With Cinco de Mayo just a week away, we over at Foobooz Headquarters decided we could no longer put off going through the folder we had marked, “Cinco de Mayo: Deal With Later,” in our emails. So here it is you tequila and guacamole guzzling heathens: your guide to Philly’s Cinco de Mayo.
Cinco de Mayo Street Festival at El Rey: The Stephen Starr restaurant is hosting its first ever, all-day (5/5, 2pm-10pm) street festival, featuring Mexican street food (think tacos, quesadillas, nachos, corn, margaritas and agua fresca), live mariachi music, piñatas and giveaways. The festival will be on the 2000 block of Ranstead Street.
Editor’s Note: Whenever we get a fresh body added to the team here at Foobooz World HQ, the first thing we ask them to do is create a six-pack for us. It can be about something you like to eat, we say. About something you like to cook. New Foob-tern Regan Abato went another way. She wanted to talk about what she likes to drink.
I think Regan is going to fit in here just fine…
Lately, Philadelphians seem to be obsessed with cocktails. And not just any cocktails, but drinks with outlandish infusions, unusual flavors and ingredients someone who was never a bartender probably never heard of. With these crazy concoctions popping up at almost every bar in town, I started thinking about something a little simpler. While a margarita's endless options can be dizzying, it is also a totally approachable drink that can be great in any form.
So with so many drinks and so few happy hours, here's a six pack of some of the best margaritas in Philadelphia you need to try right now.
Lolita Restaurant knows that on a Sunday and/or Monday – especially one approaching the holiday – beer is always a good idea, as is saving money.
So, on Sunday, December 7th and Monday, December 8th, the restaurant will host a 3-course Holiday Beer Dinner with a menu of Mexican food meeting Christmas beer. And you can’t complain about the cost, it’s only $35 per person.
