Attention Magazine Editors
Exactly one year from now, I will be available to write a piece that came to me around 5:00 PM today. I drove by no less than three Mexican-themed restaurants that were celebrating, or offering specials that pertained to, Cinco de Mayo. These restaurants do not employ, nor do they patronize, actual Hispanic people. Being chains, the names are common in many cities: Cozymel’s, El Chico, On The Border, etc. Next year, I would be more than willing to divide my May 5th (as I should be calling it) across observing the celebrations that occur in these restaurants. On The Border in particular, seemed raucous, as music and whistles and a cross section of the neighborhood’s middle-management elite spilled into the parking lot. Seemed like a good time. Editors, one year from now, no, make that, eleven months from now…PENCIL ME IN!!
