Cinco de Mayo Taco Tuesday — We’re in!
Cinco de Mayo Taco Tuesday. We're on it!
This year, Cinco de Mayo falls on … Taco Tuesday. How fortuitous — for you. Despite COVID-19 restrictions and quarantines, restaurants and bars continue to find creative ways of celebrating important occasions such as this.
A sampling of places doing Cinco de Mayo justice:
Kelnero Bar, 545 Main Street, Edmonds. Mediterranean Margarita crates with a fresh batch of blood oranges, throw in a bottle of mezcal or tequila and “you might just find a little surprise in your pickup.” Order online, pickup 4 p.m.-7 p.m.
Bar Dojo, 8404 Bowdoin Way, Edmonds. Hawaiian style kalua pig street tacos, ancho chile rubbed American Wagyu brisket nachos with Beecher’s Cheese, and Dragon’s Fire margaritas. Limited quantities of the margaritas left, preorder fast.
A Very Taki Tiki Bar, 518 Main St., Edmonds. Mention the May 3rd Cinco de Mayo social media post for 20 percent off your order of street tacos, taquitos, quesadillas, and taco salad. Add lots of their killer salsa.
The New Mexicans, 1416 Hewitt Ave., Everett. Taco Tuesday means two tacos for $7, Corona beer on clearance, $2 a bottle, and margaritas to go.
