Speaking of Hillary Clinton and her tacos con todo, the pantsuit-loving democratic presidential candidate (PLDPC) is planning to throw a Mexican/Hispanic-themed party to watch the last presidential debate Wednesday night.
According to the Clinton campaign, the fiesta will take place Oct. 19 in Nevada, home of Tacos El Gordo, and will feature Vicente “Chente” Fernández as a guest of honor.
In case you have forgotten or — WORSE! — don’t follow this blog, “Chente” just came back from near retirement to ask YOU to vote for Hillary in mariachi fashion.
Now, go get yourself a Made-in-China mariachi hat and liters of tequila, and don’t forget to follow @miblogestublog on Twitter for a Mexican-themed Twitter party Wednesday night.
Remember the 5-feet-tall Mexican scene-setters? Well, now you can make your Mexican fiesta even more Mexican (as if that was even possible) by setting up a Personalized Mexican Fiesta Arch.
This beauty is not cheap, ¡no, señor! It will cost you a good $109.99 online. But don’t despair! The Personalized Fiesta Arch “has the look of a brick wall along with maracas, sombreros, chili peppers and guitar accents.” Plus. It ships in only one day, so why wait for Cinco de Mayo?
In case you’re still not sold on this stupid awesome deal, check this out: The Fiesta Arch “can be personalized with two lines of your own custom text.”
So hurry! I’ve already placed my order with a two line legend that reads:
¡Órale, gringo! Me querer mucho tequila! ¡Arriba, arriba, ándale, ándale!
Cinco de Mayo (aka this blogger’s favorite faux holiday) is just around the corner, and this year — with the explosion of Twitter, Snapchat, Periscope, Instagram and the like — the marketing furor promises to be crazier than ever before. Muy loco, indeed!
Stay tuned for this blog’s full “coverage” of this year’s non-Mexican holiday. In the meantime, take a look at this kit offered by Paper & Cake and start printing your own fiesta kit.
