El Merkury is giving away 555 churros on Cinco De Mayo to celebrate the eatery's fifth anniversary.

Cinco De Mayo is usually reserved for drinking, however, one Philadelphia restaurant is giving away desserts to celebrate the day. El Merkury is giving away 555 stuffed or mini-looped churros to celebrate its fifth anniversary next Friday.

Starting at 11 a.m. the first 555 people to come to the Central American eatery's 2104 Chestnut Street location will receive a sweet treat.

Three lucky winners can also enter to win a $55 gift card to El Merkury. All you have to do is follow the eatery's Instagram account, follow user @josheatsphilly, like this post, and tag a friend in the comments. Every comment is an entry and there is no limit on entries.
