Cinco de Drinko

As a closet gringa or as I like to call myself, a yuppie chicana, I’ve always wanted to celebrate Cinco de Mayo but it’s considered one of the cardinal sins for pochos.

Getting together with friends and family to eat, drink and enjoy each other’s company is so anti-Latino.

Everyone knows “real” Mexicans only party like that on September 16th.

If you ever happen to be in Mexico on the 5th of May you will find bars closed, tequila shelved and instead of families coming together, everyone sits in front of their TV’s ignoring each other.

Wait, maybe it’s the other way around. Maybe Americans like using Cinco de Mayo as an excuse to get together, because we don’t do enough of it.

Sure, some gringos might think its Mexican Independence Day but who cares? Did you know St. Patrick wasn’t actually Irish?

So go take a shot of tequila and together we can make America great again by pretending to be Mexican even if just for a day.
