Postmates Bite-sized news we think you’ll like

Since it’s hard to keep track of what day it is, you gotta love a holiday with the date in the name. That’s right, Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow and we’ve got some ideas on how to celebrate.

In this edition of The Post Up, we’re taking a look at people and communities stepping up to make Cinco de Mayo special for local restaurants. Plus when you get to the end, there’s a special promo code just for you.

Quick Bites
  • You’re Invited to a Fiesta: Tune in tomorrow to Altísimo Live—a music fest in support of immigrant farmworkers featuring Eva Longoria, J Balvin, Steve Aoki, and more.

May the 4th be With You
Not That Long Ago in a Room Next To The One You Are In Now
We’re assuming that’s where you’ve currently been binging Star Wars movies, but we could be wrong. One thing’s certain: May 4th is Star Wars Day and people are taking the celebration pretty seriously.

For starters, Disney+ is making their catalog complete by adding the 9th film in the franchise, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, to their streaming platform today. They’re also releasing Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian which is a docuseries that goes behind the scenes of the show that made Baby Yoda a star.

Speaking of the cutest being in the galaxy, there are a bevvy of toys with his face on it being released today. From figurines to plushes to waffle makers (yes, you read that right), the Baby Yoda trend is still in full swing.

But our favorite Star Wars story of the moment has to be this bizarre tale of special Coke bottles specifically made to sell at the Galaxy’s Edge theme park popping up in Alabama. The employees have no idea how they got there and some superfans drove hours just to pick up a case. Random accident or the force at work? We’ll never know.
Taco Tuesday
As if you Need an Excuse to Eat Tacos
Taco Tuesday and Cinco de Mayo are joining forces this year. Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican heroship and yes, Taco Tuesday is a thing that happens every week, but it’s still a big deal. So what we’re saying is, if you don’t eat tacos on Cinco de Mayo, you’re going to regret it.

If you don’t already have a local spot you love, don’t worry. Because we have a few taco places we’ve been meaning to recommend:

First up is Cinco de Mayo Mexican Restaurant in Nashville, TN. Yes, this Mexican restaurant loves Cinco so much, they named themselves after it. Go ahead and get a Cinco de Mayo Combination with 1 taco, 1 enchilada and 1 burrito. Because you deserve to have it all.

In LA, Mezcalero has a Taco & Cocktail Package you won’t be able to resist. Choose between six different tequila drinks (we like the Pepiño Margarita) to go alongside your 8 tacos. You can pick a different protein for each or just go with Al Pastor across the board.

Then make a stop at Lucha Libre Gourmet Tacos in San Diego. Fun fact: Mole is the official dish of Cinco de Mayo. Here you have to try the Mole Taco Box, plus the Squash Tacos are always a hit with vegetarians.
