Happy Cinco de Mayo Astoria!

Happy Cinco de Mayo Astoria!  I hope you're all planning to go out and enjoy the festivities that go along with this cheery holiday.  Although Mexican in nature, you don't have to be Mexican to enjoy Cinco, as there are plenty of different ethnic eateries and bars that are joining in the fun.  Take a look at my top 10 options here in no particular order. 

Mojave - This modern, Southwestern eatery is going all out with a live band, the Gregorio Uribe Trio and a free margarita with your meal. Call for reservations for parties of 6 or more.
  22-36 31st Street Astoria.  718.545.4100

Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden  - Although their international beer selection is extensive, tomorrow night focuses on Mexican beer.  A bucket of Corona, which consists of 6 bottles is only $20.  The celebration starts at 5 p.m. 29-19 24th Avenue, Astoria. 718.274.4925

Club 21
- Another popular Eastern European watering hole, they know how to celebrate with 1/2 priced margaritas and discounted tequila shots, which go for as low as $3 a pop. 30-09 21st Street, Astoria.  718.728.0305

- I love that Sunswick is kicking it up a notch for Cinco with an entirely different menu and specials on Mexican beers.  A big fan of their burgers, I hope these stay on tomorrow's menu! Check back for more details on their Facebook page. 35-02 35th Street, Astoria.  718.752.0620

- It's a double hitter over at Ovelia with an extended happy hour until 10 p.m., with sangria and beer and the Rock 'n Ribs Wednesdays menu offering.  Make sure you come hungry!   34-01 30th Ave, Astoria. 718.721.7217

- Although it's a restaurant, Testaccio has a great bar in front and drink specials will certainly be in place.  Assorted Coronitas will be served in buckets (5 for $10) and there will be specials on tequila.  And while you're there, don't miss out on a delicious stone oven pizza with a crunchy crust. 47-30 Vernon Blvd, Long Island City. 718.937.2900

- This very subway accessible bar is featuring wallet-friendly drink specials including $5 sangria and Corona and $6 margaritas and tequila drinks.  22-55 31st street, Astoria. 718.777.1177

The Creek and Cave
- Check out this LIC eatery for a Tecate + shot special for $4 as well as $5 margaritas all day.  They'll also have a comedy line-up starting at 8 p.m., so you can get your drink and your laugh on too. 10-93 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City.  718.706.8783

- I love this laid-back speakeasy bar, which will no doubt be a good time for tomorrow night.  They'll feature margarita specials and maybe some beer specials too. Details are still sketchy so  stay tuned or give them a shout for more info.  24-01 29th Street, Astoria, NY 11102. 718.606.2260

La Vuelta
- Although they're not running any specials tomorrow, La Vuelta is a Latin inspired bistro so I encourage you to get your sangria, margarita or empanada fix here.  All their chicken dishes are delicious but I would skip the paella.  10-43 44th Drive, Long Island City. 718.361.1858
