At absolutely no point over the next 72 hours or so should you have to ask the question, ¿Dónde está la partido este fin de semana? (or "Where is the party this weekend?" for you monolinguists). ¿Por qué? Because there are going to be an exhaustive amount of celebrations occurring in honor of Cinco de Mayo, that's why. (Heck, our annual drinking and party guide is filled with dozens upon dozens of these same events found across the Valley.)
