Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican holiday that we celebrate in the US as Mexican Independence Day when in fact it is simply the celebration of a Mexican victory over the French in a battle in 1862, the real Mexican Independence Day being September 16. I didn’t do any deliveries today but did get out to see how a couple of Mexican restaurants were preparing for the holiday take-out demand.
The new Cinco de May (the restaurant) had a mariachi band. I feel really bad because I had zero dollars in my wallet to tip them after taking these pictures. I live in Nashville, I should know better. Hopefully they will be a regular fixture and I’ll make it right in the near future.
Rose Pepper was preparing for a full-on assault. I was there a little before 5 so it was pretty empty but they were prepared for lots of people and seemed to be on top of the spacing.
I drove by Las Maracas, El Fuego, and Mos Tacos as well. They all had lines of people picking up food but I didn’t stop for pictures at any of them.
