One of our biggest and best parties...and this year we've taken it to a new galaxy!!!!
CINCO DE MAYO is an honoured North American celebtration. It's a Mexican holiday that's actually becoming more popular in Canada & the US than it is in Mexico! As luck would have it, it also coincides with the greatest holiday ever celebrated outside of our Milky Way - MAY THE 4th BE WITH YOU! So once again we're combining the 2 to create a unique night that holds true to Mexican tradition while at the same time lets others get their Wookies on. So...
~ We must stand with our Mexican neighbours and pay tribute not only to the 151st anniversary of the heroic Battle of Pueblo, but to the nation that has blessed us with tequila, tacos and vague-but-blissful memories of our Reading Weeks/Spring Breaks. ~
~ Miliones de gringos all across North America will celebrate of our proclaimed Mexican nacional holiday as an excuse to tip back a few margaritas or even partake in tequila body shots. ~
~ Last year’s event was awesome, but this year we’re REALLY taking it to another galaxy.~
~ We’re starting things off from 6pm with some fun & games, great drink specials and very authentic Mexican food. The Mariachis will show up as will our beloved DJ Locura which is when the party really kicks into 2nd gear! ~
~ We're celebrating a day early which means it coincides with the official STAR WARS DAY (May the 4th be with you) so if you don't have any Mexicana in your closet, pull out the Wookie (that's not a euphemism)! Canadians be proud, according to Wikipedia "In 2011, the first organized celebration of Star Wars Day took place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the Toronto Underground Cinema."
About the Food
It's REAL MEXICAN FOOD!!! No, we’re not joking. We’ve actually got Mexican chef, Cisco, on the night making only authentic Mexican food. Raised in California, he’s the first of his family born outside Mexico but he keeps the family tradition alive through his passion for Mexican food and culture. In fact, most of the recipes on the night will be his late grandmother’s including hand-made corn tortillas which we'll be using for authentic tacos! And if that’s not cool enough, his father was part of the first group to ever celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the US in the 1960’s. And if that’s still not cool enough, he’s a hockey player and a fan of the Canucks (and the Kings but we'll forgive that). He only cooks from the heart and is doing this purely as a favour to us to make sure we get truly traditional Mexican food on the night. He did it for us last year and people are still talking about it!!!! Thanks in advance Cisco…you’re awesome and once again, you’ve already done your family proud.
