Cinco de Cuatro is a holiday celebrated on the TV show Arrested Development, invented by George and Lucille Bluth in the 1980s as a way to buy and destroy all of the Cinco de Mayo-themed decor and merch in Newport Beach so the family's Hispanic staff wouldn't attempt to take the holiday off; if they didn't have the supplies to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, they wouldn't need to call off of work. 

The plan backfired, obviously, and Cinco de Cuatro became a Newport Beach blow-out bash. 

Locally, MOTR Pub is honoring the Bluth's "war on May the fifth" by turning the basement into an Arrested Development-themed bar, complete with a Bluth Banana Stand, the show streaming on the TV downstairs and themed food and drinks.

Hopefully someone booked a magician.

9 p.m.-2 a.m. May 4. Free admission. MOTR Pub, 1345 Main St., Over-the-Rhine. More info here.
