Culture on the Cheap
THIS WEEKEND: More Dia de los Muertos Fun
Once I recovered from the initial shock (the word “beaner” has a distinctly negative connotation where I come from) I realized that this is yet another event celebrating Dia de los Muertos this weekend. Things kicks off at noon on November 2 and include free drip coffee, a raffle and live jazz. They will also be serving up a $5.00 “Mexican plate” which includes a tamale, rice and beans and a sugar skull. All in all this sounds pretty interesting.

*Do you know how much it pains me to type this? Seriously. It’s almost up there with “coon”, “kike”, “wop”, “chink”, “gook” and of course the almighty “n-bomb”.
