Ok, so technically, it is Seis de Mayo, but close enough, right?
Cinco de Mayo celebrates Mexico's unlikely defeat of the French in 1862. I think the Mexicans are onto something here....If we make every defeat of the French a holiday, we'll never work again!
So, it is time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo WAR style. Put on your sombrero, shove a lime in your beer and hop on your bike, because we are goin' East Side, esse.
We will meet for dinner at El Chile - 1809 Manor - at 6:15pm. El Chile has, in my opinion (which is always right), some of the best mexican food in town. They also have great Micheladas. Ride starts promptly at 7pm. We will visit Rio Grande downtown, take a tour of the East Side, visit Fiesta Gardens, thumb our noses at the French Legation Museum and have a cold one at the Long Branch Saloon. We will end up next door to where we started on the porch of the Red House.
Bring lights, a helmet, a lock and some friends. See you there.
