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.
One of Westchester's favorite dining destinations, the Kittle House will host The Cinco de Mayo Murders on Saturday, May 4 at 8 p.m. It's a full-on murder mystery/comedy dinner theater, with professional actors sitting amongst the crowd! Enjoy the Chappaqua restaurant's signature flair in a timely menu throughout, all for $75 per person (or $95 with beer and house wine).
Forget the mariachi band: You’ll hear sweet music in the fare at Armonk’s Mariachi Mexico, which will open from noon until 9 p.m. on Sunday. Patio seeting will be first-come, first-served, but no matter where you sit you can enjoy $8 frozen lime margaritas, $5 imported beers, and a limited-time chef's menu featuring chicken chipotle and carnitas tacos, enchiladas mole, bistec burritos, nopal (cactus) and carnitas tostadas, and plenty of guac with either chips or farm-fresh veggies.
This contemporary Mexican joint in Hartsdale will offer giveaways all weekend starting as early as Thursday night. Drink specials will also be available, including $3 shots of Herradura and El Jimador. Reservations are encouraged.
Grab your friends and have a fiesta for Cinco de Mayo weekend at Blue Moon Mexican Café! The celebration begins at 3 p.m. on Friday with Fiesta Hour until 7 p.m. and a Dos Equis promotional party from 5p.m. to 6 p.m. Live music, giveaways, and drinks specials will be running all weekend, straight through Sunday the Fifth which will sport even more promo parties by Dos Equis, Corona, and Patron, plus mariachi bands and more. Enjoy guacamole, tacos, and more delicious Mexican food!
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. In addition, this county mainstay will be offering $5 margs and $5 guac at the bar and lounge.
