Thanks To All For A Great Cinco De Mayo!

10 May

Cinco de Mayo Mexican HatThanks to everyone who made Sunday’s Cinco de Mayo #FBjam such a terrific success! The band all had a blast (we always do!), and from the amount of dancing in the aisles that was going on as pals took the opportunity to practice their samba, salsa and flamenco steps ahead of Miss Chilipepper’s Cinco de Mayo 17th birthday pawty I’d say the audience all had the same.

Cinco de Mayo tortillaSpecial thanks to @HRHDuchessII and @TweetingTruman, who made such a pawesome job of all the noms and drinks on a truly exceptional Menu – everyone enjoyed them immensely, and we’re all looking forward to the next one!

#FBjam is taking a break this Sunday to let pals (including the band members) to relax at NipClub, but don’t worry – we’ll be back as usual next week.

In the meantime, have a great weekend, and pawty on!

Feliz Cinco De Mayo!

Cinco de Mayo 1

Cinco de Mayo (5th of May) is a celebration of the cause of freedom and democracy which has been held since the first years of the American Civil War. It also commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, and is a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride as well as having long since become accepted as a multicultural excuse for a great pawty!

That’s why this week’s #FBjam will be a celebration of Mexicali, Tex-Mex and Latino music, noms and drinks. @HRHDuchessII has been busy in the kitchen cooking up a storm and @TweetingTruman has found some wonderfully tempting drinks, and you can get a sneak peek at the Menu here.

The band will be taking to the stage at 6pm EDT for 2 hours of great music for you to dance to, with songs made famous by Ritchie Valens, Herb Alpert, Chris Montez and many more.

Birthday girl - Miss Chilipepper

Birthday girl – Miss Chilipepper

One of the reasons we’ve chosen this theme is that the concert is also a warm-up to another bug Cinco de Mayo event when @Sisfurcats and @kittehboi host #chilipawty on Monday May5 from 2-8pm EDT (that’s 7pm-1am in the UK).

This is the fourth #chilipawty in honor of Miss Chilipepper’s birthday. They’re always great occasions, and this one is very special indeed as Chili will be 17 years old! Please mark your calendar, put a reminder on your phone, or do whatever it takes to make sure you’re available for this great pawty. All tips to staff will go to @blackcatrescue, the charity which helps the cats who face more prejudice than any other breed or color.

Oh, and if you RSVP and let @Sisfurcats know you’re planning to attend, they’ll put your picture in a special Friends block on their blog!

Hope to see you at both #FBjam and #Chilipawty, and in the meantime – Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
