Happy Cinco de Margaritayo! Or Mayo, whatever. To most, today is a day to get unapologetically drunk on tequila. To few, it is a day to pay homage to Mexico’s Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, when the Mexican army defeated invading French forces from conquering the state of Puebla. To one person I know, it is a good reason to wear bright red pants.
Whatever you’re into, tonight environmental action group Time’s Up welcomes you into its arms for a little bikin’, a little burritoin’, and a little drankin’. It’s a BYOB affair, which I assume goes for both booze and bikes. After, shake your taco with some dancin’ while you stumble and swing at pinatas. If this doesn’t say “Way to Go, Mexico!” I don’t know what does.
