    One of the biggest party days of the year is coming up in a few weeks, and I thought we could swap some Cinco de Mayo party ideas. The fifth of May, the day set aside to celebrate the independence of Mexico is a great time to party. I am thinking plenty of good food and a pinata. Any other ideas?

    Re: what's cinco de mayo

    if my memory serves me well, Cinco De Mayo commemorates the victory of Mexico against the French in Puebla Mexico. I don't think it actually has anything to do with the us but most young people in the US use this celebration as an excuse to party and drink.

    eat peepers on Cinco de Mayo

    hey wanderer, how about having hot pepper eating contests with your family and friends? I do this all the time with my friends and it's such a blast! Basically, you see how many hot peppers your guys can eat and whoever doesn't burst into flames wins, simples.

    jalopeno contests

    we do jalopeno contests but seriously watch out doing this if you're hypersensitive... I suggest buying mostly mildly hot peppers like pepperoncini, banana peppers, and pimentos if you're new to hot peppers. Of course, if you feel brave you could go for jalapenos, chilis, or polano peppers which will really knock you out!
