It’s officially only one day until Cinco de Mayo weekend begins at Swanky’s Taco Shop.
One day until Swanky’s Taco Shop gets to celebrate its favorite holiday of the year. One day until we get to break out THESE Swanky’s koozies. One day until we get to drink Patrón margaritas on the patio while simultaneously listening to some amazing LIVE music and watching fellow guests attempt to eat a 3.5 lb. Chalupacabra taco. One day until THESE ”I’d Hit That” t-shirts go on sale.
Are you ready for this?
We have a weekend full of festivities planned for all three of our Swanky’s Taco Shop locations.
First up, we have our East Memphis Swanky’s, located at Poplar & Colonial. We’ll be kicking the Cinco de Mayo festivities off on Saturday, May 4th, with the premiere Chalupacabra taco eating contest at 1:00 pm. Come early, grab a seat on the patio—or under the Cinco tent—and watch fellow guests attempt to finish off a 3.5 lb. taco, served up special for this event only. We’ll be giving out a $100 Swanky’s Gift Card to the first place winner.
The 3.5 lb. taco is layered with 2 lbs. of ground beef, lettuce, cheese, pico de gallo & sour cream and comes accompanied by a shot of Swanky’s signature habanero Sauce. Download a pdf of the official rules and entry form HERE. To enter, turn the entry form in at the restaurant before Saturday, May 4th.
Following the taco eating contest at East Memphis, we have a full line-up of LIVE music at our Poplar/Colonial location:
The Memphis Cinco de Mayo party continues into Sunday at our Germantown (Poplar/Kirby) location with another day full of LIVE music on May 5th:
