Cinco de Mayo in Seattle

It’s not every year that Cinco de Mayo falls on a Friday. Excited Americans, even those progressive thinkers in Seattle, celebrate this blip in Mexican history with tequila-fueled gusto and the Friday factor should only raise the bar (raze the bar?).

So tell your friends to meet you at El Camino for the best happy hour margaritas in Seattle. El Camino celebrates happy hour every day from 3-6pm, and we predict our Cinco de Mayo happy hour will be the best happy hour Fremont has ever known …EVER!

If you want to impress your friends (or a total stranger) with your Cinco de Mayo knowledge, click here for a good description of what happened on May 5, 1862. Sip your margarita with confidence and amaze anyone who will listen with the story of an infamous battle that most Mexicans don’t even pay attention to.

While you’re at it, make sure to try our new pineapple-lime-jalapeno-cilantro slushy. It’s the talk of Frelard (that’s Fremont and Ballard). Topped with a tajin salted rim, these puppies are no joke and a delicious way to dive into the colorful revelry of Cinco de Mayo in Seattle.

See you soon at El Camino!
