Club Candids: Cuatro de Mayo at San Felipe's Cantina
By Lilia Menconi
San Felipe's Cantina on Sunday, May 4
Whatever your opinion on immigration laws, thereâ€™s one Mexican import that all Zonies seem to agree on. OK, two: burritos, and the cerveza- and margarita-filled extravaganza that is Cinco de Mayo. Weâ€™ll gladly join any celebration that calls for heavy drinking. Since we were so pumped, we got a good head start at the â€œCinco de Drinkoâ€ party on Sunday, May 4, at San Felipeâ€™s Cantina. It was the first night of the two-day shindig, and the place sported a healthy crowd munching on nachos and watching live bands. The vibe was pretty relaxed because weâ€™re betting most folks had to work the next day. Sure enough for us, Monday morning was brutal. But it was nothing a shot of tequila couldnâ€™t fix.
