Anejo is the place to celebrate Cinco De Mayo and although indoor dining has been prohibited, that won’t likely change. Depending on the weather, thirsty Calgarians will be able to hit the 4th street resto for a drink or two, guac and tacos on their patio. In the event that it rains though, they’ll still be selling their margarita kits for a lower-key at-home fiesta – so pre-order now, just in case!
