Not Another Article about Cultural Appropriation

I’m definitely not an expert on Mexican culture or Mexican history- despite my at-times olive complexion and competent Spanish, I know much less about our southern neighbor than the (a lot less olive, more lobster) Jimmy Buffett. However, I have been fortunate to spend a decent amount of time in Mexico and loved it- especially when I lived like a local. Our company BREWPUBLIK handles Cinco de Mayo beer delivery, but genuinely cares about so much more re. the holiday.

As Jimmy’s buddy James Taylor sings, it is an enchanting experience, how life seems to slow down once you cross the Rio Grande. In my experience, this is true not only on the beachside resorts, but even in the much rougher and tumble outskirts of Juarez.

You see, even here in laid-back California, we go, all day. There a pleasure in the stillness that hot days, potholed roads and tequila cause in Mexico.

Every year, on Cinco (or “drink-o”) de Mayo, quite a few Americans lean into that feeling- with gusto, tiny multicolored sombreros, slushy margarita machines, Coronas and taco bars galore. It feels like the true beginning of summer. I’m just wondering if there’s a way to do it that more truly honors the Mexican culture, if only for a day.

This isn’t an article about cultural appropriation- there are plenty of other blogs for that, however I think there’s a way to have fun and celebrate the fifth of May without resorting to American-ized memes. So how do you celebrate with true Mexican flair?
