Craft beer isn't exactly new but the trend is only getting hotter. Celebrity chef Rick Bayless, who we all know for his gourmet Mexican cooking, recently announced that he will be teaming up with the distributors of Corona and Negra Modelo to create his very own craft beer.

In case you didn’t know (and I definitely didn’t), tonight is a pretty big boxing match. Mexican boxer Robert Guerrero is taking on Floyd Mayweather, Jr., in what is sure to be an epic showdown in Las Vegas.
Although Guerrero was named “Fighter of the Year” in 2012, “Money” Mayweather’s is still considered the best pound for pound fighter. He’s a five-division world champion who has never been defeated. I repeat: he is currently undefeated, aka he’s really good at kicking ass.

Ah, Cinco de Mayo. A day of fun, food, and plenty of margaritas. This year, as you plan your fiesta, don't skimp on the snacks. Mexico has a rich and delicious cultural heritage that spans the gamut from small savory bites to indulgent sweets. So, while you're mixing up a pitcher of your favorite margarita, spend some time in the kitchen loading up on savory skirt steak tacos, fresh from the ocean ceviche tostadas, smoky chicken flautas, and plenty of warm tortillas to serve alongside with chunky, rich fresh guacamole and spicy salsas.

Once upon a time, 420 (4:20 or 4/20) held special meaning for a select group of marijuana smoking insiders who were in on the toking. These days, however, with 18 states from Arizona to New Jersey, plus the District of Columbia, having legalized the use of medical marijuana, the definition of 420 is cult no more. Tomorrow, on April 20th (aka 4/20), there will be plenty of legit celebrations taking place from Atlantic to Pacific shores.
