Nice way to offend our Mexican and Mexican American Forum members, guys. Do you not celebrate it simply because you've gotten over the need for any alcoholic justifications whatsoever?


Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

It says "10 servings." Think how gluttonous you will appear if you do not invite me and Chris tonight.

Bob,

My family and I couldn't wait for Cinco de Mayo, we celebrated it on Tres de Mayo, we had tacos for dinner.

I was reading that Cinco de Mayo is celebrated more in the U.S. than it is in Mexico and that in Mexico, really only one "state" celebrates it.

As they said on the radio this morning, I think that it is more of a "Drinko de Mayo" anymore than anything.

No offense to anyone of Mexican heritage, just repeating something I heard.

I was at your website last week. That van is lookin' kinda dated. If I were shopping for one, I think I'd seek a photographer with newer wheels.

Like I said, it served 10. Leftovers tonight? What time?

Gary, a head start is never a bad thing.
Nick, yes it's an American food and beverage marketing thing. It only remembers the Battle of Puebla and not Mexican independence. But, hey, I'm sure you guys would drink to that, eh?

Or just drink to Mark's birthday (Well, Steve AND Mark's today, but Mark's BDay is a real 'go to' for other occasions days of the week.)

When I used to wake up the day after Christmas as a child, I would say too myself, 364 more days to Christmas. Nowadays I say 364 more days to Cinco de Mayo. But the good news is if we celebrate it two days earlier like we did this year, then we only have 362 days, can't wait. Maybe next year I'll be a little more daring and put some hot sauce on top of my tacos in celebration of the holiday.
