McLean, Virginia — April 29, 2015

Did you know? Many people mistakenly believe Cinco de Mayo to be Mexico’s day of independence, but the holiday’s true origin is rooted in the year 1862, when the Mexican army achieved an unlikely victory against the French. And so every year, on the fifth day of May — El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (or The Day of the Battle of Puebla) — the Mexican people honor their history and heritage with culture… and cuisine. In celebration, the McLean, Virginia-based corporate and event caterer Boulevard Café Catering is offering a scrumptious menu of traditional Mexican dishes, available to feed 12 or more guests, May 4-8.
