What is Cinco de Mayo? It's the best reason to party (May 5th) at the Cinco de Mayo bash hosted by 212, NYC's interactive advertising club. Sure there will be lots of Cinco de Mayo activities in New York and Cinco de Mayo food (margaritas!)
What's the origin of Cinco de Mayo? Whether you spell it Cinco de Mayo, Sinco Demio, Cinco de Mio, or Sinco de Mayo, it's a great Mexican holiday. Here's a very brief Cinco de Mayo history:
In the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, an underdog Mexican army defeated the massive, well-trained French army, arguably the most powerful in the world (that year). The French lost the battle but won the war. That can't stop us from celebrating Cinco de Mayo traditions, though:

A few reasons why you should scrap whatever plans you have on May 5th to party with 212:
1) Touch Night Club (Midtown Manhattan)
2) Hot 97's DJ Camilo on the ones & twos
3) Open Bar
4) VIP floor (more on that later)
5) Dance performance by Tre Armstrong (from “How She Move”)

And there will be more surprises the night of that 212 can't share now but would be a shame to miss.
