Contrary to popular belief, Mexico does not celebrate its independence day on Cinco de Mayo. Mexico's El Grito de Independencia is actually today, and a couple of places will be celebrating.
El Diablo, 101 Broadway, will offer a special "El Grito" menu all day, as well as late-night drink specials and $1 tacos after 11 p.m. Call 303-954-0324.
Mezcal, 3230 East Colfax Avenue, will host an El Grito Street Fair through Friday, September 16, with food and drink specials, live music and more. Call 303-322-5219 or go to www.mezcalcolorado.com for more info.
