Cinco De Mayo is one of the most festive of holidays celebrated on the 5th Of May. It commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army. That sounds like a reason to party to me…
It is particularly a huge jubilation in New York City which has a significant Mexican population and the residents of the city are always searching for an excuse to drink tequila!
Whatever your reasoning for participating in the debauchery, there will be a lot of laughs, delicious, Mexican cuisine, tequila shots down the hatch, Corona beers flowing and of course the hilarious comedians at Comic Strip Live in honor of Cinco De Mayo.
COMIC STRIP LIVE’S BASH will be the event to be at for Cinco de Mayo.
