Feliz Cinco de Mayo - Richmond Round-up
Hope you're all celebrating with a frosty pitcher of margaritas or a cervesa or two!
If you're at a loss for a location for fiestas in the Richmond District, this shortlist should help.
Tia Margarita, 300 19th Ave., 415-752-9274
Family atmosphere, large dinners, and roomy booths draw local crowds. The friendly, welcoming bar serves up killer top shelf margaritas - Sauza Hornitos, Cointreau & Fresh Lime.
Tommy's Mexican Restaurant
5929 Geary Blvd,(415) 387-4747 - Normally closed on Tuesdays, but open for the holiday.
Famous for its exhaustive selection of tequilas, this Richmond District Landmark also serves tasty Mexican American fare at reasonable prices. The real enticement, however, is that lethal latin intoxicant. The last story I heard about the bar involved a drinking session with the owner which led to a later overnight in the drunk tank.
Pancho's Salsa Bar & Grill
3440 Geary Blvd, (415) 387-8226
A customer favorite at this Inner Richmond taqueria is the borracho burrito - and it should be in high demand today. Happy hour specials include $2 beers and discounted guacamole and chips.
!Buen Provecho a todos!
