Cinco de Mayo 2017

Cinco de Mayo 2017

Nothing says Cinco de Mayo like margaritas, cold beer and a savory taco! This year Esperanza cranked it up a notch!

With all-day-give-aways, plenty of margs on hand and 99.9 The Buzz giving away tickets to the Red Hot Chili Peppers - the house was packed.

 

Baker Distributing was in the house buying drinks for the crowd and facilitated the free sombreros, mardi-gras style beads, t-shirts and other fun, party-themed items. The party lasted until after 11pm - DJ Raul kept the beats thumping.

We highly recommend you mark your calendar for next year! This is a party you don't want to miss!
