It's everyone's favourite time of year - no, not Christmas. CINCO DE MAYO - obviously.
Celebrating the victory of the Mexican Army over the French, May 5 never fails to bring together those who appreciate the delectable delicacies of Mexico, namely Tacos and Tequila. (Yes, they deserve to be capitalised.)

Here's what the fave Neutral bay haunt has in store every day for the next SEVEN days. Block out your calendars.

Monday - Taco & Tequila Championship
SoCal's week-long festivities were not going to go unnoticed and it has sparked some rivalry between the other members of Applejack Hospitality including The Botanist in Kirribilli, Endeavour Tap Rooms from The Rocks and The Butler in Potts Point. GAME. ON. The Head Chefs of these iconic venues will come together in a championship battle to be judged by a panel Masterchef-style.
