Miami Cinco de Mayo Survival Guide

Esteban Restaurant in Monterey will be serving brunch from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Mother's Day

To clear the air, George Stephanopoulos brings you a brief history of Cinco de Mayo and the 1862 Battle of Puebla. The victory provided a significant morale boost to the Mexican people and came to serve as a symbol of the country's spirit and perseverance.

Cinco de Mayo might not actually have anything to do with the start of summer (technically that's not until the end of June), but it definitely feels like the ideal day to usher in warm, sunny weather.

Law enforcement agencies in Southern California will be out in force Saturday looking for impaired drivers on Cinco de Mayo. In the US the date has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture.

Cinco de Mayo - which literally translates to "May 5" - is not Mexican Independence Day, which is celebrated on September 16, and marks the start of the war of Mexican independence from Spain. Whatever your style, here's everything you need to know to make it your best Cinco de Mayo ever. The battle wasn't a decisive turning point, and the French ended up taking Mexico City a year later and ruling for about three more years. And if you're a Kentuckian who took to the Internet to find out when the Mexican commemorative holiday is, you're reportedly among the majority. It is a rather minor holiday and observed mostly in the state of Puebla.

Cinco de Mayo has evolved over the years into a celebration of Mexican culture, especially Mexican cuisine and music.
