It's ultra tempting to spend Cinco de Mayo at your local cantina, downing margarita after margarita, pretending like you know what the holiday is about. Here's the thing: it's not Mexican Independence Day (seriously!) AND it's also the worst day possible to down margarita after margarita at a cantina because EVERYONE ELSE HAS THAT SAME IDEA. With that in mind, here are LA's top eight places to avoid no matter what for Cinco de Mayo:
It's the frattiest, trashiest Mexican bar in LA! Which means sometimes it's super fun, and today, there is no possible way you're even getting a single drink. Nope.
It's dark, it's full of Mexican wrestling masks, and it makes, arguably, the best margarita in town. Which is why you're going to wait at least an hour before stepping inside. Avoid, and go back May 6th.
