Celebrate Cinco de Mayo @ Black Swan (Cisne Negro)

Cozumel Restaurant might be long gone, but that doesn’t mean that the building’s new proprietors can’t take advantage of their sprawling patio for Cinco de Mayo festivities.

The Black Swan is keeping the longstanding tradition alive at 152 Elmwood Avenue, with Mexican-style finger foods (tacos, tortas and empanadas) and drinks (tequila, beer or margaritas).

If you’re planning on doing Cinco de Mayo up right, then you need a big patio on the sunny side of the street to enhance the party vibe.
