El Camino Cantina and Bar Patrón by Rockpool – Sydney


El Camino Cantina and Bar Patrón by Rockpool are planning to remember Cinco de Mayo with a tequila-flavoured line-up of menu specials, $7.50 Margaritas all day, every day, $1000 worth of prize giveaways and a final fiesta to knock your sombreros off.

El Camino Cantina is celebrating Cinco de Mayo with $7.50 Margaritas all week, and incredible daily menu specials, in lead up to Cinco de Mayo. The countdown begins on Uno de Mayo, or Tuesday, 1 May, with a selection of $2 tacos also available all day. On Wednesday, Dos de Mayo, chicas and chicos can delight in 10 cent wings with any purchase of a 24 oz Margarita or chalice of house beer. On Thursday, Tres de Mayo, $5 guacamole is on offer all day, so diners can put the restaurant’s refillable baskets of chips to deliciously good use. On Friday, Quatro de Mayo, bring the working week to a close with an all-you-can-eat taco menu that includes a choice of appetisers, unlimited tacos, and churros with salted caramel dip for dessert ($52 pp).

Get ready for the biggest fiesta of the year, Cinco de Mayo, on Saturday, 5 May. Guests can expect brightly filled piñatas, vibrant decorations and a photo booth to capture the memories. RnB and Latin sensation Carlos C Major takes to the stage from 1pm to 4pm, followed by whimsical trio Mariachi from 5pm to 6pm, accompanied by a troop of traditional Mexican dancers. The fun goes late into the night with DJ Jay Mac stepping up to the decks from 7pm to 11pm and the music continuing until 1am. There’s $1000 worth of prizes to giveaway, with two $100 vouchers awarded to the best dressed Señor and Señoritas each night.
