Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I figured I would make a special post to commemorate such a historic day… for the Mexican people.
Wikipedia says this…
Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a holiday held on May 5 that commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. It is celebrated primarily in the state of Puebla and in the United States. While Cinco de Mayo sees limited significance and celebration nationwide in Mexico, the date is observed nationwide in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.
Viva General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín! Viva, viva!!!
I have celebrated by breaking out a bottole of – drum roll please…
Stone 10th Aniversary India Pale Ale.
It’s from 2006! It has been sitting, chilled for 4 years! And let me tell you… it’s smooth.
This 10% ABV led me to do something… a little crazy. I plugged my melody making sequencer toy into my drum machine. I had to play around a little but I got it to sync up almost perfectly. It works!
Here is a video.
Happy Cinco de Mayo and of course…
