They put together incredible tequila tastings with a very unique tequila brands mixed together with authentic Mexican food. I attended the 4EverTequila tasting at West End on 2/20/15 and had an amazing time.

Some of my favorites of the night were, Forrest with Arte NOM 1414 Seleccion it was a popular one. Rodolfo from Sin Rival was pouring Sin Rival Extra Anejo, Rosario with a Senda Real if you haven’t had it you must try it and Miguel introducing Aguila Real a new tequila from the highlands. If you wanted to take a short break from tequila tasting you could head over to the food and watch them make tortillas by hand and then have your choice of chicken, pork, beef, nopales… unforgettable Mexican rice, beans, quacamole… everything was incredible. I am looking forward to the next tequila event from 4EverTequila make sure you connect with them on Facebook so you don’t miss it, Salud!

American Flag Made In The USA, Is your Flag American?

Happy Memorial Day! A happy day it is, no work, no school, yet many think of this day as the first day of summer (June 21, 2014). As we all know it is not nor is it, Flag Day (June 14th), Veterans Day (November 11th) or a day to spend shopping going from one sale to the next. Memorial Day honors military personnel who died while in service. These men and women are true heroes; they voluntarily sign up to serve in a military where they know from one day to the next they could loose their life. Memorial Day, should be a happy day, most people what to be remembered in a happy way, and want to make others lives happy as they are remembered.

Looking around today one-thing stands out, The American Flag. It could be the “first day of summer” feeling as winter is in the past and it’s time to put up the flag. Or the fact that the American flag plays a big role in Memorial Day, when it represents everything that soldiers have fought for. You will notice today the flag is at half-staff until noon, after that it is raised to full staff. American flags are placed on all the graves at military cemeteries, and 3 p.m. is the traditional time to visit cemeteries. What a great symbol that stands for so many things to so many people. What a great symbol of quality when an American Flag is crisp, clean, well taken care and well made in the USA. The American Flag that you put up on this day or any other day is a reflection of you, people notice details and a flag that is well made in the USA says a lot. Some flags that won’t make it through the day, poor quality materials and stitching make it vulnerable to strong wind and can fade with the sun. I noticed my flag is made of sail material, what could withstand more than the material sailboats trust in the middle of the ocean. The label said Annin, what I soon found out was this company has been in business since 1847, it was started by Alexander Annin who began making US flags for the merchant ships in his sail-making shop on the New York waterfront in the 1820’s. The American flag was less than fifty years old when Alexander Annin began making US flags. It was an Annin flag that flew at the inauguration of President Zachary Taylor, starting an inaugural tradition that has continued through the inauguration of President Barack Obama. Annin supplied all the US flags for the Union troops during the American Civil War. An Annin flag draped the coffin of President Abraham Lincoln on its journey from Washington D.C. to Springfield, Illinois. The U.S. Marines raised an Annin flag atop Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima in 1945. NASA selected an Annin flag to participate in Apollo 11’s mission to the moon in 1969.

There are a lot of American Flags that look good, are well made in other countries or are less expensive. The point is pride, the US flag should be made in the USA with materials that are domestic in origin and that all processes in every step of its manufacture are completed in USA facilities with USA labor.   When you purchase an American flag make sure it is from Annin or another US manufacture that is “Certified Made in the USA”.

Happy Memorial Day, Is Your American Flag Made In The USA?
