Your Cinco de Mayo Week To-Do List

Margarita Battle-Logos

If you love Cinco de Mayo, then you’ll love what we have planned! We’re turning Cinco de Mayo into a week-long celebration, including a big-time margarita competition, special margarita pricing on Cinco de Mayo Eve, and a ton of festivities on the big day itself.

On Monday, May 2nd from 4:30-7PM at Cyclone’s on Durham, we’re kicking things off with what we’re calling the Margarita Battle Royale! We’re putting the best margaritas in Houston head-to-head in a blind taste test competition. Heavyweights like the Original Ninfa’s on Navigation, El Patio, Beaver’s, and Rico’s Morning + Noon + Night are joining us in the ring to claim the title of “Best Margarita in Houston”!

We have a star-studded panel that includes judges from CultureMap, Houstonia, KHOU, Urban Swank, Treadsack, and The Leader. These folks have serious margarita credentials! We’re inviting you to become a judge as well! Purchase a ticket here for your own flight of the competitors’ margaritas, and a ballot to join in the voting of a “Fan’s Choice.” We’ll even be raffling off a Jose Cuervo Rolling Stones Guitar! All ticket/raffle sales will be donated to the Houston Food Bank to help support the amazing work they’re doing in the community.

Once the dust has settled from the competition, we’re going to warm up for the main event with $5 regular house margaritas ALL DAY on Cinco de Mayo Eve. While you’re enjoying your favorite margaritas at a great price, try some of our most popular eats, like our brisket tacos with spicy slaw, jumbo lump crabmeat nachos, seafood ceviche, or our seasonal special crawfish enchiladas!

Finally, on May 5th, or CINCO DE MAYO, the party will really get started! Make your way through our extensive margarita list to find which one is just right for you. While you’re imbibing on our signature cocktails, we’ll also have DJs spinning tunes at every location to keep the mood right. If that wasn’t enough, you’ll be able to get your hands on A TON of festive prizes and giveaways.

With so many fun things happening, Cyclone Anaya’s is THE place to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. We hope to see you and your friends out with us all week!
