KANSAS CITY FEARS COVID-19 SPIKE AMID PACKED CLAY COUNTY MEXICAN RESTAURANTS ON CINCO DE MAYO!!!
Locals report a lively Cinco De Mayo in the suburbs of Kansas City as health experts both pro & amateur worry about the aftermath.
To wit . . .
NORTHALAND MEXICAN RESTAURANTS WERE PACKED WITH CINCO DE MAYO CUSTOMERS TODAY DESPITE CORONAVIRUS SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES!!!
There are three major Mexican restaurants along N. Oak in Kansas City, MO but subject to Clay County reopen regulations . . . And, obviously, almost ZERO ENFORCEMENT given social media reports of EPIC crowds.
Check FB, Twitter and a few other message board wherein a few locals offer worries but are mostly resigned to a lack of unanimity or leadership as the Greater KC Metro emerges from the pandemic lockdown.
Ironically, a close look at local liquor store shelves will even reveal a few leftover bottles of Corona before they stopped production.
And so, many locals are either ignoring the rules or hoping that reports of the virus are overblown.
Either way, whilst many Americans might not understand the celebration of the Battle of Puebla, defeat of French Empire and the Chicano Movement which popularized the holiday back in the 70s. The rising influence of Mexican death culture is apparent in Kansas City and across the nation given today's dedication to celebration in even the most dire circumstances.
