First, let it be said for the record that, according to many reliable info sources, Cinco de Mayo is not actually celebrated throughout Mexico (it’s more a Puebla thing). In all honesty, it’s a holiday on par with St. Patrick’s Day, just an excuse to chow down on particular grub and do lots of drinking, no matter what your personal heritage. Of course, this is not a criticism by your friendly neighborhood lover of vice and degeneracy. Any excuse to let down the hair and have sexy fun is all good by me.
So, why not blow out the stops on this sucker, right?
Oh sure, you can spend your Cinco de Mayo going out for a few tacos and repairing to some gabacho sports bar for Coronas, maybe a shot or two of hallucinogen … *erm* I mean, tequila. But, so long as we’re going to have an “excuse to party” holiday, let’s fucking party, kids! Are you with me? I thought you would be.
