Monday, 5 May 2014: May the Fifth be with you at Whole Foods (Montrose)

wholefoodswaughNo, we’re not suggesting that you bootleg something harder than the excellent beer and wine selections available at Whole Foods, 701 Waugh Dr.  You may want to pick up some munchies before you head over to the Bayou Bar, but leave the hip flasks at home.  See you there at 8 PM.

On this day in 1862, Mexican forces under the command of Texas-born general Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín defeated a much larger and better-supplied French army at Puebla de Los Angeles (later Puebla de Zeragoza, now more informally just “Puebla”).  The victory was non-strategic, but it did boost Mexican morale during the Maximilian Affair.  Which just goes to show that we don’t have good names for conflicts anymore (cf. The Pastry War).
