collectively excited about it. If you are looking for a place to embrace this very festive day take a look at some of LA’s top cantinas to help get you in the mood. Not that you have a choice – Angelenos take this celebration very seriously. Viva Mexico!
