I heard that it had something to do with a shipload of Hellmann's, and an iceberg in the fog off the coast of Acapulco.

 

Sinko da mayo.

An American made holiday.  It is not celebrated or only a small celebration in some places in Mexico.

Same with St Patrick’s Day.

Back in the late 1960's,  when I lived in Mexico City with my Godparents, it was celebrated on a low level.

No.  He meant it was created by Mexicans.

Actually St Patrick's Day was created by New York Mexicans. The founders were Juan O'Gomez and Ramon Fitzsanchez.

The 5th is celebrated in Puebla. Like Lexington and Concord are celebrated in Boston. But on a larger scale.

Bob, “Concord”, please.  The other one is retired airplane.

A simple typo. I lived in MASS for a year. I also lived in Concord, CA as a lad. The d is to close to the e on the tiny keyboard. :lol:

I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis. ;)

San Patricios

 

One of the vaqueros at a ranch where I worked in '71 was of Irish descent.
He looked like the Lucky Charms leprechaun (but taller). Name was Bob O'Brien and no hablaba inglés.
IIRC, all of the working cowboys were Mexican nationals...except the buckaroo boss, who was Canadian.

The movie "one Man's Hero" is about John Riley and the St. Patrick's Battalion.

I know its a fake holiday, but my friend in Queretaro still has a drink with me on facetime for traditions sake.

 

Here's a cocktail for today, or any day really, goes well with a homemade tortilla and carnitas:

 

The Oaxacan Wasp

1.5oz Mezcal (a smokey variety)

1 oz honey simple syrup (dissolve honey in hot water 1:1 ratio)

2 slices jalapeno

 

muddle the jalapeno in the Mezcal, add the honey syrup and ice. Garnish with cilantro. 

Edited by Snakejaw_Joe
has to be the right Mezcal...

It’s not a fake holiday. It’s just a very localized holiday :lol:

When I as stationed in Rota Spain there were 4 kinds of holidays; local, regional, national, and just because.  The just because holidays were observed just because 3 other holidays fell on that week and there was no point in working any more that week because everyone was tired from all the celebrating.

Yoda types don’t favor tequila. Their heads look too much like Agave plants.

Thanks, Bob. 

I know you like poems.  So on this 200th Anniversary...

 

"They say those years were wasted all
Those years of glory in his train
Our lives, our blood and limbs, they say
All those we gave in vain

For him ambition and throne
The servitude of craven kings
To rule the world, to shake it all
For him those were the only things

Ah well – the old light horseman turns
And keeps his counsel, knowing that
The jackals that the lion spurns
Will one day conspire to bring him low

But in his heart the memory burns
As burns the ancient saber scars
Still with the jingling squadrons he
Goes splendid to the wars

But oh, to saddle horse and ride
Up with the Guard amidst the guns
The wild trumpets peel our pride
And hail him as he comes!

But oh, to stand dress parade once more
Bearskins all dripping in the rain
And shout, "Long Live the Emperor"
And see the little hat again"

 

- A Fanfare for the Valiant

The Russians do that.
