In celebration of Cinco de Mayo and the Mexican Army's victory in 1862 in the Battle of Puebla, we enjoyed drinks at Hola! Downtown, which is open 11am-10pm, our favorite margarita was as always the Red Cactus. For dinner we couldn't pick just one favorite, but we were tied between the Shrimp Enchiladas and Halibut Tacos.
