Type: Fun, Group Date, Party
Planned By: Dani & Adam
anyone who doesn't know what Cinco De Mayo is (May 5th) it is... Who am
I kidding? Everyone knows what it is. It is the date in 1862 when the
Mexican army surprisingly defeated France. It is widely celebrated in
the United States because of Mexican-American heritage and because their
win in that battle helped the United States against France, too.
I mostly celebrate it because I like margaritas, but those are good
reasons, too. Every couple months our college friends like to have a
little get together if possible. We offered our apartment for May. We
couldn't invite too many people since we down sized to a one bedroom,
but there was enough room for the people who came.
We started out by making margaritas and playing a card game. The
twist to the game was each player had to say the card in Spanish. Adam
was the only one who didn't take Spanish (he took French, boo!!)... so
it was a fairly easy twist for the rest of us.
When the last person arrived - closer to dinner time - we got the
taco bar all set up. We had flour tortillas, taco seasoned ground beef,
tortilla chips, queso, salsa, and all the toppings. The tacos were
What is a party without a Pinata? Not a very good one.. don't worry
we got one! We had to hang it from a door with hanger. We also didn't
have a stick to hit it with so we used a kitchen utensil. Still got the
job done! Everyone had a great time crawling around on the floor trying
to get the candy and little bottles of liquor we put in the pinata.
Adam and I also bought everyone a little shot of Patron Tequila.
Adam didn't feel like waking up from his nap to take his. Sean didn't
take his because he doesn't like tequila. The rest of us girls attempted
to choke it down with salt and a a lime.
Next, we went out to the Warehouse District. We got free mustaches
and a sombrero at The Barley House, checked out the cool view of the
city at Velvet Dog, and rode the mechanical bull at Tequila Ranch. Our
night out on the town was a success.
In the morning we realized we didn't have our ice cream tacos. So we
had those for breakfast. Waffle turned in to a shell with ice cream
Overall, this Cinco De Mayo was amazing. We all had a great time, and I can't wait till we see our friends again! :)
