What’s up, Peekskill? Margaritas, rain and Mother’s day!

Seems like Cinco de Mayo is actually Fin de Semana de Mayo in Peekskill. But, honestly, who really needs an excuse to party? So get yourself downtown to celebrate the 154th anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla. And don’t forget your mother — doesn’t she look fabulous? Not a day over 29!* Happy Mother’s Day to all you Moms out there!
yummy
(*Apologies to Moms not yet 29… y’all look fabulous too!)
