In 1862 They Shot The French And Sipped A Few

Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a regional holiday in Mexico, primarily celebrated in the state of Puebla. The holiday commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely defeat of French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. The outnumbered Mexicans defeated a much better-equipped French army that had known no defeat for almost 50 years.

I have seen my share of debauchery on good ole Cinco De Mayo and tonight should be no different. I am hitting the Yanks/Saux game…looking to be a wash out, but what can you do…I will tell you what you can do, you can get a bottle of Tanteo Tequila, Sip it like a gentleman and before you know it, it will be 75 and sunny. So go ahead and order some Mexi for lunch, Tecate for happy hour and Tanteo for dinner…leave the salt, save the lime and chew on a taco will ya? God Bless You and God Bless El Dirty Sanchez!
