Cinco de Mondayo

Well it would appear that my lazy ass has finally managed to get back to my blog after missing a couple of weeks.

Or a month.

And a few days.

Anyways. Work has kept me busy. A couple of trips to visit various suppliers of ours were both a lot of fun. They managed to entertain and educate... Lots of entertaining... Yeah...

And now we're working on a whole on a whole new holiday of fun; Cinco de Mayo. CdM is not a "real holiday" in Mexico but us beer people have managed to turn it into a traditional celebration of Mexican heritage. (Read, lot's of fucking drinking and eating pseudo-Mexican food)

Sadly enough, the date actually commemorates the date that a Mexican General defeated a French General as the French were invading Mexico... They beat the French, big fucking deal, who hasn't. The really funny thing to me is the French regrouped and a year later took control of Mexico for four years... "Mexico, the country that lost to France in battle" probably won't be making it onto the license plates any time soon.


But hey, kick back, put your feet up, and drink ANYTHING BUT a Co-ro-na... That shit is disgusting.

I had a Cinco De Mayo party last year. I dressed my dog up in a poncho and a tiny sombrero and put a corona next to him sleeping. I think it goes without saying that it was THE BEST PARTY EVER.

Yep! Corona is piss water. So is Tecate. That's why they always stick a lime chunk on the can; to give it a little flavor.

Here in Germany they drink a faux-Mexican beer called Desperados, but only American bars and restaurants know that CdM exists. Sadly.

I live in a place where a bunch of Cubans like to celebrate "their" holiday. Just because you speak spanish Paco doesn't make you mexican.

But really, another drinking holiday? If it's as memorable as my St. Patty's day, I'm in!

I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I drink Dos Equis. Stay thirsty, my friends.
