Once again you fellow chowhounds have not failed me, therefore I am coming to you with another question.
There will be approximately 5-10 local friends getting together for Cinco de Mayo and one friend is new to our group and is coming in from England. We would like to show them what it's like to celebrate Cinco de Mayo here in LA. Any suggestions on where to take someone from the other side of the pond to experience their first Cinco de Mayo celebration? He'll be staying over on the West Side, but most of us live from Harbor City, Silver Lake and the Pasadena area.
