Dear readers,

Happy Friday to you all!  Tomorrow, May 5th, marks my most favorite holiday of the calendar year:  Cinco de Mayo!  And, while I'm not quite up to snuff on its significance or history, I will say that, in honor of whatever Cinco de Mayo represents, you can bet your ass that I will be partying - and eating - like a rock star.  And, speaking of partying, did you know that the Kentucky Derby *also* takes place tomorrow?  Whew, this is going to be one sloppy weekend!

Still trying to figure out your May 5th game plan?  Don't fret, because good ol' Grub Street came up with a list of awesome places to get your party on.  To 'Derby or to Cinco'?  Or to both?  That, my friends, is the million dollar question.


The Kentucky Derby is cool and all, but Cinco de Mayo is my thing.  So, if you find yourself in need of some delicious Mexican-centric recipe ideas, then check out some of my personal favorites, below:

So get your 'Derby hats on and your margarita glass bottoms up!


Until we eat again,
