Happy Friday! Don't drink too much at First Friday, because Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby will go head to head in a battle for your hearts and stomachs tomorrow. Here's a quick rundown of all the action -- and if you know of any Drinco de Mayo party/deals we missed, feel free to post them in the comments section below.

Ole, y'all!

El Diablo, 101 Broadway, and Sketch, 11 West First Avenue, have teamed up to present Cinco Central, an all -day outdoor fiesta beginning at noon and ending at 10 p.m., with an after-party at La Rumba. Festivities include live Mexican wrestling, music from Cojunto Colores and pinatas for the kids.

Chloe Mezze Lounge, 1445 Market Street, is hosting Derby Girls & Bourbon Boys, the "season's hottest patio party" from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Of course, derby chic attire is preferred.

Cinco de Mayo Burlesque Fiesta at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret, 1601 Arapahoe Street. The 21-and-over event starts at 8 p.m. and costs $25; tickets are available online.

Ale House at Amato's, 2501 16th Street, will host its second annual Kentucky Derby Party from 1 to 6 p.m., and you'll need a big hat. Amato's will also be serving cans of Ska Brewing's seasonal Mexican Logger in honor of Cinco de Mayo. There will be prizes for best dressed and best hat -- and a chance to win free beer for a month from Breckenridge Brewery. A portion of the day's proceeds will be donated to the Denver Dumb Friends League and Harmony Equine Center.
