Duff’s Cakemix is often host to apron-donning Angelenos getting down and dirty in frosting and cupcakes, but not this time. Nay, this time, it’s all about the eating and DIY crafting. Munch on Cinco De Mayo inspired sweet treats as P.S. I Made This takes over the how-to station with jewelry making and other take-home crafts. It’ll be a #cincoDIYmayo, if you will.

Cinco de Mayo at Cascabel

It’s that time of year again for hangover-inducing Cinco de Mayo cocktails, binge eating chips and guacamole, and drunkenly singing Mexican canciones (it’s a holiday afterall, right?). Celebrate the historic “Battle of Puebla” and Mexican pride with $8 signature margaritas, $4 shots of Arette Blanco Tequila, $10 Tecate/Arette Blanco shots, $2 taco plates, and live mariachis. If you’re thinking that’s a lot of alcohol, it is. That’s why these veteran Cinco de Mayo party throwers are launching a ‘Hair-O De Perro’ bash on May 6 (specifically for hangovers) so Angelenos can pound down tacos to slightly softer music.

Cinco de Mayo at Las Perlas

Given that DTLA’s Las Perlas bar boasts one of the largest tequila and mezcal collections in the city, we can expect they’re geared up for some serious Cinco de Mayo action. Throw back $5 margaritas and palomas from Sino Tequila (with no cover charge) and hit the dance floor to epic lady marchiachi band La Victoria. Sure, there’s margarita hour every Tuesday, but chances are, you haven’t seen it quite like this.
