This year, the popular Rapid City restaurant and bar plans to open at 10 a.m. on May 5 for a full-day Cinco de Murphy’s fiesta. “It’s nacho average Cinco party!” said manager Tony Demaro.
Bring some friends to join Señor Murphy in celebrating Mexican-American culture and experiences with a variety of food specials and festive activities. The first 50 people inside the door can kick start the day with a complementary margarita. Starting at noon, there will be hourly events, with the winners of each event getting to take their shot at a piñata filled with prizes.
Murphy’s will serve a special Cinco de Mayo menu all day, with traditional Mexican favorites including tacos, burritos, fajitas, nachos, and quesadillas – as well as a few unique Spanish dishes.
