Easter, check. Mother’s Day, on the way. It’s time to think about where to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this week. One spot that is a must-check-out is Fox Restaurant Concepts’ Blanco Tacos + Tequila, located in Scottsdale and Tucson. On Thursday, May 5, the Scottsdale Road location at the Borgata will celebrate with an all-day happy hour, during which all all cheese crisps, starters (that include Blanco’s amazing guacamole; braised short rib and avocado short ribs cheese crisp; queso fundido and much more), house margaritas, well drinks and draft beers are all 50 percent off. To add to the festivities, mariachis will start playing at 5 p.m. and Hornitos promo girls will be around to dole out swag and commence Hornitos tequila tastings. Once the sun goes down, DJ E-House will start spinning from 6 to 10 p.m. 480.305.6692 (Blanco Tacos + Tequila at the Borgata in Scottsdale).
Down south, at the Tucson-based Blanco location, the restaurant will host a special Cinco de Mayo happy hour from 2 to 6 p.m., and like the Scottsdale outpost, all cheese crisps, starters, house margaritas, well drinks and draft beers will be offered at 50 percent off. A mariachi band will entertain from 4 to 6 p.m. and Hornitos girls will be in the house for tequila tastings and swag giveaways. 520.232.1007 (Blanco Tacos + Tequila in Tucson). http://www.foxrc.com/.
