Cinco de Mayo in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill (and, well, everywhere) will be an understated affair this year. You’re not likely to find yourself on a crowded patio sharing pitchers of margaritas with friends.
But you can still capture that “south of the border” spirit. We’re starting a list of whatever Cinco deals we can find, most of them for food delivery.
Some of these deals either require or recommend pre-ordering, so don’t delay!
