Cinco de Drinko brings a Mexican flavor to May at Fathoms

Let’s be real – most people don’t know to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely 1862 victory over the French at the battle of Puebla on May 5.  They do know great deals on delicious food and drink from south of the border are worthy of a holiday. In that spirit, Fathoms Restaurant & Bar invites Southwest Florida’s residents and visitors to Cinco de Drinko.
 
If it’s five o’clock somewhere, make it 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 5 for the start of some major chippin’, dippin’ and margarita sippin’ and unique surprises. Enjoy specials on refreshing margaritas, authentic recipes that some of Fathom’s kitchen staff will share from their home country and an extraordinary performance of traditional Mexican Indian dance from Danza Azteca Guadalupana, happening at 6 and 7:30 p.m.
 
Then on Sunday, May 8, treat mom to a scenic waterfront Mother’s Day feast, beginning at 11:30 a.m. Enjoy sumptuous selections from Fathom’s extensive menu, from New Zealand lamb lollipops, to a Caribbean lobster roll with avocado, mango and chipotle mayo and chayote slaw, to 12 varieties of signature gourmet pizzas or Fathom’s famous Bourbon Street seafood mac and cheese. Chefs Fabrice Deletrain and Benjamin Voisin are also planning some extra special Mother’s Day specials featuring creative applications of traditional techniques, colorful presentations and fresh meats, seafoods and locally sourced seasonal produce.
 
A new summer cocktail menu featuring handmade infused liquers is now available, too. And what Mother’s Day would be complete without chocolates? Every mom is sure to feel appreciated with a complimentary work of edible art from Norman Love Confections.
