Friday, the 5th of May!

I actually feel a little silly calling this a cinco de mayo party, because, after all, it's not actually an independence day or anything, and even if it were, only my name is latino, no matter how much I wished I was Mexican when I was little. On the other hand, it's a great excuse for a party, so what the heck. Thus, here is the official announcement for my Friday gathering, which happens to be on the 5th of May, which some people happen to call el cinco de mayo and make a big deal out of:

Show up anytime between 6 and 10 Friday evening. If you want to show up after that, give me a ring to be sure that things are still happening.

I will provide: vodka soaked chocolate filled chiles, possibly chiles rellenos with the more traditional cheese, lots of cheeses and things to spread them on, grillables (and a hot grill) and some beverages. If you'd like to bring something, feel free! Beverages are always a safe bet as I often forget that some people like things other than water. Or if you have a favorite food, especially if it's a little weird or experimental, great!

Kids are welcome here, with the caveat that my house is full of attractive nuisances: lots of toys are visible and reachable that are not available for playing with. This makes having kids here a lot of work for some parents, and some parental feedback I've gotten from past gatherings is that it's tough, so... your call.

So! Join me! Eat wacky foods! Enjoy good company! Etc.
