Now that I have your attention, I wanted to share with you a few things about our North American hombre, Mexico.  Why?  Well, not just because I love Mexican, tequila, or some of the awesome Mexican restaurants that have emerged in Melbourne, but rather because this Sunday marks Mission's Mexican Festival in Melbourne. 

A celebration of Mexican Independence Day, the free festival is set to bring Federation Square alive in an array of Mexican brilliance.  As the culture that brought us the likes of tomatoes, avocados, burritos and tequila - not to mention piñatas, ponchos and sombreros - it is definitely something worth celebrating!  

Last year, over 25,000 people flocked to the fiesta and this year is anticipated to be even bigger.  You can expect markets, Mexican entertainment, a kids corner for the niño pequeños, Spanish lessons, even some zumba.  You'll also be joining the tasty likes of Touche Hombre, Mamasita, Los Amates, Dos Diablos, and more.  With 15,000 tacos and more than 5,000 packets of corn chips ready at the stand-by, will they have enough?  I don't know about you, but I've never left a Mexican restaurant hungry...

I attended the official launch of Mission's Mexican Festival this week at Mad Mex in QV - there was tequila, there was DIY burrito making, there were margaritas.  Here's a snap shot of the night to get you in the mood for this weekend's Mex fiesta!
