The Park is going to be your party headquarters this week, not just for Cinco de Mayo but beyond. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo at The Park Sunday, May 5, with Tequila Mania from noon to 6 p.m., complete with mariachi bands, authentic street tacos and your choice of tequila, culminating in a street taco battle between chefs from New York-New York’s restaurants and The Park’s. It’s free to the public.

The fun at The Park continues into the week, including the third annual Picnic in the Park on May 11, featuring live music and offerings from such world-class chefs as Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Michael Mina, Masaharu Morimoto, Roy Choi, Bryan and Michael Voltaggio, Susan Feniger, Julian Serrano, Shawn McClain, and MGM Grand executive pastry chef Florent Cheveau. In addition to wine pairings by master sommelier Jason Smith, enjoy cocktails by mixologist Craig Schoettler. Tickets start at $199. To order tickets or for more information, go to
