I like to think that I have my thumb on the pulse of the Nacho Nation, being the world’s foremost expert on nachos and all, but sometimes things slip through my grasp. This is probably due to all the cheese and chip grease on them, but that’s nacho fingers for you. One of the nacho things that I recently overlooked was the release of a new nacho tome, The Nacho Manifesto, by Jack Campbell. One hand wipe, visit to a popular online book retailer, and two days later, I rectified that situation.Read More
Remember last year when you waited until the absolute last minute to get the nacho lover in their life something for Christmas and swore that this is the last time you’d wait so long to get your act together? Well I certainly do, which is why I’m making sure to get this 2018 nacho gift guide together for you ASAP so you’ll have a whole month to find something! And boy oh boy, is there a fresh crop of nacho things available for you on the internet this year. Things like…Read More
Sometimes when you have a sibling they want to go to some place to eat for their birthday, and you really don’t have a call about where because it’s not YOUR special day. Occasionally they want to go to some garbage place and you just have to go along and eat whatever garbage food they want, just because they were garbage born. Other times though they pick some place delicious to eat, like The Painted Burro.Read More
Think about this:
(1) Ignacio Anaya invented nachos invented in 1943.
(2) November 6th has been designated as National Nacho Day.
(3) International Nacho Day was designated as October 21st.
(4) The exact date that the first order of nacho was created on is unknown, other than that it was in 1943.
(5) The exact year that National Nacho Day was designated is unknown.
(6) The year that International Nacho Day was designated was 1975, upon the death of Ignacio Anaya.
So do we:
(A) Say that today is the 75th National Nacho Day, and count it from the year nachos were created, even though it wasn’t made a holiday until later?
(B) Never celebrate National Nacho Day and instead switch to celebrating International Nacho Day so the whole world can join in?
(C) Say that nachos have been around for 75 years now, and just celebrate that on National Nacho Day, but don’t ever attribute a year to the number of National Nacho Days that have occurred?
(D) Debate what days really are and realize that time is a man-made construct and instead just eat and appreciate nachos every day?
We here at Nachonomics would never dream to tell you how you should be celebrating with nachos, other than to follow whatever food appreciating laws there are wherever you live, but we hope that you are celebrating them as much as you can. If it takes a made up holiday in order to do that then all the better, but know that nachos can be enjoyed no matter the day of the year that it is. Be sure to say that when you hit up your favorite nacho restaurant and see if they fall for it by giving you the holiday discount. Suckers.
Let me tell you about all the available nacho costumes for this Halloween as we quickly approach the holiday and the end of Octchober. Or rather I would if there were any to talk about, which there aren’t. I suppose the next best thing that I can do is show you all the ones that come close and bemoan the lack of true nacho costumes out there. Get on it Yandy!Read More
