It's that time of year again when the sun manages to peek out from behind the clouds in honor of the Mexican army's triumph over the French in 1862 (classic France), and a bit of that "tonight we drink for a special occasion" magic sets in.

So don your culturally appropriated costumes, order up a round of tequila shots and get going. Here are the five of the best pinata-tastic places to down margaritas and lose that $60 sombrero. You're welcome, Mexico.

1. Caliente, Tsim Sha Tsui
Prep for your night here with $10 tacos and $20 tequila shots before moving onto the more rowdy areas.

2. Coyote, Wan Chai
Make your way to Wan Chai to check out the 3.5 meter beer bong they've arranged in honor of the celebration.

3. Jinjuu, Lan Kwai Fong
Throw a korean twist into the mix and give your stomach a change of scenery before you hit another round of drinking.

4. Brickhouse, Lan Kwai Fong
By the time your wallet has gone dry, turn to Brickhouse for just what you need: a $2,000 bar tab awarded to the best costume.

5. Lily & Bloom, Lan Kwai Fong
Stop by for the after-party where Little Burro owner, Roger de Leon, aka DJ Re:Flex, will be DJing a Mexican-inspired set.
