Where to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo 2016 in Baltimore

by Jennifer Waldera on May 2, 2016 in Roundups

If you know the actual reason for the season when it comes to Cinco de Mayo, you may be in the minority. However, the majority of us know that it’s one of spring’s best holidays for swilling salt-rimmed glasses of lime and tequila concoctions and for ingesting tacos at top speed. (We’d tell you what the holiday is about, but you’ll forget after all that tequila anyway, right?). Sip or swill at any (or all?) of these spots on Cinco de Mayo.
