Me? I'm working and staying at home. Around here, if you don't have a Mexican flag on your car it's just better not to even leave your house. Sad how some bad elements have really soured this day/weekend for a whole lot of the Denver-Metro area.

In Mexico, it is a more subdued holiday. In the Southwestern US, its an excuse to party and for Corona to sell lots of beer. Think of it as a Mexican St. Patrick's Day.
