A Coronavirus Cinco de Mayo Celebration...en casa

Cinco de Mayo is traditionally a party kind of day in Arlington, with specials on cocktails and food. In this era of social distancing and Stay at Home orders, this year’s Cinco de Mayo will be a little different, but several establishments in Arlington’s neighborhoods are creating special deals to ensure you can still celebrate while staying safe.

Rosslyn-based Open Road and Clarendon-based Circa traditionally serve a variety of cuisines, but this year, these two Arlington favorites are taking advantage of this celebration day by doing a pop-up with sister restaurant El Bebe tacos. Both are offering customers fiesta packs, taco kits, fajita kits, salsas & dips, and cocktails from El Bebe for the perfect Cinco de Mayo celebration. Customers need to order by Sunday, May 3, at 5 p.m. for pick up on Tuesday at Open Road Rosslyn or Circa Clarendon from noon to 5 p.m.

Clarendon nightlife hotspot Don Tito usually has the party going on Cinco de Mayo, but this popular spot is making sure everyone can take part in the celebration at home. The restaurant is offering carry-out party packs with six tacos, four margaritas, and chips & salsa for $30. Rosslyn-based Taco Rock also has a Cinco de Mayo special with three tacos and a margarita for $14.

And of course, regional favorite District Taco is also getting into the game with its "Shelter de Mayo Fajita Fiesta Feast - a combo of special steak fajitas, chips and two dips. The restaurant's Arlington locations in Westover and Rosslyn are taking preorders online for pickup for an at-home fiesta.

And the celebrations aren’t limited to restaurants. Arlington’s Eat Yoga Drink is hosting “Cinco de MaYoga,” a fun, festive, flow to honor spirit and cultural contributions of Mexico. BYO margarita or mockarita for an online class featuring traditional music.
