Happy Cinco De Mayo!

No it's not the U.S.M.'s independence day, but it's not entirely made up either. The holiday, at least in theory, celebrates the Battle of Puebla, where a vastly outnumbered Mexican force routed an Imperial French Army in 1862 during the French attempt to install a friendly Austrian Archduke as monarch in the United States of Mexico. 

This was not the pivotal battle during the war, but it was a great morale booster for the Mexicans and gives American college students ample excuses to get drunk and pass out. 

This year, Cinco De Mayo it gives us fine opportunity to relax and not be reminded in any way of the current unpleasantness. 

The best way to celebrate a Mexican Drinking Holiday is, of course with Mexican beer, the best known of which is probably Coro....
