It’s time to pick out a fiesta-ready Zoom background for your virtual happy hour: Cinco de Mayo falls on Taco Tuesday next week. Planning to cook at home? Tune in on Instagram at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 5, for a special edition of Cooking Live with Boston Magazine Events, which will host Citrus & Salt chef Jason Santos for a dinner demo accompanied by tequila-spiked cocktails. But if you’d rather leave the margarita mixers and taco toppings to the professionals, check out these curbside pickup and delivery options that’ll help you recreate restaurant-level Cinco de Mayo celebrations at home.

Taco Tuesday Delivery from WECO Hospitality

When chef Gavin Lambert was laid off from Woods Hill Table last month, he launched a new meal delivery service out of its Concord kitchen with his girlfriend, Rachel Amiralian. As WECO Hospitality, the duo prepares weekly, restaurant-quality meals ($8-$14) available to newsletter subscribers—including a popular taco Tuesday offering. For Cinco de Mayo, the package comes with a special cocktail kit addition, complete with some Spindrift bubbles as an alcohol-free option. For dinner, it’ll be short rib barbacoa tacos, salsa verde, refried black beans, and corn tortilla with easy toasting instructions. Sign up for the email list for a chance to order—all the info will hit your inbox Sunday at 2 p.m. Delivery will be scheduled around Boston and surrounding suburbs, or you can opt for curbside pickup at Woods Hill Table in Concord.
