Tacos, tequila, and margaritas, oh my! It’s no mystery that the ShoreBread team loves good food and good drinks. So, when we get to combine our love for margaritas with a night when it’s socially acceptable to eat too many tacos, you can guarantee that we’ll be there with bells on! Also, lucky for us, our favorite tequila and taco holiday just happens to fall on a Friday this year (no feeling guilty about having a queso hangover the next day at work). Lucky for you, we’ve rounded up a list of our favorite spots hosting Cinco de Mayo happenings:
