Where to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Westchester
Westchester hotspots celebrate the caliente Mexican holiday.
For the holiday that commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over France in 1862, we thought we’d suggest a couple of spots in Westchester where you can mount your own triumph.
Within feet of the train station in Chappaqua, there is an authentic slice of Mexico awaiting you. At Chappaqua Station (above), you can enjoy house-made tacos, Tecate, and tequila specials from Thursday May 3 straight through Saturday, when the Station will host it's annual all-day fiesta with DJ. This year's fiesta has partnered with Arrette tequila, Tecate Beer, and Yonkers' own La Milpa de Rosa for fresh-made real masa tortillas!
Forget the mariachi band: You’ll hear sweet music in the fare at Armonk’s Mariachi Mexico, which features specials like steak burritos, enchiladas mole, and a great variety of tacos all made with locally sourced ingredients. Cool off with $7 frozen margaritas and $5 Mexican beers on their awesome herb-garden patio.
Yonkers Brewing Co.
How ’bout some cerveza for Cinco de Mayo? At Yonkers Brewing Co., try their Smoke Break, a spicy lager that pairs perfectly with their beer-battered fish tacos. And no problemo, cocktail lovers: YBC also has tequila, mezcal drinks, and their famous margaritas, along with specials on nachos, tacos, and more. On top of $5 drink specials, YBC is also participating in Yonkers' Cinco de Mayo Pub Crawl, with plenty of chances to win gift cards to participating locations!
Tequila lovers, look no further than Sonora in Port Chester for your 5/5 festivities. Boasting the largest selection of tequila in the county including a variety of 141, you’ll be like a kid in a “candy” store. Try the kale ginger mango tequila, a superfood superdrink.
