First there were no bars open on St. Patrick's Day due to Shelter-In-Place. And with SIP continuing through the end of the month May 5, 2020 will be a quiet Cinco de Mayo, too.

Unfamiliar with history of Cinco de Mayo? Here is the story.

On May 5, 1862, the Mexican army defeated the French army at the Battle of Puebla. This defeat is considered the turning point for Mexico and Central America, as it demonstrated the shifting of the power balance in favor of Mexico over the historically more powerful European Colonial country.

Cinco de Mayo is a day that Mexican and Hispanic people celebrate their culture by sharing the event with song, dance, food and celebrations. This year expect to see a lot of virtual Cinco de Mayo events via Zoom, FaceTime and WebEx. 

People sometimes confuse Cinco de Mayo with Mexican Independence Day. Mexican Independence Day is actually September 16. 

Usually in Silicon Valley, the week before May 5th finds peddlers popping up on street corners selling Mexican flags of all sizes-from desktop to flagpole.  By May Day (May 1st) Mexican flags are proudly sprouting up in homes, businesses and all types of vehicles, from motorcycles to trucks to classic low-riders throughout much of Santa Clara County.

When two such flag-bearing vehicles bypass one another, in any year but 2020, one would expect to hear drivers and passengers shout "Viva la raza!" to one another. Viva la Raza is a cultural statement of Hispanic pride, loosely interpreted as “long live the spirit of Mexico”.

Hi Michelle- our restaurants are open but with limited seating (no more than 25%). We opted to get take out from our favorite Mexican restaurant.
