Celebrate Cinco de Mayo With Margs at Malo

It's Cinco de Mayo tomorrow, and that means plenty of tacos and margaritas. Malo, an upscale Latin American-themed restaurant downtown, has rolled out new margarita flavors, including Mezcal-A-Rita, Tamarind Ginger and Strawberry Thyme.  

Located in the former downtown fire station and the current headquarters of the
Des Moines Social Club, Malo is another hot spot in the George Formaro/Orchestrate Management empire.
With pisco sours, mojitos and a daiquiri-style sip that pays homage to Hemingway’s time in Cuba, the drink menu celebrates the cocktail culture of Latin America. The food menu showcases Mexican favorites, including tacos made from fresh-pressed tortillas and slow-braised meats. Also find signature dishes ranging from the refined (Carnitas Clasico—a super tortilla made with Iowa pork) to the irreverent (Tot’chos—tots loaded up, nacho-style).

There will be plenty of Mexican foods, artwork, live music, dancing and family activities.
