It doesn’t get any bigger than Cinco de Mayo at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. We are, after all, the top Mexican joint on the block, no matter the block, and feel inclined to amp it up accordingly. It’s a fiesta unlike any siesta, and it’s going off at your local Fuzzy’s.
But first, what are we celebrating? There’s gotta be a reason for the all the extra flag-waving and taco-eating, right?
Cinco de Mayo—or as we say in the United States, the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. It wasn’t the victory that won them the war, but it was a major strategic win and a huge boost to the Mexican army’s morale. (Hey, it’s not like the Fourth of July was when the Declaration of Independence was actually signed, so don’t bother us with semantics.)
It’s a day to celebrate Mexican culture, Mexican heritage and, most importantly (for us, at least), Mexican food.
There are many ways to enjoy this wonderful holiday at Fuzzy’s. Here are a few suggestions:
- Order all our red, green and white items on the menu and make a Mexican flag on your plate.
- Buy a taco for the person standing behind you in line.
- Shout “Viva la Mexico!” when your food is ready.
- Try to order in Spanish.
- When you finish your meal, scream “Gooooooooaaaallllll!”
- Get Fuzzy’s catered to your place of employment and spread the Cinco de Mayo love to your co-workers.
The list really goes on and on. We think you get the idea.
Of course, not all of you are lucky enough to live close enough to a Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get in on the divertido (Spanish for fun).
You can make some tacos at home, finally get started on Rosetta Stone: Spanish, watch some telenovelas (Spanish soap operas), drink some Mexican beer or watch some soccer. It really depends on how you want your day to go.
Whatever the case, whether you’re near or far, it’s an important day to celebrate and one that we’ll be taking seriously. So if you’re feeling like doing Cinco de Mayo right, come in to your nearest Fuzzy’s Taco Shop.
Ole! Ole, Ole, Ole!
