5 de Mayo Celebrations in Houston


Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations. Cinco de Mayo traditions include parades, mariachi music performances and street festivals in cities and towns across the United States being Houston one of the biggest celebration. We decided to go out and share with you our celebration with Agua de Piedra:

We had an Amazing Tequila dinner with Mr. Ruben Aceves Global Brand Ambassador for Tequila Herradura in one of the best if not the best Chef owned Mexican restaurant in Houston.

First the cocktail hour with perfect Margaritas, Top Shelf frozen Margaritas with appetizers in a perfect weather patio.

A four course dinner with a great and prodigious dishes including quail, pipian tamales, steak, etc; paired with Herradura Silver, Herradura Reposado, Herradura Double Barrel Reposado, Herradura Anejo Seleccion Suprema, Monica Richards, Beverage Director own selection of tequila only design from Herradura to Picos Restaurant, and to clean the palate our amazing Agua de Piedra.

Do not let me even start with the best Mexican type dessert I had in years.

I do not have the words to thank all the staff we had a family atmosphere and felt like our home.
