‘Cinco De Mayo’ Book Gets Second Edition

AUSTIN, Texas -- The highly anticipated Second Edition of "Cinco de Mayo: What is Everybody Celebrating" (ISBN: 978-1792371936; Condesa Publications) by author Donald W Miles has been released. "Cinco de Mayo: What is Everybody Celebrating" is an informative high school and college level text about the history of Cinco de Mayo.

One of the few age-appropriate texts for teens and young adults learning about the history of the holiday, the book is a deep dive into the French Invasion of Mexico, and why Cinco de Mayo celebrations became so popular within the United States. With a wealth of historical information that can be used year-round to supplement curriculum in Spanish language and history classes, the book is the perfect addition to a classroom.

The original 2006 edition has now been updated to include color photographs in every chapter and maps to help readers navigate the story. There's also a new cover which has already won graphics awards for the book design firm that created it. The photos were taken by the author and his wife (who is originally from Mexico City) during more than 50 years of family visits and travel to as many as 53 cities in Mexico.

"The style is pacey, flowing and dramatic, colorful and often funny. Cinco de Mayo is an enjoyable read for history buffs, no matter what their favorite nation or time is," said Joy Calderwood of Reader's Choice Reviews.

Don Miles brings out many colorful and human aspects often lost in the traditionally technical histories," said Dr. Robert Pierce, Professor Emeritus, Journalism and Communications, University of Florida. "His intimate knowledge of the Mexican culture is reflected in all that he writes."

Melita’s Table Delivers a Revolutionary Cinco De Mayo Feast

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Cinco de Mayo has become one of the most beloved and celebrated days of the year. Though many Nevadans will enjoy the historic date at home this year, there's no reason to avoid dancing, margaritas and an amazing vegan taco creation made special by Melita's Table.

In November 2019, veteran Vegas restauranteur Kori McClurg opened Melita's Table, a plant-based delivery and catering only kitchen concept. Las Vegas has happily embraced this healthy, all-natural Latin-based option.

To celebrate the success, and provide vegan delights for Cinco de Mayo, Melita's Table has created Butter Lettuce Shell Tacos. The new shells provide a zesty alternative to the flavorless iceberg lettuce wraps of old.

Try a revolutionary taco trend to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, which commemorates the 1862 Mexican military victory over the French forces of Napoleon III.

The new butter lettuce wraps provide plenty of space to pile on quinoa, lentil picadillo and marinated citrus portobello. The new taco design delivers all the flavor without the gluten or meat.

Melita's Table is not just for those with special dietary needs. We are here to provide all-natural Latin offerings to customers who crave Old World flavors fused with modern-day health options; including nut-free, soy free, gluten free, and oil free menu items.

Melita's Table is aimed at customers who demand meals that stress healthy ingredients and environmental sustainability.

"Amazing flavor is what we do," McClurg said. "We bring Old World wholesome foods right to your door."

Don't let this year's Cinco de Mayo go to waste with second-rate food. Think like a health-minded revolutionary. Go for the zest and zing with Butter Lettuce Shell Vegan Tacos loaded with juicy and flavorful citrus portobello, cucumber salsa, cilantro, guacamole and pico.

Our Butter Lettuce Shell Tacos are not just amazing, but they go perfectly with our incredible Tres Leches Cake. This traditional Latin treat comes saturated with a sweet frosting glaze. The cake is so good, you might not want to share. But in the spirit of May 5th, we're sure you will find a way.

All of our gluten-free and vegan offerings are available for delivery and pick-up through DoorDash, UberEats, Postmates and Grubhub.

Let's celebrate Cinco de Mayo together with the best and healthiest food since the revolution. Viva Cinco de Mayo and taco lovers everywhere.
