Ay caramba! It's Friday, y'all. Finally.

In a few hours, it'll be time to unleash your inner Mexican. We know we have one (no, really, we're Mexican). During this time of the month, gringos come out from their St. Patty's Day shells. Cinco de Mayo is the day we separate the men from the boys -- with tequila. It's a time-honored tradition, and if you can't handle your Patron, we kindly ask you to go home, bro.

You have exactly one day to prep for the shit-show that will fester along the streets of the Big Mango tomorrow. Lucky for your 9-to-5, you have all day Sunday to recover. If worse comes to worst, you can always just call in sick (say you ate too many worms). So bring out those fake mustaches, dust off that old sombrero, don white linen pants and a poncho. Let it all hang out this weekend, amigos.

Without further ado, we give the 12 best things to do in our fake Mexican city, meng.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
