Let's get one thing straight: Cinco De Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day. It celebrates Mexico defeating France at the Battle Of Puebla. They don't even really celebrate in Mexico, but we SURE do here. And there are so many things to do in the Bay this year. Whatever you decide to do, be safe. If you need a ride home, there is a law office in SF offering free ride-shares. Take advantage!
