This Friday is Cinco De Mayo, you know the day observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1982 (Wikipedia).
But in America, it is a day known as a drink fest and we have no shortage of places in the Grand Strand to imbibe, or not, and enjoy the festivities.
Many restaurants are hosting events and other fun things to do in the Myrtle Beach area and we have picked a few.
