13 Metro Phoenix Restaurants and Bars with Cinco de Mayo Celebrations

Okay, so maybe you don't know exactly why it's a tradition to eat, drink, and party on Cinco de Mayo (FYI, it's to commemorate the 150-year-old Battle of Puebla, a victory of the Mexican militia over the French army). But those pesky details shouldn't stop you from having a truly awesome modern American-style night out on the town. If margaritas and Mexican food are your favorite way to let loose, don't miss the celebration at these nine Valley restaurants on Sunday, May 5.
