Friday, May 5, 2023 – Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo, or the fifth of May, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War.

It has nothing to do with the United States of America. Those who recall their history know that in 1862 the USA and the CSA were involved in their own war and had no interest in Mexico happenings.

According to the Washington DC-based Beer Institute, Cinco de Mayo is one of the biggest American holidays for beer sales, especially at restaurants and bars.

Therefore, Cinco de Mayo is a designated day of drinking. A tall dressed Dos  Equis is perfect with a taco, chalupa, cheese and guacamole.  I hope you celebrate the day!
