Have you ever noticed that the sun shines brighter on Cinco De Mayo? And that the sick feeling in your stomach that sinks in everytime you think of tequila goes away? And that the colors are much more vibrant? Yes indeed, Cinco De Mayo is a special day. The timing of this culturally significant event sucker punches the impenetrable grey and knocks it out cold! It is time to break out the short shorts, tank tops and margarita mix. LETS GET FESTIVE! Tis the season to celebrate the sun that liberates our pacific northwest minds from the gaudy grey that pummels us for months on end. Outdoor seating is now a hot commodity and it is actually practical to wear sunglasses and flip flops on consecutive days.
With that said, before we go diving head first into the seasons that balance our northwest equilibrium, we ask that you raise your margarita, Tacate, Modelo and Pacifico to General Ignacio Zaragoza, if it weren’t for his small battalion of rough and tumble fighters defeating a well provisioned French invasion in Puebla, Mexico, on the 5th of May, 1861… we would not have such a perfect introduction into the season of the sun.
