¡ Feliz Cinco de Mayo !

May 5th, 2009 . by blogadmin

Commonly mistaken for “Mexican Independence Day”, it’s actually: (n) Cinco de Mayo, the fifth of May which is observed in Mexico and Mexican-American communities in the United States to commemorate the Mexican victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. (per Princeton)  Around here it’s mostly just another very good reason to enjoy Mexican food and the cool beverages that pair with it so well!

Tonight I’m celebrating in grand style at a quote-a-long feast of “The Three Amigos” at Austin’s “more than famous, INfamous!” Alamo Drafthouse.  I can’t wait to laugh, and laugh, and laugh at those sons of motherless goats while enjoying a holiday appropriate gourmet (vegan, gluten-free!) meal!

Not sure, but I won’t be surprised if gringos fall from the sky! Maybe even a plethora of them!

–Wherever there is injustice, you will find us.

–Wherever liberty is threatened, you will find…
–The Three Amigos!
