Cinco De Mayo 2019: Shaw’s El Rey

This Cinco de Mayo, El Rey is ringing in the holiday with a few of your favorite things: margaritas, mariachi … and an ice luge.

[Hey! Have you seen my post on custom-made MTM clothing? Take a look, and if you place an order, they will add a free custom shirt. Just tell them The Washington Lobbyist sent you.]

DC.’s favorite taco spot is offering tons of Cinco fun, from a Cointreau-exclusive house margs menu to a live mariachi band to the $4 Carnitas Taco del Dia (marinated and braised pulled pork, chopped Spanish onion, tomatillo-avocado salsa, pickled jalapeno and cilantro).

El Rey’s beloved full menu of a half dozen of the city’s most mouthwatering tacos — al pastor, carne asada, thai shrimp, de pescado, queso con hongos and adobo chicken — will also be up for grabs, as well as plenty of other signature plates and sides, such as tamales, nachos, elote, chips & guac and more.

The celebration kicks off on Sunday, May 5 at noon and lasts till 1:30am — or until the ice luge melts. For more information, visit or follow El Rey on Instagram at @elrey_dc.
