Mexican Independence Day!!!
167 Nassau Ave, BK 11222
Independence Day celebrates the day Miguel Hidalgo is believed to have made the cry for independence (El Grito de la Independencia) in the town of Dolores, in the north-central part of the Mexican state of Guanajuato. Hidalgo was one of the nation’s leaders during the War of Independence in Mexico. There is no scholarly agreement on what was exactly said by Hidalgo, but his speech, also known as the cry of Dolores (el Grito de Dolores), was made on September 16, 1810 to motivate people to revolt against the Spanish regime. Hidalgo’s army fought against the Spanish soldiers in the fight for independence, but he was captured and executed on July 30, 1811. Mexico’s independence was not declared until September 28, 1821.
In honor of this day we will have Montelobos mezcal tastings and cocktails, Mexicali beer specials and some new tacos stylings. Plus, we’ll have some old school lucha libre/luchador movies rolling and maybe a surprise or two….. ¡Oralé!
