While some Cinco de Mayo parties got an early start this weekend, the real deal is today. These nine restaurants and bars are bringing out the pig, the tequila, and the Tecate to celebrate Mexico's freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War. It is not Independence Day, but you can have as many shots, tacos, Margaritas and Coronitas as you please.
