I had a ton of fun with one of the attorneys in our firm, Ms. M., and two of her friends. The head attorney at the law firm told us that we were fired if we didn't go out to celebrate, drink, eat, and be merry. So, that's just what we did! He placed me in charge of making sure everyone had fun. We did!
Above is a picture of me after a whole day's work, a bad hair day (rainy and humid), three Don Julio tequila shots, two Modelo Negra beers and a few fabulous, tasty appetizers. Below is Ms. M. showcasing her favorite dessert, basil/strawberry sorbet, after downing a few passion fruit margaritas and three shots of Don Julio! We had a blast! We were feeling good! So, I guess we are not fired after all, and we have pictures to prove it.
Why do people celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the United States? Who knows?
May 5th is actually the date the Mexican Army was victorious over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. I know many people who mistakenly believe that this is Mexico's Independence Day! Wrong. That would be September 16th. Remember that for future reference.
Regardless, I hope some of you celebrated the commemoration of this historical event with our friends to the South with some delicious, smooth tequila, and / or with some delicious Mexican cuisine. We did!
