Today is Cinco de Mayo, the Mexican celebration of an unlikely victory in 1862 by Mexican forces over French invaders near the city of Puebla. What most people don’t know is that word of the victory did not reach Mexico City until June 2. Now I’m not of Mexican heritage, but I must say that Mexican food is 1A my favorite food along with Italian, which goes a long way towards explaining why I am 25 pounds over my fighting weight. I’m going to have Macho Nachos at my favorite Mexican restaurant, Caballo Blanco, today, but the real Cinco de Mayo celebration for me is going to be June 2, when “Don’t Look Back” is released. Tener un gran dia todo el mondo!!
