Cinco de Mayo is often referred to as Mexican Independence Day but don’t be fooled. Mexico's Independence Day is actually in September! Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army's victory over France at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
At The Lyric we took part in the festivities by throwing a Cinco de Mayo fiesta!! Residents were greeted by streamers, chili peppers filled with candy and margaritas…salty rim and all! The bar was converted into a nacho bar with every topping imaginable.
It was a gorgeous Seattle evening and with a margarita and loaded nachos in hand, residents made their way up the rooftop deck to take in the sunset and relax. A fitting celebration!
