It’s Independence Day for all our friends south of the border, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t party rockin’ it up right here in the good old U.S.A.!

The gringos reading this right now might think that Cinco de Mayo is the big holiday, but on this date back in 1810, the Mexicans won their freedom from Spanish rule.

There’s plenty of celebrations going down this weekend and we’ve compiled a handy dandy list so you know where it’s gonna be crackin’!
