    Big celebrations over here?.... well, there's a party always, and around here everybody has music playing all the time somewhere, but big celebrations?...

    well, there's mostly religious celebrations about saints and stuff, like "La chinita" in Maracaibo, one of the big cities, on the west of the country; a countrywide one would be Carnival, with LOADS of parades and costumes and stuff, also we celebrate the entire Holy week, and the whole week if free (no schools ), we don't have Halloween officially, though there's still decorations around.

    I don't really remember all of them right now, but we have many celebrations

    For Mexican Playgrounders, are you planning something for the 15/16 of the month?

    NOT going over to the Distrito. Other than that, nope. Maybe a family reunion of sorts.
    Others?

    I live in the States, so... maybe I'll order tequila at the bar instead of vodka. *nod nod*

    Mexico independence day.

    I'm so disgusted at current political events, I'll likely do absolutely nothing for the 15/16.

    Well, I don't feel our politics should be taken into account for national holidays. That doesn't change the fact that I still don't care much for the so-called "Independence Day" (More like, Independence Beginning Day).

    Well in my case it is mostly an excuse to party and drink a lot, and since one of my high school friends is going to host a party that is what I'll do.

    Yeah, that's mostly what I do.
    September 7th a national holiday around here - the declaration of republic. My thoughts about it can be summed up by this song. If somebody wants the lyrics or a translation, PM me.

    You know, I've always thought that. Americans celebrate the 4th. of July, which is the date their Declaration of Independence was adopted and signed, while we celebrate September 15/16, the date.... the war for independence started. It wasn't over for 11 years after that... I wish we celebrated the date the war ended instead.

    I dunno, though. The thought of celebrating something when the current stuffs feel so... icky... it just doesn't appeal to me. I kind of feel like I'd be applauding the stuffs I'm upset about.

    Not really; but

    a) I haven't seen some of my highschool friends in over a year and this is the perfect opportunity to catch up

    and

    b) Can't afford my own alcohol at the moment...

    Man, that sucks.
    Btw, tequila is like really cheap on Mexico, right? It's very expensive here. A bottle costs around 80 reais (around 40 dollars).

    Eh it is not that I am broke; but as a 19 years old, full time student whose income depends on his parents. Alcohol is low on my priority list.

    I thought as much, but how much does a bottle of tequila cost in Mexico? I'm just curious.

    It ranges, but you can get some fairly good quality tequila for about 150 pesos. (About 11 or 12 dollars.)

    I am suddenly glad I live in a country where alcohol is (relatively) cheap (most of the time).

    Then again, I always end up making dragons if I have multiple kinds, so I probably should stop doing that.

    Beer is cheap though; but beer hang-over is the worst... or at least they are to me, last time I got drunk entirely on beer I couldn't step out of bed the next day due the pounding headache and nausea.

    Getting drunk entirely on beer is way more expensive than getting drunk on most other things, though. You need a lot more beer.

    It's basically what I ended up calling a drink I ordered in Scotland, and yes it is a mixed drink. It was a quarter each of Scotch, vodka, rum and gin and burned like the snog of a dragon on its way down.

    I based it on a drink my ex made on my request when she stayed at someone else's place where her host had a lot of various kinds of alcohol. She mixed together whiskey, vodka, rum, cognac, and at least one more I believe, possibly even more than that. I kept it in an old plastic Coke bottle for several months before opening it up. It was delicious, and also burned a little. It tasted much better than the new attempt.

    I have, however, checked online if there are drinks called "dragon" and I managed to find one site with various alcohol recipes with some of them having "dragon" in the name, which are all mix drinks, most of them including vodka. There is also apparently a drink called Green Dragon, but that is more meant as a drug extract than an alcoholic beverage...

    One of my friends who tasted of my drink in Scotland told me the whole idea of it reminded her of a drinking game common among students here supposedly, where people end up mixing up to about 7 different kinds of alcohol together, and noted that "you're missing Bailey's", which is a milky kind of alcoholic drink I believe. That's also why I ended up refusing to get some Bailey's to mix in there as well, as I don't like those kinds of drinks and prefer mine clear.

    I'm looking forward to trying a Dragon with tequila in it someday.

    Beer is good. And very cheap in Brazil. Except for good beer. Which is expensive. But good. Like, very good.

    There is a drink here in Brazil called So Joo da Barra. It's tar cognac. My friends and I first learned about it from a taxi driver. Everytime someone is dared to drink it, hilarity ensues.

    Brazilians on exchange up here mentioned it. It appears it's not sold anywhere else. And I think its alcoholic content is high enough to be illegal in Mexico.
