Right now Southwest Blvd is teeming with party people and a diverse cross-section of working-class functional alcoholics are stuffing their faces with overpriced fried corn, meat and various starchy fare whilst long forgotten Mexican corridos play in the background.
It looks like a good time.
Moreover, the only talk of corona is a played out pandemic joke referring to the beer.
And so . . .
We're getting a peek at what the new normal looks like . . . The masks are myth among the local boozing class. Only the servers are wearing any sort of protection.
We'll wait to see if the world ends in the aftermath of the party but so far that hasn't happened.
Accordingly, in typical Mexican fashion we're taking off early and we might not check back in until noon tomorrow.
¡¡¡HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO KANSAS CITY!!!
Be careful out there!!!
