It’s Cinco de Mayo, the day when we traditionally gather to eat tacos and drink margaritas and other foods and beverages of Mexican descent. (FYI: The holiday commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862.)
But with social distancing squashing our ability to have in-person fiestas, old amigos Diplo and Dillon Francis are teaming up with Corona (the beer) for a Cinco de Mayo livestream. Watch it via the Live Nation Twitter starting tonight at 9 p.m. EST/ 6 p.m. PST.
For every viewer that joins the virtual celebration, Corona will donate a dollar to the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund (RERF), matching up to $500,000, As added incentive, Corona and Postmates are offering free delivery on all food, drinks and convenience orders placed on May 5 between 10 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. local time, with no minimum charge required. Use the code “CINCO AT HOME” at checkout.
Diplo and Dillon Francis have become streaming stars during quarantine, doing their “Coronight Fever” sets from Diplo’s living room every Saturday night since the start of social distancing.
