Drinko de Mayo
Is there any holiday more lame than Cinco de Mayo, a fiesta designed to commemorate a ragtag Mexican army beating French soldiers in the city of Puebla in 1861-but a fiesta that also conveniently forgets that the French went on to occupy Mexico for four years? Eh, no one cares about historical subtleties, so drinko your Cinco away at Gabbi's Mexican Kitchen in Old Towne Orange, which has the county's best stock of artisan tequilas, from sweet Corralejo to stuff so rare even professional Mexicans have never heard of them. But make sure to visit Gabbi's early in the day, as elderly gabachos are sure to muck up the scene come sundown.
