May 5 is celebrated in both Mexico and America as the Day of the Battle of Puebla, in which the Mexican army defeated the French in 1862. WRECO staff celebrated Cinco de Mayo with a festive Mexican-inspired potluck in Walnut Creek and a trip to a new restaurant in Oakland this year.

In Walnut Creek, staff played foosball, ping pong, and destroying a piñata filled with candy.

In Walnut Creek, the nacho bar turned out to be a huge hit, with Brecken’s homemade margarita mix and Joyce’s watermelon agua fresca being the winners.

On Friday, May 3rd, WRECO celebrated Cinco de Mayo at Xolo, a taqueria located at 19th Street and Telegraph Avenue.  Celebrating this event were members of the Oakland and Walnut Creek staff, who enjoyed eating tacos, birria (a Mexican stew), chips and guacamole, and other Mexican taqueria style foods.  This event provided a casual environment that allowed WRECO staff to gather, enjoy food and beer, and celebrate the holiday.

The Oakland staff gathered at Xolo Taqueria for drinks and appetizers to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day, which is actually celebrated on September 16.
