Cinco de Mayo in Seattle

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

If you want to impress your friends (or total strangers) with your Cinco de Mayo knowledge as you confidently sip your margarita, click here for a description of what happened on May 5, 1862. You can amaze anyone who will listen with the riveting tale of an infamous battle that most Mexicans don’t even pay any attention to. You are sure to be the hit of Cinco de Mayo in Seattle.

And, since you are so on the ball, get here with your friends for the best happy hour margaritas in Seattle. We celebrate happy hour every day from 3-6pm and we humbly admit that our Cinco de Mayo happy hour last year was the best happy hour Fremont has ever known …EVER! Just sayin.

Pro tip: we are currently featuring a delicious prickly pear slushy along with our famous margaritas. They are the talk of Frelard (that’s Fremont and Ballard).

Coming soon: our new pineapple-lime-jalapeno-cilantro slushy will make its return this summer, so be on the lookout. Topped with a tajin salted rim, these puppies are no joke and an amazing way to dive into the colorful revelry of an evening at El Camino.

See you this weekend or sometime soon! Get here.

  • Michelada v. Margarita

    July-ke a margarita? We like margaritas too. In fact, it’s been said many, many times that El Camino has the best margaritas in Seattle. No kidding. I’ve heard it myself. Since 1996, we’ve been juicing up greater Seattle (and its visitors) with the real thing – a tart, yet sweet lime margarita on the rocks […]

  • A Mexican Seattle Summer

    Now that Fremont Solstice is behind us and the clamor of the parade still rings in our ears, we turn our attention to a real Seattle summer. Yes, it’s that sweet time of the year, time for vacations, boat days, beisbol, suntans and, of course, cool, cool happy hour margaritas. It’s not endless, but it’s […]
