Live music by Denver punk band Rat King at 6 p.m. In case it rains, they’ll have tents set up — so no excuses!

Que Bueno Suerte on Cinco
Location: 1518 S. Pearl St., Denver
When: May 5, 4-11 p.m.

Rally your friends and head to Que Bueno Suerte! for Cinco de Mayo specials that will make your taste buds happy. And your liver, well, it may not be as stoked. The eclectic Mexican eatery in Platt Park is offering all the best ingredients to a great day: tacos, tequila and beer. Need we say more? Enjoy beer and shot specials for $5 and two tacos for the same price on May 5. Not to get all fancy on you, but try the barbacoa de Borrego with guajillo pepper-steamed lamb neck and cheek topped with radish-cilantro-onion salad. Yum.

Punch Bowl Social probably isn’t the first venue that comes to mind on Cinco de Mayo, but hear us out: It has a Watermelon Polo Bowl made with Sauza Blue Reposado tequila, Denver’s Teakoe watermelon spearmint tea, watermelon shrub, housemade strawberry syrup and fresh lime juice. Swoon. Once you earn your liquid courage, belt it out in the private karaoke rooms or hit the arcade for vintage video and pinball games. Call 303-765-2695 for reservations.

Put this on your social calendars. Lola Coastal Mexican is kicking off summer with the ninth annual Picnic of the Pig on Cinco de Mayo. Lola’s own Jamey Fader and Sharif Villa Cruz will collaborate with five other talented chefs in Denver (Brandon Foster, Amos Watts, Kevin Gross, Michael Nirenberg and Sam Pepper) on a special a la cart menu that celebrates all things swine.

Cinco de Mayo Celebration with Tasty Grooves

When: May 5, 6:30-9:30 p.m.

If you’re more of a wino than a drink-tequila-and-hit-the-floor type, you’re in luck. Wrap up your work day and head over to Denver’s urban winery Bonacquisti Wine for a Cinco de Mayo party. You can come early for happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m. with $5 tap wines and apps. And stay for sweet beats by Latin soul band the Tasty Grooves.

Cinco de Mayo Party
Location: Howl at the Moon Denver, 1735 19th St.
When: May 5, 7 p.m.-2 a.m.

Howl at the Moon Denver will be offering buckets of blue margaritas. Yeah, buckets. Because … well, do you need a reason to have margarita buckets on a Friday AND Cinco de Mayo? We think not. The buckets go for $20/each. Patrons will also enjoy $4 Corona Extras, $5 Cuervo margaritas and shots.

Cocktails and Cacti Fiesta!
Location: Salt & Grinder, 3609 W. 32nd Ave., Denver
When: May 5, 5:30-6:30 p.m., followed up by treats at the Perfect Petal (across the street) from 6:30-8 p.m.
Cost: $65/person

We’re not sure about planting cacti when you’re drinking cocktails, but it sounds like such a crazy idea that we really want to attend this unique Cinco fiesta. Salt & Grinder is Chef Frank Bonanno’s New Jersey-style deli and salumeria. The Perfect Petal is teaming up with the deli to host a hands-on (literally) cacti planting and cocktail sipping fiesta. While you get down with some margaritas, you’ll get to plant four succulents in a container for your new garden.

Pinata Cakes for Cinco de Mayo

Maggie & Molly’s Sweet Life
Location: 2908 E. 6th Ave., Denver
When: May 5, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Put down your sombrero for a moment, hombre. It’s still a Friday, which means you’re at work until the end of your shift. But that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate sober in the office while sugaring up your boss and co-workers. Maggie & Molly’s Sweet Life is going outside of the box and offering Cinco de Mayo sugar cookies for $36/dozen and piñata mini cakes to take to your afternoon meeting for $32 for an order of eight. The cakes are filled with margarita butter cream and covered with vanilla butter cream and decorated like a pretty Mexican senorita’s skirt. Inside, the geniuses in the kitchen cut a hole and added sprinkles, like a Mexican piñata.

First Friday Cinco de Mayo Cultural Walk on Tennyson
When: May 5, 5-10 p.m.

This is a low-key, more sober-y event to attend on Cinco de Mayo. First Friday season is here and you can celebrate with lots of local art, shopping, drinks, food and local Berkeley flavor in Denver. The First Friday Cultural Walk is a long tradition on Tennyson Street with the latest art exhibits, galleries and restaurant specials.

El Vez

El Vez, The Mexican Elvis at Ophelia’s
Location: 1215 20th St., Denver
When: May 6, 9 p.m.-midnight

Do you have plans for Saturday night? Well, you do now! El Vez the Mexican Elvis is performing at Ophelia’s and we’re already throwing on his hits on Spotify to get us amped. We’re hoping this isn’t your first El Vez concert, but if it is, we won’t judge. He’s the Latin sensation who has appeared on “The Tonight Show,” “Oprah,” “MTV” and more. He brings a social-political-Las Vegas-via-Memphis by way of Mexico rock ‘n’ roll to the stage. Get jazzed.
