Happy Cinco de Mayo!
First thing first, Cinco de Mayo is not, I repeat NOT, the day of Mexico’s independence. Instead, it marks the day that Mexico unexpectedly defeated French forces at the Battle of Puebla. However, liike St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo has turned in a national reason to go out drinking and snacking on salsa and chips.
Since I am half Mexican, I grew up celebrating Cinco de Mayo with my mom making homemade tortillas, mexican rice, and beans. However, as an adult, I usually acknowledge the holiday by spending time with friends and couple of pitchers of Margaritas and this year will be no different.
After work, a couple of my coworkers and I are going to go to this awesome Mexican spot in Midtown. I heard they have some of the best margaritas in town. So, I’m down! Afterwards, I’m going to run across the street to another bar to meet with a couple of girlfriends as we drown out sorrows that Beyonce’ cancelled her Nashville show a.k.a the one we were supposed to go to tonight. Whooo, I’m so mad about that. Let me move on, because the more I think about it, the angrier I get and the more I might drink.
Well, if you planning to hit the town to do a little bar hopping for some margaritas, I have a little festive style inspo for you.
