Saturday June 25th Around 6PM

I am not a big fan of Mariachi Music. Especially when I'm choking down a burrito at a cheesy Mexican restaurant. I hate those roaming bands that go from table to table, because you have to stop eating and acknowledge them, and I assume tip them. Something I have never done. You don't tip Mariachi bands or feed stray cats. It only encourages them to return. On a warm June evening, with the grill fired up last Saturday, I was the unwilling audience along with all my other neighbors to a Mariachi serenade. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Washtenaw Avenue Mariachi Band.



  1. we had a Mariachi band in church on Sunday as a surprise for one of our young priests that is moving on to a new parish - he's from Mexico ! Sounded weird to hear it in church. But it was fun!

  2. and it was Mariachi Day by the way. That sure didn't sound like a mariachi band to me!

    1. I think is was just Mexican, maybe not Mariachi. They are Mexican, and they had the horns and accordion. The drummer was awful as you can tell. Too much cow bell.
