— Sure, Cinco de Mayo is kind of an Americanized Mexican holiday, a much bigger deal north of the border. But never mind, it’s a great day have a party with your favorite señorita.

The parties were in full swing on Saturday, May 5 – the “cinco” in Cinco de Mayo. Nacho Mamas had the Marco Walk rockin’ with music from Starz, $4 Margaritas, and tacos for a buck. Margarita’s at the Town Center featured a mariachi band, and a full Mexican buffet. The Shops of Olde Marco at the island’s north end held a fiesta of their own, with a classic rock band, ‘muchas cervezas,’ and fish tacos from Lee Be Fish.
