Your Biennial Cinco De Mayo Reminder

By Arturo R. García

If you’re going out tonight, be careful and be wary – Cinco De Mayo is amateur hour when it comes to frosty adult beverages. The drinks will probably be cheaper, but the rowdies will probably be taking advantage of that. So watch out for anybody in a cheap “sombrero,” especially on the road.

In the meantime, please check out this little bit of perspective on today’s “holiday,” originally published at The R two years ago today. And let’s all stay safe out there.

    Great article. I also believe that many people (apparently this holiday is big in other countries as well) think that it’s ok to perpetuate the obvious stereotypes by wearing the sombreros, ponchos, and shouting every stereotypical word that they think Mexicans say.
