10 Things Every Person Dating A Puerto Rican Should Know

Fox

Maybe I’m biased because I’m Puerto Rican myself, but Boricuas simply do it better. And by “it,” I mean “everything.”

Whether you’re dating a Puerto Rican (Congratulations!) or happen to be Puerto Rican yourself (again, congratulations!), you can sit back, relax and enjoy this list:


1. Their tías will grill you 24/7.

This will be fun for no one. In fact, it will be awful. But you have to remain strong for your bae, and then pray to the Holy Lord above that all these tías chill out.

2. You will play dominoes with Abuelo at some point.

Here’s the thing: it’s actually really fun. And who knew a bunch of old Puerto Rican men knew how to throw such made shade during a game?!

3. Plátanos will become your new favorite dish.

Ugh, I’m drooling just typing this. Plátanos are delicious and when fried…oh baby, you better get ready to be obsessed.

4. You will end up owning a piece of clothing with the Puerto Rican flag on it.

Better to just grin and bear it. Also, let’s be honest, that is an awesome flag!

5. One day you’ll see that your couch has been completely covered in plastic.

When you confront bae about it, they won’t even realize they did it. It’s just been ingrained inside of their brain for so long that they did it without even thinking.

6. You will meet a ton of cousins. No really, a ton.

I know, it doesn’t seem possible for a person to have this many primosbut it’s true.

8. You will fall in love with adobo and sazón.

These Latinos Are Showing Trump Revenge Is A Beer Best Served Cold

If there’s one thing drinkers need, it’s an excuse to drink. Well here’s one for our Chicago friends.

From now until the elections in November, Rogers Park Social is donating one dollar to the American Civil Liberties Union for every pint of Chinga Tu Pelo sold.

While an obvious nod to Donald Trump’s hair, Chinga Tu Pelo isn’t just a marketing ploy or a cheap attempt at throwing shade. Chinga was originally sold in Trump Towers as Trump Golden Ale, but 5 Rabbit Cerveceria, the Latino-owned brewery behind the beer, cut ties with Trump after he claimed that undocumented Mexicans are rapists and drug dealers.

“We would be doing an injustice to the community we serve (and live in) by engaging in business with someone who does not accept our role in society and expresses a rhetoric of hate and ignorance towards us,” Andres Araya, part owner of 5 Rabbit Cerveceria, told Chicago Radio Station WBEZ.

After splitting ways with Trump, 5 Rabbit Cerveceria was confronted with a problem: what to do with the excess of Trump Golden Ale kegs they had lying around? Rather than doing what I would do – drink it all – they decided to turn lemons into alcoholic lemonade, rebranding “Trump Golden Ale” as Chinga Tu Pelo.

Support for the 5 Rabbit Cerveceria has paid off with patrons.

5 Rabbit Cerveceria even went so far as to commemorate their beer with its own t-shirt.

Though Rogers Park Social has agreed to sell the beer through the election cycle, they don’t consider their company politically motivated.

“We usually wouldn’t want to take a particular political stand as a business, but living in one of the most diverse neighborhoods around, it makes sense to support this local brewery and their awesome products,” manager Wally Anderson told Chicago’s Block Club.

If you happen to be in the Chicago area between now and November, stop by and grab a nice cold Chinga knowing that your money is going to a good cause.

And if you’re not in the area, have no fear, Chinga Tu Pelo just might be coming to a bar near you.
