Cinco de Mayo, 2018
Hey amigos y amigas, it's time to party. On this occasion, celebrate Mexican cuisine, music, and culture. You need an afternoon of food, festivities, and friends. Si?

So grab your sombrero and maracas, and join us for a Latin celebration on Sunday May 5, 2018.

The party is on from 1 to 7 pm, with food served at 1:30 pm, at Don's place.

This will be a potluck. Bring an item to share: main dish, salad, side dish, drinks, or fruit. Think guacamole, tomatoes, tomatillos, jicama, chilies, and limes, as well as tacos.

Casa de Don is at 28146 North Bay Road, Lake Arrowhead. A map with driving instructions is below. Members and friends just show up. Others call 909-744-8561.
Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of the battle of the Puebla. On May 5, 1862, Mexican soldiers prevailed against Napoleon's French forces, even though the French were better equipped, had twice the numbers, and hadn't been defeated in 50 years. The battle was a turning point of spirit, giving Mexicans a much needed taste of victory. Since that time, (and with some involvement by the U.S.,) no country in the Americas has been invaded by any other European force.
