Your favorite New Yorker and VPM’s Sales Manager, Nicole Prechtl, talks about why she’d rather have a fiesta at home for this year’s Cinco de Mayo. As always advised, grab yourself some Advil, and we’ll let her take it from here:
“This month I’m going to change it up a little bit by sharing a real life story. Keep in mind that Cinco de Mayo is one of my top 5 favorite holidays of the year.
Last year on Cinco de Mayo I had lunch at El Rio on 38th and 3rd. I highly recommend this place 364 days a year, but never on this holiday. It took over 2 hours to eat as the place was packed. Now for the good part: while walking the four blocks from El Rio to my office, I saw a ridiculous amount of people stumbling around, pretending that they just sipped their first margarita ever. As I’m standing on the north east corner of 38th and Lexington, I smell something a little funny. I turn slightly to my right and see that a girl had puked literally three inches from my shoe (good thing for her she didn’t get a drop on me). She looked up at me and screamed ‘What!’ as if it was me who had done something out of the ordinary. Seriously, you have to be kidding me.
Due to this horrific experience last year, I will be ordering lunch to the office on Thursday, and will proceed to make homemade margaritas at my apartment with a few close friends after work.
