The beers were cold and the sombreros were a plenty, as hundreds crowded into the Chronic Cantina at Costa Mesa’s Triangle Square Tuesday to celebrate the latest reason to drink on a weekday afternoon.
By 5 p.m. the line outside the taco hot spot on the second level of Triangle Square was beginning to grow. Servers were rushing around with trays of Mexican beers like Corona, Dos Equis and Pacifico, the beverage of the day for everyone celebrating Cinco de Mayo.
The national Mexican holiday, commemorating a victory over French forces in 1862, was on the minds of virtually no one inside the Cantina on Tuesday. Everyone was there to drink and spend time with Kevin and Bean, beloved morning and afternoon deejays on KROQ.
