#DTBKatHome: Cinco de Mayo
Now you can experience Downtown Brooklyn cuisine and programming from home!
May 04, 2020
Cinco de Mayo has arrived and it’s time to celebrate - DTBK style! While things might be a little different this year, there’s no reason to dial down the party. Take advantage of all that the neighborhood (and internet) has to offer to have a blast at home.
If you’re running low on ingredients for a classic margarita, stop by or get a delivery from one of the many liquor stores currently open for business - Wright & Goebel Wine and Spirits, Urban Uncorked, or G&I Wine & Spirits - to make that favorite Cinco de Mayo cocktail. Local grocery stores Brooklyn Fare, Khim’s Millennium Market, Concord Market, or NYC Fresh Market for any missing cocktail and guacamole ingredients. Guac and chips make for the perfect margarita pairing!
Prefer to let someone else be the bartender? Local Peruvian restaurant Pollo D’Oro is offering a special on margaritas to go! Choose from three flavors (Classic, Passion Fruit, or Jalapeño Spicy) and get a glass, a bottle, or a pitcher. Cheers!
