Hola from Connecticut

Greetings from Chilly CT! My husband and I have been traveling to the Roo for 4 years now....
PDC is a more recent find for us, we have been twice and will be returning for our third stay this May.
We will be there for Cinco de Mayo and wondered if you kind folks could share the inside scoop on best places to party or is the whole town hopping for this festivity??
Thanks in advance for any info!

Hi! I'm from CT too...Glastonbury originally but most recently Vernon. Where are you from?

Cinco de Mayo isn't really celebrated in most parts of Mexico. It is celebrated in the state of Puebla (I believe) but not traditionally celebrated elsewhere...for some reason it's marketed as a big holiday in the U.S.

But...the bars catering to expats will take advantage of Cinco de Mayo and will turn it into a celebration of sorts. Just another reason to kick the party up a notch. Not like we need a real reason around here.

Check out the Peeps week thread for the May crazies (peeps stuff) on front page.....we have a daytime beach bar crawl on Monday, the 5th. Should be one hell of a good time.
