But, in our thorough research, we have come to one very obvious conclusion: if you want to go as a food this year for Halloween, just don't. Food costumes only work for the pets and the children. (And even the kids don't come away fully unscathed.)
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.
