Yep, it's Cinco de Mayo

In the "old days," when Jorge Madrazo was running the Mexican Consulate here in Seattle (before he moved on to lead SeaMar), he'd spend some time reminding everyone at the big Cinco de Mayo party that "Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day!"

So I'm taking this opportunity to carry on that tradition right here at No Es Muy Típico.

Cinco de Mayo is all about celebrating the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla. Mexico's Independence Day is September 16, or Dieciséis de Septiembre. Which doesn't quite roll off the tongue the same way for us gringos.

In any case, ENJOY in good measure.
