May the 4th be with you on Saturday, but we want to taco ’bout Sunday and all of the plans New York City has in store for you this Cinco de Mayo weekend.
Unlimited Guac and Tacos!
Now this is what we like to call a party. All-you-can-eat tacos, margarita stations, and guacamole that won’t cost you extra: Vandal is offering up many reasons to celebrate with its Cinco de Mayo event, located in its secret garden. Sunday, May 5; 6–8:30 p.m.; 199 Bowery (between Rivington and Delancey Streets), Nolita
Celebrate Mexico’s Independence Day early with the family at Nitehawk Cinema’s kid-friendly screening of The Book of Life, an animated comedy that follows the adventures of two childhood friends during Día de los Muertos. Saturday, May 4; 10:15 a.m.; Nitehawk Cinema, 188 Prospect Park West, Park Slope
Today is all about the fun! Taco Electrico teams up with tequila masters Casamigos for an all-night, all-out Cuatro de Mayo extravaganza. DJs will start spinning at 10 p.m., during which guests will have a chance to win free drinks, margarita pitchers, and even a piñata! Saturday, May 4; 201 Park Avenue South (between East 17th and 18th Streets), Flatiron
A Boozy Class
What’s the difference between reposado and añejo? What’s in a Paloma? Is there really a worm at the bottom of a tequila bottle? Learn the ins and outs of your favorite party drink at Chelsea Wine Vault’s Tequila 101 class, and then put your new knowledge to the test when treated with four handcrafted tequilas. Sunday, May 5; 2–3:30 p.m.; 410 West 16th Street (between Ninth and Tenth Avenues), Chelsea
Not a tequila person? Brooklyn Cider House puts its own spin on this Sunday’s holiday with a weekend-long rooftop event, where, you guessed it, cider is the star of the show. (Brunch—with loaded Cider House nachos, $2 tacos, and a Spanish chorizo and cilantro aioli Hangover Helper sandwich—is a close runner-up.) Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5; 1100 Flushing Avenue, Bushwick
One tequila, two tequila, three tequila—well, we all know what happens next. Try to avoid the “crawl” part of this East Village–wide Cinco de Mayo bar hop, as you participate in a bunch of booze-filled festivities at the neighborhoods’ best watering holes. Sunday, May 5; 1–8 p.m.; starting at Bar None, 98 Third Avenue (between East 12th and 13th Streets), East Village
