There are many ways to celebrate Mexico’s often-overlooked Cinco de Mayo celebration.
Fill the plate with free burritos, taco deals, margarita specialties, and a Hungry Howie pizza for $ 5.55.
Cinco de Mayo recognizes the Mexican army’s victory over France in 1862, but it is not considered a Mexican federal holiday. This is not Mexico’s Independence Day, celebrated on September 16.
May 5th has become more of a day for people to consume Mexican food, drink and culture.
Chipotle Mexican Grill brought back its popular trivia game for Cinco de Mayo and 250,000 free discount codes are up for grabs until Friday at www.chipotleiq.com.
