WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., April 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This year, Cinco de Mayo finally falls on a Friday and Dos Equis is giving fans everywhere the tools they need to ignite their fiestas early.

On April 27, fans in New York City will experience this year's hottest Cinco de Mayo Party as Dos Equis brings "Spice Up Your Cinco" to life in a way only Dos Equis can. Inspired by the bold colors, flavors and unmistakable bustle of a Mexican street market, guests will be captivated by the sights, sounds, and tastes of a busy day spent at a market south of the border. To accentuate the brand's "Stay Thirsty" mindset and to continue to encourage our drinkers to seek interesting experiences, Dos Equis is enlisting legendary DJ Questlove to spin a fiery soundtrack for the night. Attendees will also have the chance to mingle with The Most Interesting Man in the World.
"Cinco de Mayo is the celebration of the year for Dos Equis as we share our heritage, the Mexican spice of life, and a real Mexican cerveza with our drinkers," said Andrew Katz, VP of Marketing for Dos Equis.
