5 Cinco de Mayo Tequila Cocktails We Love!

Any excuse to wear a fake mustache and a sombrero makes my heart sparkle. This is probably why Cinco de Mayo is one of my favorite holidays! Did I mention how much I love tacos and tequila?

5 Ways to Celebrate Derby Day and Cinco de Mayo At Once

So we have two really good reasons to day-drink, but how do we go about celebrating without neglecting one of the holidays? They're pretty much polar opposites and have nothing in common. How could I take these two awesome holidays and create one huge mega awesome holiday? Cinco de Derby? Derby de Mayo? Cinco Derby Day? This is going to be just like Chrismukkah only so much better.

Feliz Cinco De Mayo! Let's Celebrate Right

Ah, Cinco De Mayo. A grand holiday that brings to mind sombreros, margaritas, awkward family encounters with my cousin's salsa band... no one? Just me? Okay then...

Current Events Cheat Sheet: Egyptians Protest for Peace

Since last Tuesday, Egyptians unhappy with their authoritative government have taken to the streets in protest. Inspired by the week prior’s events in Tunisia, the protesters are calling for the resignation of Egyptian President Hosni Murabak and the in-statement of a democratic government. So far, though, American politicians have remained pretty quiet on their stance on the week’s riots.

Friday Faves: Contacts You Love…and Don’t Remember

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in college, it’s that half of the contacts in my phone are people I don’t know. I may have known them for the length of a drink or a line outside my favorite bar, but memory fades with last call.

It’s National Tequila Day. Let’s Drink!

Who doesn’t love having a few shots of tequila? This writer doesn't. I can usually manage with the lime and salt included, but still; there are tons of things I'd rather experience than the burn of tequila as it runs down my throat followed immediately by my stomach trying to send it back.

The Weekly Wrap Up: Here’s To You, Mom!

Another week has come and gone bringing us very close to Mother’s Day. Thankfully, it doesn’t take much to please our mom, so we made her something with our very own hands. We would have gone all out and splurged for her, but we just didn’t have the time with all that studying (and trying to win $100 to Amazon!) and preparing for the ever depressing college graduation.

Fun Margaritas For Cinco De Mayo

Happy Cinco De Mayo, ladies! Hopefully you can take a break from your regular drinking studying to celebrate a big moment in the history of Mexico. And hopefully you'll honor that country to our south the right way, instead of just grabbing a bag of Tostitos, a bottle of Corona, and a surgical mask.

Cinco De Mayo – Here’s To You, Mexico!

Until about 5 minutes ago, I thought Cinco De Mayo was a holiday to celebrate the invention of the pinata. Or tequila. Or those make-you-wanna-kill-yourself hangovers that only come from a full day of drinking tequila. What? That's pretty much what the holiday means to most college students, right?

Why We Love the Month of May

Yay for May! The April showers are (or should be) over, and it's time for summer kick in. I can't WAIT to be done with my exams (only one more... and 10 red bulls to go) and on the plane en route to my home.

The 5 Best Drinking Holidays

How's your Easter turning out? Did you celebrate with some mimosas this morning? Or perhaps you're planning on a little red wine with dinner? I know there aren't too many drinking opportunities on Easter, but that shouldn't stop you. After all that's what holidays are made for... er, well, kind of.

Senioritis: No More Drinking Holidays

Everything gets celebrated in college. No hook-up is too insignificant for an all day brunch recap and no detagging decision is too trivial to not involve all your friends. So it only gets crazier when it's an actually nationally recognized holiday.
