Good morning and happy Cinco de Mayo! This week’s print issue is out on newsstands today but digital subscribers can get it online here.
As New Mexico is finally opening up and coming out of our long pandemic slumber, we finally have a reason to celebrate. This week, we’re featuring Cinco de Mayo in the hopes of bringing some much-needed focus to our restaurant and bar scene which has struggled throughout the past year. We’d also like our dear readers to understand the history of the very-Americanized holiday (it’s not Mexican Independence Day, but you already knew that — right?!) and celebrate the influence of Mexican culture, food and drink here in New Mexico.
How will you celebrate? Patronize your favorite restaurant or taco truck. Venture out and try a margarita at one of the hotspots featured in our foodie pages. Whether you enjoy sipping on a craft cocktail or a giant bowl of debauchery is m more your flavor, celebrate responsibly and wear a damn mask, please. And, most importantly, don’t forget to tip your server.
