Some of these places require reservations or pre-orders, so call ahead so you don’t miss out on the fun! Here’s 5 of the plans and food specials we’re the most excited about.
1. Cinco de Mayo at Camp North End
This Saturday, from 6pm to 11pm, head on over to Camp North End for an evening full of celebrations. The party will take place in the Boileryard. Enjoy the drink specials, live music, and DJs spinning great tunes, and the best part is, admission is free. Come early and explore all of the art and food that Camp North End has to offer.

Come to On the Border for drink specials, like their $5 house Margaritas (fruit flavors are only $1.50 more) and their $1 Gold tequila shots. They’ve also got Grand Marnier souvenir sidecars on a first-come, first-serve basis due to their limited quantity. Pair a Margarita with their delicious tacos, enchiladas, and fajitas and you’ll be in heaven.

Chuy’s is another Mexican joint offering yummy drink specials all day long–and you even get a commemorative cup if you order a Grande ‘Rita. Chuy’s offers are included on their Martinis and Margaritas (which you can add extra tequila to for $1 more). Whether you want your ‘rita on the rocks or blended, flavored or not, Chuy’s got you covered. They’re also offering take-home meal kits of their delicious Tex-Mex meals for a safe but delicious meal.
