To begin with a disclaimer, I should state my belief that nobody truly takes Manhattan, not even the Muppets.
Still, I don't get many chances to use Leonard Cohen lyrics in relation to my own life, and this is one of those rare times.
In short, on Wednesday May 6, at 6 p.m. I will reading and signing The Best Mariachi in the World/El Mejor Mariachi del Mundo at the Manhattan Barnes and Noble on the corner of 82nd Street and Broadway. The event listing is here, as well as in several New York-area event calendars.
And I am not the only entertainment. There will be a mariachi band to continue Cinco de Mayo into Seis de Mayo, and at least one school group of niños will be in attendance.
As you may suspect, the forecast calls for sombreros.
