Kitchen News: More Cinco de Mayo Fun

Hello All!

As you all probably know Saturday is Cinco De Mayo.  In the spirit of this holiday we have some special menu items coming up…

All month long we will be featuring Mary’s special coffee creation the Mexican Spice Latte!  It has chocolate in it as well as a sweet cinnamon frothed milk on top…YUM!

On Saturday (May 5th) we will be serving a “fiesta” inspired breakfast including our normal menu items but with a twist in the veggies and spices we usually use.  Saturday’s social will be quesadillas and we will have Corona beer and  Margaritas (instead of Sangria)!

FYI…
Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Dia de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla). The date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War. In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. Contrary to widespread popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day—the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico—which is actually celebrated on September 16.
