Bet you didn’t even know Mexico and France ever fought each other, did you? In the U.S., Cinco de Mayo is mostly celebrated with cervezas , tequila, and food, so you can be somewhat forgiven. Maybe read up on Mexican history while enjoying one of these celebrations: • Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in pride style with two-for-one drinks all day, including specials on Don Julio tequila, an unlimited taco buffet, and a live mariachi band. The celebration begins at noon Thursday at 2426 Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors. • It’s back, baby. The highly coveted Mexican Standoff specialty release — a porter flavored with cinnamon, pepper, and choco-late — will be tapped on Cinco de Mayo. You can also find Scorpion IPA, made with scor-pion peppers; the Saigon Blonde cucumber ale, flavored with a touch of heat; and a new tart and tangy Mango Habanero Weisse. Ap-propriately, the Tacos Veracruz food truck will serve from 4 to 10 p.m. The celebration takes place from 2 to 10 p.m. Thursday at 2900 High Ridge Road in Boynton Beach. • Join the guys at 26 Degree Brewing Company for an evening of beer, mariachis, tacos, and fun. Live mariachi music will set the tone for the day, when, at 7:30 p.m., a special MexZiko’s rage will be tapped, while BC Tacos will be onsite with plenty of tacos. The celebration takes place from 11 a.m. to midnight Thursday at 2600 E. Atlantic Blvd. in Pompano Beach. • A special Cinco de Meatball fiesta will go down at Fork & Balls, with $5 meatballs and $5 Ballsy margaritas made with Tan-teo tequila infused with mango, pineapple, guanabana, and a dash of jalapeño with a cayenne pepper salt rim.

A BURR UNDER ALL SADDLES

In an era of microaggressions, safe spaces, and university political correctness, Bill Burr must seem like an insensitive, filterless bully — which is precisely what defines his appeal among those who haven’t drunk the Kool-Aid of faux outrage. Instead of a stick lodged up his ass, there’s a proverbial stick in his hand at all times, poking himself, his audience, politicians, religious leaders, athletes, racists, minorities, the handicapped, child predators, children — no group is verboten from Burr’s pungent observations, drawn from what he proudly calls “uninformed logic.” This undersells the intelligence buried beneath the profanity and uncomfortable button-pushing: Really, he’s part of a long line of smart and savage comedy dating back to George Carlin and Bill Hicks and manifesting today in Louis C.K. and Joe Rogan. Like these fellow legends, he’s considered a “comedian’s comedian” for a reason, gaining popularity among his peers for his fearless determination to swim against the tide of trends and styles. And though a comic with a podcast is as common as an Alaskan with a meth problem, Burr’s Monday Morning Podcast is seriously one of the funniest, most caffeinated blasts of humor you’ll experience in any given week, with each show inspiring material for future tours.

See this comedy rebel’s latest jaunt at 8 p.m. Friday at Hard Rock Live, located at 1 Seminole Way in Hollywood. Tickets cost $40-$85. Call 800-745-3000 or visit myhrl.com. JOHN THOMASON

That same smug mug served well for his portrayal of Jeff Winger on the much-loved college-themed comedy Community. But when both of those long-held roles wrapped up in 2015 after 11 years on the former and 110 episodes on the latter, McHale was presented with a challenge to bypass any oncoming career slump by delving deep into new work.

RUNNING FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T

For most people, a spinal cord injury is a catastrophic, life-altering event. For a lucky few, it is an injury that can, eventually, be fully cured. One organization that sees its cure is the charity Wings for Life World Run. On a layover in Moscow a few years ago, CEO Anita Gerhardter was thinking of ways to bring much-needed research moolah to the concerned parties and had the novel idea of getting the whole world running. Gerhardter dreamed big, and within a few short years, the Wings for Life World Run has become the grand running event she envisioned. With participating cities on six continents — including Ypres, Belgium; Pretoria, South Africa; Lima, Peru; the United Arab Emirates; and even Melbourne, Australia — Gerhardter’s vision has truly become a global sensation. With the support of two-time motocross world champion Heinz Kinigadner (whose son Hannes became a tetraplegic in 2003) and Red Bull founder Dietrich Mateschitz, technology factors into this race in a big way. “Catcher Cars” survey and relay data back to headquarters in a simulcast that kicks off at the same time around the globe. So far, 136,000 folks have run in more than 40 locations and raised nearly $8 million for spinal cord injury research. There are numerous run lengths in which you can participate. Registration costs $50, 100 percent of which goes to research.

The pretty palm trees and balmy weather of Sunrise have been chosen for the Florida location, and the race takes off at 7 a.m. Sunday at the BB&T Center, 1 Panther Parkway. Visit wingsforlifeworldrun.com. ABEL FOLGAR
