Happy Cinco De Mayo ~ Party All Week-end!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

I’m sure many of you know that Cinco de Mayo is a yearly celebration held on May 5 to celebrate Mexico's victory over the Second French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, led by General Ignacio Zaragoza. This year it will fall on this Sunday, but doesn't mean the festivities aren't all weekend!

For those of you who need a refresher course: The Battle of Puebla occurred during the Franco-Mexican War, a conflict between the Mexican government led by President Benito Juárez and the French forces of Napoleon III. The Mexican Army was totally outnumbered and outgunned, but they achieved an unexpected and significant victory over the French forces at Puebla. It's amazing what you can do when you set your mind and focus on winning!

Even though Cinco de Mayo was initially born and observed in Mexico, in the U.S., Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a lively cultural celebration of Mexican heritage, featuring parades, festivals, traditional music and dance performances, and, of course, plenty of delicious Mexican cuisine. In Texas we love our Margaritas and tacos!

When our office was trying to come back together from COVID our office held a Cinco De Mayo party outside with beer, frozen Margaritas and tacos. We had so much fun! Don't you love our masks!!!

There are lots of activities going on over the week-end in Austin. Here are 4 very fun events to consider:

u May 5: Enjoy specials at La Popular

Newly opened Mexican restaurant La Popular will celebrate Cinco de Mayo on May 5. Specials will be available, including $10 margaritas, $5 Coronas and $5 al pastor tacos served on corn tortillas made in-house. La Popular opened in Lantana Place on April 24, and it is overseen by Executive Chef César de la Parra and Vice President of Beverage Operations Trevor Tyler.

Hmm, I have a feeling there will be more celebrations than normal this year since Biden has let so many illegal immigrants into the country recently, haha.
