  • John Gonzalez and Amy Sherman of MLive are looking for Michigan's Best Mexican Restaurant. Make your nominations now. Deadline is noon

Chef Sammy Muscovic from Selena Rosa Mexicana Restaurant on the Upper East Side stopped by to show us how to make some dishes you'll be proud to have at your Cinco de Mayo party. Mexico's most important national holiday is celebrated September 16, commemorating the Cry of Dolores (Grito de Dolores) that initiated the 1810 war for Mexican independence from Spain.

The event organizers say today is a celebration for Mexico, but also a way to bring different communities together. In Mexico, the commemoration of the battle continues to be mostly ceremonial, such as through military parades. So, a little poignant, eh?

Woodburn celebrates its 13th annual Cinco de Mayo celebration for three days May 4-6 Cinco de Mayo celebrations this year open with a performance by Nellie Muir Elementary School teachers and students and Woodburn High School Mariachi Friday morning, May 4.

"If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI", the agency stated. Heck, you can even try to learn some if you like.


Those having a hard time choosing between the two may be pleased to hear that in true NYC fashion - you don't have to!

Consider the real-world repercussions of your political choices and how they affect Mexicans.

The Cinco de Mayo celebrations go until 7 pm tonight and continue Sunday at Tautphaus park from 11 am to 7 pm.
