Let's face it: There's just something about a salt-rimmed margarita on the rocks that makes people weak in the knees. The cheerful pale yellow-green h...
11 fiesta-worthy tacos, cocktails and (of course) plenty of spicy chocolate for Cinco de Mayo. Fish Salpicon by merrill ...
On Cinco de Mayo, five high school students were sent home for wearing American flag shirts. Everyone from Fox News to Roger Ebert dug in with opinions. But the revealing action took place in the audience portion of the show.

Cinco de Mayo more about national pride and standing up to imperialist Europeans. I guess it's sort of like Americans celebrating the Battle of New Orleans from the War of 1812.
Since 1863, Californians have celebrated the fifth of May, and now people across the U.S. recognize the occasion as well. Yet it is virtually ignored in Mexico.
