Mariachi bands and margaritas are the stars of Carnivale's Cinco de Mayo celebration. There will also be a taco station with $2.50 tacos and a cigar roller, if you have the inclination. Drink specials include an $8 classic margarita and $8 El Diablo, with reposado, pomegranate, ginger beer and lime.
Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexico's victory against the French in the 1862 Battle of Puebla, but American celebrations are mostly of the eating and drinking variety. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with traditional dishes at Mexican restaurants, Chicago's best tacos, plenty of tequila and the best margaritas in Chicago.
