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, here’s a good 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 think about. 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, BTW), and…

Coming back 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.

We hope to see you on Cinco de Mayo or some weekend soon! Get here.
