I’m listening to a recording of the latest Board of Commissioners meeting. Oh my god. It has been over an hour and we are still in Public Comment. Time for a drink!
But, I must first address something – White Americans celebrating Cinco de Mayo. What is the deal?
For those who don’t know, Cinco is a minor commemoration of battle against a fake emperor in the 1800s. It is not a big deal in Mexico. But, it sure is in the land of Appropriation! People who spend hours watching Fox News, and complaining about “them Mexicans” coming to take our jobs, once a year decide to celebrate Mexican heritage.
I guess that is better than detaining people. But, if you’re going to do it, do it right. Walking around wearing a sombrero, with a lime inserted in a bottle of Corona does not make you a Mexican. Walking around wearing a sombrero with a bottle Tecate – hell yes. You are an honorary Mexican, for sure.
If you have to go for a Mexican lager, go for Tecate. It is crisp, smooth and perfect on hot day. Now, Tecate is known as the Budweiser of Mexico because of its market dominance. However, that doesn’t mean it is not good. It is great and an open cooler of ice with plummeted Tecates is a common site in the Old Country.
Whether you are mowing the lawn, kicking around el futbol, or running from border patrol, Tecate should be your Mexican beer of choice.
By the way. Do you know why they put limes in Corona in Mexico? It keeps the flies out of the Beer. Limes in beer bottles are not cool, mi amigos.
