Your Guide to Mexican Independence Day: Lo Más Chingón de Las Fiestas Patrias

On September 16, 1810 Father Miguel Hidalgo from Dolores, Mexico along with several conspirators – including Iganacio Allende and Doña Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez- rang the bell of his little church, calling everyone to rise up against the Spanish and cast off the 300 years of mostly devastating colonial rule (deadly epidemics that demolished the indigenous population, strict racial stratification, economic exploitation, etc.) This was the beginning of the Mexican Independence War, which lasted 10 years, and was pretty much a total downer. However! The end result – Mexican Independence – not only paved the way for Mexico’s self-determination, it also paved the way for an annual reventón of epic proportions. So it’s really the gift that keeps on giving. Here at Remezcla we want you to celebrate Mexican Independence in true Mexican style – con una corrida de juerga – so we’ve put together a guide for where to Eat/Drink/Party/Scream/Then Drunkenly Eat Some More in your city. ¡Qué viva México, carajo!

Miami

Okay, so only 1.01% of the total Latino population in Miami is Mexican, and 99% of that  1.01% probably consists of the Mexican telenovela stars that have relocated for filming (there are currently five telenovelas being shot there y’all!). We were unfazed by these statistics and still found some ways to celebrate Mexican Independence Day in Miami. Let one of the five Mexicans in the city  be your guide, take you out to one of these events, and show you how to drink tequila.
