some top-shelf tequila, the Mexican cultural celebration provides a great excuse
to get out and about with friends or family and enjoy the neighborhood’s

with their own Taqueria Feliz spin (think crab guacamole, nachos with braised
brisket or tacos stuffed with brussels sprouts)! No Cinco de Mayo meal is
complete without a margarita and Taqueria Feliz will deliver on that front as

are more than 40 different bottles—try one or sample several in a flight.
If you haven’t yet tried Taqueria Feliz (or are
eager for a return visit!), there’s no better time to go than Cinco de Mayo!
