not mentioned. Not advertised in local grocery stores. Not even over the beer. Now why do you suppose that is??

People are starting to remember that this isn't fucking Mexico?

Plenty of it in the St. Louis area. Mostly just businesses trying to capitalize on it though.

It is like St Patrick's Day. A day to drink beer no matter what your heritage.

There was a big bash in Detroit's mexican neighborhood yesterday. It probably didn't hurt that the weather was very nice yesterday and the Tigers had an afternoon game, which ended right around happy hour.

And, like the Mexican Army, the Tigers weren't expected to win and did? :D

We had a sedate Cinco de Mayo volunteer potluck lunch at Selby Botanical Garden yesterday. :D

There were a couple restaurants advertising the celebration yesterday with food specials, but there didn't seem to be too much press about it. With the economy the way it is around here, most of the Mexicans have left. You can't even have a good garage sale around here since they're gone. There's no one buying the stuff. :p

The Chicago Cubs. Still surrendering after all these years. :D

Yes, and the Red Wings were expected to win and didn't.

They've closed some streets down in Denver tonight for some celebration of it but Calypso is right, I didn't hear anywhere near as much as about it this year as I have in the past 5 years or so.

A Mexican victory over the cheese-eating surrender monkeys that isn't even celebrated in Mexico seems bizarre to me. At least with St. Patrick's Day there are millions of non-Irish Catholics who can stake a minor cultural claim.

Meh.
