This Week in Ridiculous Holidays: May 20th – May 27th

We are seemingly short on holidays this week; likely because we are heading into Memorial Day, so the holiday makers wanted to give us some time to rest up for the big start of summer. But today is National Rescue Dog Day, so I want to see all your pups on the Twitter machine.

Monday, May 20th

I didn’t know I could just “be” a millionaire. Let’s make that happen.

National Craft Distillery Day

Would make more sense for this to be on Saturday…

World Paloma Day

Recipe for a paloma, the national drink of Mexico:

2 oz Tequila

1⁄2 oz fresh lime juice

Grapefruit soda, to top

Garnish – lime wedge or grapefruit wedge

Add tequila and lime juice to a highball glass filled with ice.

Fill with grapefruit soda and stir briefly.

I don’t know what grapefruit soda is, but that sounds delish.

I love me a good boat.

I occasionally still play this with real cards. Old school.

As long as you aren’t my neighbor, go for it!
