¡Ole! Thursday is Cinco de Mayo, the Mexican holiday commemorating the win over the French Army at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. The holiday is meant to celebrate Mexican culture with parades, food and music.
In the states, we like to do it with Mexican beer and tequila.
Check my column on Thursday for details, but here’s what’s going on:

I have an assignment for you (I mean “you,” of course, in the collective sense.)
A reader of my column wrote to me seeking the names of area bars (that is, taverns or pubs or clubs) that are non-smoking. Off the top of my head I can only think of Fisaga Cafe in Camp Hill, and that is not currently open.
We are not looking for BYOB restaurants, but for places that serve alcoholic beverages but do not permit smoking of any kind. An exception may be a spot that has a smoking section that truly works.
I intend to make this the focus of a future column. Your help in identifiying these locations is appreciated.
Please post your information in the Comments section below, or email me.
I’m working on a story on bloggers – sort of who, how and why, but without turning into a “how to” guide or “for dummies” manual. I will cover the best ways to get started, however, so if you have suggestions (something besides blogger.com), feel free to submit those as well.
By today, I’ll be emailing some local Harrisburg-area bloggers. If I don’t contact you, and you’d like to be a part of my story, please feel free to comment below or email me.
I’m interested in what you choose to blog about, whether it’s more of a personal diary, largely politics-oriented or a local news blog (or something else!), and why you blog.
