Cinco De Mayo in Your Neighborhood

All Day Cinco de Mayo Fiesta

Philadelphians known all about independence, so we're right on top of celebrating Mexico's independence victory on May 5th. What's going on in your barrio? Read on.

Northern Liberties will see mucho margarita pitchers served, especially at Cantina Dos Segundos, where the Cinco de Mayo Art Show will feature work from DJ Luis Angel Cancel, Joey Knuckles of Philadelphia Eddie's Tattoo 621, Elena Nestico (DJ Lady Prowl), Daniel P Cordua, K Fish, and others. Drink that in while you're toasting with tequila.

Taco Riendo, the authentic taqueria titan of Old Kensington, is giving out complimentary Corona and tequila to customers. Their outdoor seating area should be the perfect place to tackle some salsa.

You'll want to see it to believe it, but the Cinco De Mayo Macarena Mob will hit the Piazza at exactly 6:30 pm, so make sure you're there.

Rittenhouse Square now has El Rey, Stephen Starr's Mexican diner, to raise a glass at on Cinco de Mayo.

For a real margarita without the typical boisterous crowd, you could ask for one at the Franklin Bar in Rittenhouse Square. You may not find it on the menu, but they KNOW.

In University City, you can always guarantee that there's a fiesta at Distrito. This Cinco de Mayo, they'll be celebrating all day. They're calling it "the best party north of the border...and west of the river." Doors will open at 11:30 am with drink and menu specials. DJs Adub and CSharp start at 9 pm. Don't forget your luchador mask.

Another Mexican favorite of ours is Jose's Mexican Food in the Loft District, perhaps one of the District's best secrets.

Can't make it out on May 5? Saturday's Cinco De Miro III at the Latvian Society is Miro Dance Theatre's aptly-named dance competition.  Think of it as Dancing With the Stars, Cinco de Mayo style.

Summer in the City Honey: Host Your Own Hive

HYOH: Host your own hive? That's how we're referring to a project from Milk & Honey Market in West Philadelphia. The organic market is pairing up with Two Gander Farm for Summer in the City Honey.

HoneycombSimply put, if you have a roof or backyard in West Philly or Center City, you can host a beehive.  Now, before you start freaking out about bee incidents, relax. Trey Flemming of Two Gander Farm will bring the hive to your home, where he'll set it up safely, and he'll visit every three weeks to check up on your little honey-making machine. You'll host the hive from early May to the end of June. It'll be like your own inn of bee guests, and the resulting honey that is harvested will be sold at Milk & Honey Market. Some of the proceeds will benefit The Orchard Project, and all hosts will receive two pints of the sticky stuff. Yum. We can think of all matters of deliciousness that we could wreak with such honey.

Want to HYOH? Call 215-387-milk, email [email protected] or stop by the market at 45th Street and Baltimore Avenue.
