¡Holy Frijoles! This Saturday is the Perfect Storm – a pleeee-thora of events, all on Derby day / Fight night / Cinco de Mayo (May 5th, for our non-Spanish readers). Yep, not sure how it all so much came together on one lonely May Saturday, but my goodness, it’s overwhelming, even for me.
Cinco de Mayo has always been a HUGE party event for us here at the lake. I’m not sure why we get so excited about Irish (St. Paddys) and Mexican holidays, but we do – they are always huge, year after year. Couple that with the Kentucky Derby in the morning/afternoon hours, and a much-anticipated UFC fight late night Saturday, and well… you just might have an excuse to party from 9am-1am. If you’re feeling up to the challenge and decide to “go for it,” I’m sure our local bars and restaurants will be chock full of fake mustaches, sombreros, and Coronas by early in the evening.
