Happy Cinco de Mayo
All the Northerners are thinking, "Huh? What's 'sinko dee may-oh'?" Well, the 5th of May commemorates the victory of the Mexicans over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862. Fabulous, right? It's basically celebrated in Mexico and places with a large Mexican population (enter Houston). For the Mexicans, there are heavily-makeupped women, wearing flowy and brightly-colored Mexican dresses, dancing all over the place, with random men, yelling, "A ha ha!" For the gringos, there is an extended happy hour and half-priced fajitas for two. It's all good.
