Top 15 ways to tell it's a LATINO birthday party

  1. Some of the guests didn't bring a gift – but brought extra uninvited kids.
  2. The party is separated into women cooking, men drinking, and kids playing.
  3. The party is at Chuck E. Cheese but they brought their own food, cake and a Piñata.
  4. It's a child's party, but there are more grown ups than children.
  5. It's Mijo's 1st birthday and the party food is carne asada, arroz, frijoles and 10 cases of beer.
  6. For entertainment, instead of playing pin the tail on the donkey, there is usually a televised baseball or FUTBOL game, or a live fight.
  7. The party was supposed to be over at 5pm, but its 7:30pm and the party is just starting.
  8. The host calls someone who's on their way and tells them to stop and get some tortillas and ice.
  9. You hear someone go up to the birthday child and say, "Mira, que lindo. I'm going to have to get you something next week when I get paid."
  10. The party is Saturday, and you get a call from the hostess Friday saying," I'm giving Mijo a birthday party tomorrow at 3pm"
  11. Some guest bring gifts that are still in the Wal-Mart bag.
  12. The cake didn't come from the store; it came from the mother of the comadre of your best friend's sister who makes really good cakes.
  13. You are told you have to save your plate and fork you ate your food with, so you can eat your cake.
  14. Guests automatically wrap up a plate of food and cake to take home.
  15. It's Mijo's birthday, but since his cousin Maria is there and her birthday is in a few days, it becomes Mijo's and Maria's party.
