Perhaps you thought "socially conscious" drinking meant you weren't an obnoxious jerk at the bar and you managed to stay upright all night.
The most salient trend, by far, is the impressive pluralization of Latino religiosity. On one hand, Catholicism is no longer the hegemonic faith among Latinos.
