Your Cinco de Mayo Preparedness Kit

Cinco de Mayo: a full two weeks away. And this year, well... you’re thinking of doing something different. Something bigger. You’re thinking of going in with... a plan. Everything that follows: elements of that plan, on a six-level fiesta ambition scale. Vaya con Dios...

UD - Caterpillar Rim Salt

LEVEL DOS

Caterpillar Rim Salt

UD - A Piñata of Your Face

A Piñata of Your Face

Order two weeks in advance, $250 and up, Custom Piñatas by Jing Yu, email here
