Cinco de Mayo celebration US origins

Sometime in late May or early April of 1862, the May 27 edition of the San Francisco newspaper La Voz de Mejico reached Tuolumne Country in northern California. It had traveled by steamboat to Stockton, then by stagecoach to Sonora and the rest of the county. One of the top stories was about a battle the Mexican army won against the better-equipped French in Puebla, Mexico. The headline read, “Long live Mexico!!! Long live independence! Long live the valiant Mexican soldiers! Long live the he...

Tequila and Coke cocktail in Mexico

Tequila, Mexico, isn’t wildly popular with American tourists, especially when compared with other world-famous spirit regions like Cognac in France or Islay in Scotland. Those who do visit the village of Tequila often visit on bus tours or on the ever-popular roundtrip tequila train operated by Jose Cuervo. Yet doing so means bypassing exploring the village of Tequila itself independently, which is a shame for people looking for a true taste of the region. Aside from large distilleries like J...

Where to eat and drink at DFW

Dallas-Fort Worth is full of good places to eat, and its airport is no different. While it’s primarily stocked with the barbecue joints that the Lone Star State is so famous for, even the pickiest of eaters won’t go hungry waiting on a flight here (although vegetarians and vegans might find it a little harder than most).

The best Piña Coladas in San Juan

You don’t have to go far to find a Piña Colada in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The cocktail’s birthplace is rife with frosty hurricane glasses full of rum, coconut cream, and pineapple juice. The bar at your hotel undoubtedly blends a reliable version, which you can happily slurp while lounging on the sunny hotel patio until you get brain freeze. But you don’t want to simply call it in when drinking Piña Coladas in Puerto Rico — because the bars on this island make some of the best vacation drinks ...

Why an ancient spirit and a hidden bar will be at LA Galaxy home games

Starting this season, an ancient Mexican spirit will be on hand for every LA Galaxy home game, and if you’re observant enough, it even has a secret for you. Mezcaleria El Silencio, a bar with a hidden speakeasy, makes its debut March 2 for the LA Galaxy home opening game on the main concourse of Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, serving cocktails infused with the centuries-old mezcal spirit, which comes from the agave plant, like tequila. “Mezcal and soccer is a beautiful cocktail in itself,...

The history of the margarita

No drink can bring the same energy to a crowd of people like a margarita. The bright and balanced drink hits all the right levels of sweet, sour, salty, and boozy. It’s the most-loved cocktail in the US, according to a Nielsen survey, and it has been since Nielsen started polling bargoers on cocktails in 2016. The margarita has, in nearly every metric, taken over America. It’s also been bastardized beyond belief. A classic margarita is made with two ounces of blanco tequila, one and a half o...

Cheeseburger In Paradise Soup

Oh, my stars, this was sooo good! There’s only 2 things that would’ve made it better. If I was eating it in a Tropical oasis and Jimmy Buffet was singing Margaretville. Ok, maybe a Margarita itself would make it even better too. [Author: Andrea N.]

Translators on the Art of Translation.

To celebrate the National Book Award for Translated Literature, Emily Temple at Literary Hub quotes ten translators on how they translate; the most high-flown and most annoying is Nabokov (from his 1941 essay “The Art of Translation”): Three grades of evil can be discerned in the queer world of verbal transmigration. The first, and lesser one, comprises obvious errors due to ignorance or misguided knowledge. This is mere human frailty and thus excusable. The next step to Hell is taken by the tra...

Nevada as you've never seen it

Nevada as you’ve never seen it Lake Tahoe. Photo: Shutterstock/Topseller N evada covers a hefty 110,000 square miles — you could fit three Indianas in there, or 11 Marylands. And while it’s simpler on the imagination to picture this vast landscape as all ghost towns and desert, you’d be missing a whole hell of a lot: the alpine lakes, the snow-capped mountain ranges, the singing sand dunes, the art enclaves, the surreal rock formations, the lush river ...

In ‘First We Surf Then We Eat’ cookbook, recipes for adventurous eating from the world’s best surf spots

It’s a book longtime surfer Jim Kempton has unconsciously been writing his whole life. He started traveling the world to search for the best surf decades ago, documenting his adventures in the ’70s when exploration for waves was raw and new, and long before social media and forecasters easily pointed surfers to the best swells. Jim Kempton, former editor/publisher of Surfer Magazine, just published a book called “First We Surf Then We Eat.” (File photo Orange County Register/SCNG) Along the...

An Asbestos-Bound, Fireproof Edition of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 (1953)

Even by the extreme standards of dystopian fiction, the premise of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 can seem a little absurd. Firemen whose job is to set fires? A society that bans all books? Written less than a decade after the fall of the Third Reich, which announced its evil intentions with book burnings, the novel explicitly evokes the kind of totalitarianism that seeks to destroy culture—and whole peoples—with fire. But not even the Nazis banned all books. Not a few academics and writers surv...

A bear got into a backyard hot tub and drank a guy's margarita

Not all heroes wear capes, people. Take this bear, for instance. Mark Hough of Altadena, California first spotted the bear climbing over his fence. He then witnessed the critter slipping into his (unheated) hot tub for a cool soak. Wait, it gets better. Then the bear knocked over and lapped up the margarita Hough had left by the edge of the tub. Later, the bear was found napping in a nearby tree. NBC San Diego: After first spotting the bear, Hough retreated inside, only to later find the fu...

Strawberry Margaritas

The seasons seem to start a little earlier in France than elsewhere, or maybe that’s just me. I tend to want to jump the gun as soon as I see strawberries or cherries at the market every spring. But I know that if I wait a few weeks, they’ll be a lot more abundant, and a lot better. Not to mention less-expensive, too. Once they go from “rarity” to available everywhere, I tend to go nuts, buying as much fruit as I can. I often joke that as a Californian, I am genetically-wired to eat fruit all ...

Patti Smith’s 40 Favorite Books

Image of Patti Smith performing in Rio de Janeiro by Daigo Oliva As a little girl, Patti Smith found liberation in words -- first through the bedtime prayers she made up herself, and later in books. "I was completely smitten by the book," she writes in her memoir, Just Kids.  "I longed to read them all, and the things I read of produced new yearnings." Smith found a role model in Jo, the tomboy writer in Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. "She gave me the courage of a new goal," writes Smith, "...
