Mexican Independence Day
Some of you drunkards probably think Mexican Independence Day and Cinco De Drinko are one in the same. Luckily you have us, your oracles of boozy, fattening events & random LA area knowledge, to clear up this misunderstanding for you: Mexican Independence Day is September 16th (Cinco De Mayo is another story entirely). So, if you’re not Mexican and thus find this day just about as exciting as a Canadian Independence Day might be (eh?), what does this mean for you? Drink & Food Specials.
