Órale, vato... ¡Wassápenin!
It's Cinco de Mayo, amigos, that time of year when we all celebrate the defeat of the French in the Battle of Puebla by pounding shots of tequila.
So grab your sombreros and lucha libre masks for the seven best Cinco de Mayo fiestas this side of the border.
Askultura's Fourth-Annual Skanko de Mayo. Saturday, May 4, 6 p.m., at Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Miami; 305-757-1807; churchillspub.com. $10. A Star Wars-themed Cinco de Mayo party on the fourth of May? Sure, why not. Especially if there's a drunken waffle-eating contest and bands like Askultura, Stop the Presses, Vice City Rockers, and others competing in a "Ska Wars" competition. In the words of Luke Skywalker, "May the fourth be with you."

Mustache Party. Saturday, May 4, at Shots Miami, 311 NW 23rd St., Miami; 305-571-0439; shots-miami.com. Free. Killer mustaches never get enough credit. Well, until Cinco de Mayo comes along and people -- including the ladies -- want some lip fuzz of their own. And this Saturday, rad facial hair could win you a bottle of Herradura tequila at Shots. While only the bearer of the biggest 'stache will win, the rest of us get to join in on the mustache madness with Corona and tequila specials all night.
