What have you done this weekend, people? Partied at the pool? Ate too much at barbecues? Whipped something up for party guests? Slept in? While you were doing all that, Eddie Huang was taking on casual racism by a little well-known Fox News pundit (maybe you've heard of him, this Bill O'Reilly character?) and writing book reviews for the New York Times. Someone is winning this weekend more than you are.
Gearing up for bad Cinco de Mayo decisions today? You have two options: one, read this now and consider it a cautionary tale whilst pursuing your own CDM hijinks later, or two, come back to this circa your hangover tomorrow and take comfort in a little commiseration.
We tapped some of our favorite chefs for their craziest Cinco de Mayo stories, and, as you can imagine, more than one of them were tricky to extract. Protips from the pros: avoid peach cocktail, keep your clothes on, don’t say Happy Cinco de Mayo in Mexico, and if anyone ever asks you what your craziest CDM story is, feign innocence.
