Purity Of Essence: MaudlinMutantMollusk: I thought it was just a marketing ploy for CoronaThe date is historic, the celebration is pure gringo.
Mistymtnhop: Marinating Carne Asada as we speak. Black beans, cilantro-lime jasmine rice. Cilantro Caesar salad with roasted pepitos and many, many Coronas. Dinner is at 6.
Dack48: Carnitas in the slow cooker!

LeroyBourne: The Mexican joint down the road takes this day very seriously, a buddy of mine use to bar tend there, and he said they make margaritas by the 5 gal bucket, and they just go around with a giant ladle filling peoples glasses. He kinda cringed at the activity because it wasn't done with sanitation in mind, but everyone was blasted, so no one cared.
Trance750: Not even many Mexicans in Mexico celebrate, except for maybe those in Pueblo
unyon: Which is surprising. Not that CdM is essentially a meaningless holiday in Mexico, but rather that they don't celebrate it regardless. Mexicans seem to have a holiday about every other week, and will celebrate something at the drop of a hat. Just last weekend was children's day, earlier this week was May Day, and next week is Miguel Hidalgo's birthday. I guarantee each of those is an excuse to knock off early and get pissed.I love the way Mexicans roll.
