Have a Rockin' Cinco De Mayo Fiesta!

Amongst all the birthdays and weddings that have taken over April and May, don't forget to share a little love for Cinco de Mayo this week! I for one LOVE Mexican food, so when there's a reason to celebrate a Mexican holiday, why not make the most of it!?Fun ideas for a Tuesday Cinco de Mayo party:
1. Learn about the history of Cinco de Mayo. I found a great article about what Cinco de Mayo is all about. So start off by sharing a bit of multiculturalism and knowledge on the origins of Cinco de Mayo.
2. Try some fun margarita recipes. From avocado margaritas to beer margaritas, host a fun margarita party and try several of these fun kooky margarita recipes!3. Buy a pinata! Pinatas come in all shapes and sizes and are pretty cheap. Fill it with all sorts of candy and goodies, and POW! A great activity for kids and adults.4. Watch some Mexican-inspired DVD's. As an avid movie-lover, I'm always on the lookout for fun themed movies. I found a few lists recommended at amazon, but I'm only going to recommend the ones that I've actually seen:
The Three Amigos, Like Water for Chocolate, The Mexican, Selena, Desperado, Once Upon a Time in Mexico
