I have been celebrating Cinco de Mayo since the mid-80's when, at the time, I lived in San Diego, California. The festive holiday has been carried with me back to my Midwest roots and now, some 25 plus years later, I still enjoy a cerveza on this celebration of Mexico's independence. Here are a couple of items we have in our home with that fiesta flair! Happy Cinco de Mayo, amigos!
