We mustache you a question, but we’ll shave it for later… because Cinco de Mayo is here! Put those Derby hats away and take out your sombreros! We are ready to celebrate the best way we know how; drinking margaritas out of our S’wells and eating guacamole. Of course we can’t forget nachos and piñatas hanging around filled with candy we’ll be sure to nosh on later. So grab your amigos and celebrate Cinco de Mayo and the real beginning of Spring!
For you New York City dwellers, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best celebration spots:
Roberta’s, the infamous Bushwick pizza haven, is serving up tacos and margaritas in their outdoor tiki bar.
Empellon Cocina in East Village is hosting a prix fixe Cinco de Mayo menu with unlimited margaritas, beer and house wine for $70
If you’re craving a rooftop fix and a Mexican feast at the same time, Salvation Taco, the Mexican restaurant on top of the Pod 39 hotel will do the trick.
Mission Cantina is an office favorite. If you’re feeling more like a Netflix marathon to bring in the holiday, get their super burrito to go (or delivery). It may or may not be the best burrito this side of California.
Javelina is a new Tex-Mex spot just a few blocks away from the S’well HQ and is high on our list so if you try it before us, please let us know the verdict. We hear the avocado margarita is the way to go.
For those of you outside of the empire state, we wanted to share with you our favorite margarita and guacamole recipes. Your homemade margarita will taste even better in a S’well sitting at your local beach/park.
