    WeHo’s Rainbow District Gets Busy for Cinco De Mayo Festivities

    It was a busy Cinco de Mayo celebration at West Hollywood’s Rainbow District this past Sunday, with some bars going the extra mile to celebrate Mexico’s victory over the Second French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, led by General Ignacio Zaragoza (in case you were wondering).

    Schmitty’s West Hollywood had Mexican fiesta banner decorations (known as papel picado) and offered a taco stand near their entrance. Trunks had drink specials, attracting their regulars. Revolver offered tacos, drink specials, and tunes by DJ Josh Peace and DJ Ernie Vee. Micky’s WeHo went all out with their decor, turning the entire nightclub into a Mexican party straight out of Tijuana, Mexico, courtesy of Stefano Rosso with piñatas, gogo dancers, beats by Ivan Mariscal, and they served tacos and hot dogs. Every day is Cinco de Mayo at Fiesta Cantina, so they didn’t do much in the decoration department. Hi Tops didn’t decorate either, but it was busy throughout the day. The Abbey WeHo and The Chapel had the second-largest decor next to Micky’s with piñatas, live Mexican musicians, and gogo dancers. Mother Lode had drink specials, dancers, and live DJs throughout the day. Beaches had drag shows. Rocco’s WeHo had Ranch Water specials all day made with Casamigos & Topo Chico with Lime, with special performances by the Roccettes.

    Mayor John Erickson and Vice Mayor Chelsea Byers were both spotted at Rocco’s WeHo joining the celebration. They ran into Jeff Consoletti, the founder, and CEO of JJLA, the producer of WeHo Pride and the Outloud Festival.

    The winner by far was Micky’s WeHo in terms of sound, crowd, gogo dancers, and photo ops. They also had the Big Willy Ride, which was a mechanical bull, only it was in the shape of a… big willy.

    More popular in the United States than in Mexico, Cinco de Mayo has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture. The day is sometimes mistaken for Mexican Independence Day—the most important national holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16, commemorating the Cry of Dolores in 1810, which initiated the Mexican War of Independence from Spain. Cinco de Mayo has been referenced and featured in entertainment media, and has become an increasingly global celebration of Mexican culture, cuisine, and heritage.
