Social Tuesdays enjoys Cinco de Mayo fiesta

Add this share


When you’re looking to stage a successful evening out on the town, nothing helps quite like wrapping it around a holiday designed for drinking.

imageSocial Tuesdays knows that and they proved it again this week, holding their weekly dose of cocktails and conversation at Las Margaritas on Cheshire Bridge Road. Oh, yeah. It was Cinco de Mayo, too, and the eatery was offering drink specials that helped make celebrating the occasion a little more fun and a lot less costly. The evening was also a fundraiser for the Wet Demons of the Hotlanta Softball League.

The large crowd spilled outside onto the patio and into the parking lot, making good use of the three temporary bars the restaurant had on hand for the occasion. By the way, Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Just sayin’.

Social Tuesdays found similar success March 17 when they staged their weekly event at Vickery’s in Midtown. That just happened to be St. Patrick’s Day, a holiday — much like the one this week — that offers revelry with plenty of cocktails.
