There’s so many ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Chicago, from exploring Mexican cuisines to partying:

A mother is the most important person in anyone’s life. Someone who carried us in their womb for nine months, gave birth and raised us. Biological or not, a mother figure is someone who cares for us deeply and gives us the world. Mother’s day falls every second Sunday in May, to celebrate mothers all over the world, but everyday should always be a mother’s day. So, buy your mom flowers, take her to lunch or dinner and tell her how much you love them. Here’s some places to spend time with your mother:

Whiskey, a drink that echoes class and sophistication. Originated somewhere in Ireland and Scotland in the early 1000s, when the lack of vineyards to make wine forced the people to turn to grain mash. Ever since then whiskey has grown even more popular globally. Now, World Whiskey Day is celebrated every third Saturday of May, or May 18 this year. Enjoy Whiskey Day in some of Chicago’s finest bars


Wine is one of the oldest alcoholic beverages known to man. It’s been around for over 6000 years and symbolizes wealth, prestige, integrity and union of people. The National Wine Day is celebrated every 25th of May. It will be a great time to taste different wines, so cheers to some of the best wines in Chicago’s restaurants and bars.


The 1st of May is a commemoration of the labor movement that is observed internationally every year. This historic day started on May 1st 1886 in Chicago, when thousands of unionists, reformers, socialists, anarchists, and ordinary workers walked off their jobs and urged fellow workers to strike as a movement to advocate for an 8-hour work day. Sadly the movement got violent when police shot and killed strikers while radical strikers threw a bomb at the police. Thus, the Haymarket Riot ensues. Today we commemorate May Day to respect and appreciate the struggles of labor.
