What de Mayo?

Gov. Chris Gregoire's office sent word Thursday that she'll be attending the annual Cinco de Mayo reception for "brief remarks."

No big deal, you might say. The Hispanic population is growing in the state, and the guv can hardly ignore that.

The strange thing is the Cinco de Mayo reception is Friday night. As in May 2nd.

So how come the Cinco de Mayo reception is on Dos de Mayo? Isn't that like going to a Fourth of July party on July 1?
