Cinco De Mayo Celebration in Downtown Milwaukee at RIVALRY

Sure we, Rivalry Milwaukee, may not be your typical place to think about on Cinco De Mayo but we are sure to bring you a great time and fun celebration.

mexican-sombrero-transparent-clipart-6dw4io-clipartThis year we will have a BYOS event.  What does that mean?  Well, it is an acronym and it stands for: Bring Your Own Sombrero!  Why?  Because wearing a sombrero always makes things more fun.  So, at Rivalry, we will reward you for getting into the Holiday spirit and wearing your sombrero to the celebration this Friday, May 5, 2017 in the Third Ward Milwaukee.

Here are the details of the event:

For everyone who is wearing a sombrero this Cinco De Mayo at Rivalry, they will receive:

$1 TACOS and

$1 MARGARITAS

What a STEAL!  Now that’s what I am talking about.  Getting rewarded for being FUN and wanting to have a good time. *Disclaimer…Sombreros must be worn while at Rivalry in order to receive the huge “FUN” discounts.

The forecast for this Friday is looking OK (as of today as I write) so the patio will be open for the usual amazing outdoor patio dining.

Additional information and specials for those who do not want to be as festive:

If you are not wearing a sombrero to receive the above specials you still are able to participate in the following

HUGE 5′ Pinata – Yes, FIVE FOOT.  Yes, that is very large.  This pinata will not be your average pinata.  It will be filled with tons of cool stuff that may, or may not be suitable for children (depending on your parenting style) such as Lottery Tickets, little bottles of booze and other fun surprises.

Drink Specials:

$16 buckets of Modelo (not going to lie, this is my favorite Mexican beer)

$5 Margaritas

$3 Tacos

So, we will see you at Rivalry for the best downtown Milwaukee Cinco De Mayo Festival Celebration.

It is absolutely beautiful in downtown Milwaukee today and RIVALRY’s patio is open.  Yes, the patio that is right on the RiverWalk in the Third Ward.  Yes, the amazing riverfront patio with the downtown skyline views.  It is far too beautiful outside today to not take advantage of it and be outside on the patio all day long.

The winter was long and miserable and you deserve this weather while sipping a mimosa, bloody mary or house-made sangria.  Pick your favorite, enjoy some rays and beautiful views.

Hungry?  Try our amazing Brunch or grab a pizza.  Life can wait as you enjoy today outside.

Milwaukee Bucks – PLAYOFFS START TONIGHT!

milwaukee-bucksAlso on tap today: Your very own Milwaukee Bucks are taking on the Toronto Raptors in the first game of the playoffs.  Tip-off is at 4:30PM.  What perfect way to spend the day with brunch on the patio rolled into the first game of the NBA playoffs.  Rivalry is the perfect sports bar to catch all the NBA playoff action.

The Milwaukee Bucks had their first winning season since the 2009-2010 season and have a great chance to knock off the Toronto Raptors to move on to the second round of the playoffs.  Remember the 2000-2001 season when they made it to the Eastern Conference Finals?  The energy was amazing for those playoff series and we see the same with this young, electric Milwaukee Bucks team.
