Cinco de Mayo in Chicago

Jean Ward - Chicago Lake CondosThe workday is almost over.  Are you celebrating Mexican culture, cuisine, and music today on Cinco de Mayo?  While many formal events commemorating the unlikely victory of the Mexican army over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, already ran their course over the weekend, there’s still many fiestas to attend today.  Whether you’ve already got your agenda penciled in or you didn’t even remember today was the day, check out these local celebrations in Chicago:

Pilsen

Visit the Pilsen neighborhood, where you can dine authentically into the late night at Nuevo Leon, where you can BYOB.  Afterwards, drop by Xocoatl at 2214 S. Wolcott to get your sugar fix from their heavenly churros. 

Little Village

If Little Village is more your speed, don’t miss Mi Tierra at 2528 S. Kedzie Ave., where you can request a tableside serenade from the Mariachi band at this lively restaurant with a full bar.

Downtown

If you’re downtown this afternoon, celebrate Cinco De Mayo at Mezcalina in Streeterville at 333 E. Benton Pl. Ste. #100, near Millenium Park.  You can get $5 tacos, guacamole, torta sandwiches, shrimp ceviche and margaritas at this upscale mexican eatery and listen to a Spanish guitarist perform from 5-7 p.m.

Want to celebrate, but don’t care to actually sample the custom Mexican cuisine?  By all means, stop in after work at Daley Plaza at 50 E.
