Stuff to do for Cinco de Mayo

Caroline on Crack via LAist has a great list of places to eat and drink today for Cinco de Mayo. Rush Street in Culver City – a place I like on non-alcholidays (Caroline on Crack’s word!) – is selling $1 tacos from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. tonight.¬† I love me some $1 tacos!
