Cinco de Mayo

Mexican FlagKaren and I headed out after work today to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at Bandito Burrito.

If you don't know about Cinco de Mayo, I can give you a quick answer. From Wikipedia, “Cinco de Mayo (“The Fifth of May” in Spanish) is a national celebration in Mexico and widely celebrated in many parts of the United States. It commemorates the victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza over the French expeditionary forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. It is a common misconception that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico's Independence Day.” To learn more, I would suggest reading here.

I had a blast today and even collected some swag. Karen got a cool Dos Equis XX t-shirt which she proceeded to put on, because she was getting cold. While, I got a Corona hugger to keep my beers cold.

To crank up the fun at work, I hung a piñata in the my lab. and I had Mexican music playing all morning backed up by a mix of salsa.
