Every major drinking holiday that takes place in America each year -- whether we're talking St. Patrick's Day or New Year's Eve -- typically involves two things: Copious amounts of cheap beer or discounted hooch being consumed and people getting slizzered while wearing funny hats.

Cinco de Mayo is no exception to this rule, as many a sombrero will be donned by drunken patrons (who likely have sucked down more than their fair share of cerveza) during numerous parties this weekend.

Several Cinco celebrations throughout Scottsdale and Tempe sound will offer more than just these activities, however, and sound a bit more fun and adventure than any other tequila-fueled affair. Read on for our list of nine fiestas worthy of your attention.

Canteen
This tacos 'n' tequila joint teams up with next-door neighbor Fat Tuesday for the El Mexcellente! Cinco de Mayo Block Party, which will encompass both properties. A slew of DJs (including Aaron Taylor of KISS FM) will dance hits all day, drink specials like $2 Coronas and $4 Margaritas will be available until 6:30 p.m., and $250 grand prize will be awarded to the winner of a cornhole competition. Gates open at 11 a.m. Admission is $5.

Sandbar Peoria
There will be plenty to see and do during the annual Cinco de Sandbar party at the Peoria location of the Mexican beach bar chair, especially on Saturday evening. Lime-bobbing and jalapeño-eating competitions will take place, local bands like Black Bottom Lighters will perform, and a bikini contest offering $1,000 in cash and prizes will be held. A special cornhole tournament is also scheduled for Sunday. Doors open at 11 a.m. both days.

Loco Patron
Although most Cinco de Mayo parties across the Valley will afford patrons the opportunity to act like fools (probably after one too many Coronas or shots of Patron), a few will actually offer them a chance to get a photos with an actual ass while looking a jackass. Such will be the case at Loco Patron, which will truck in a donkey for its Cinco de Mayo festivities on Saturday. DJs, drink specials, and other fun is planned. Doors open at 11 a.m.

No bars in Tempe must have paid to be included in this article.  I mean seriously, the Dollhouse?  Who the hell would go there for Cinco?  This article is a joke, and reeks of payola.

No money (or anything else for that matter) was exchanged in regards to the content of this article rednail64. Sorry to spoil your well thought out accusation.

And in case you didn't notice, several Tempe establishments are included in the list (School of Rock, Canteen, Olive Branch, Margarita Rocks).

Many other Tempe establishments are also listed in our annual Cinco de Mayo party guide and none of 'em had to pay to be included.

Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla,[1][2][3][4] where the holiday is called El Dia de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla).[5][6][7] The date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride,[8] and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War.[9] In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.[2][10] Contrary to widespread popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day—the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico—which is actually celebrated on September 16.[2] [11]
