Any excuse for a celebration, and islanders are on it. Despite being confused with Mexican’s Independence Day celebration (which is actually September 16th), Cinco de Mayo commemorates the morale boosting victory of the underdog Mexican Army in 1862 at the Battle of Puebla against the French.
Bars across St. John will be capitalizing on the celebration, offering nothing more than the usual, but wearing a sombrero. Cinco de Mayo is the day customer attitudes are directly proportional to the depth of the bartender’s lid. Ole!
