Just so you know, this image is from May 3, 1963, six months before tragedy, happy times, a good day for a motorcade, a great day for a drink and a backseat romp with the old lady. Short Order knows what you probably think when you see a picture of JFK and Jackie O in a convertible, this ain't the one.
Today is national tequila day. Here are some important things to remember. Don't drink and drive. If it's not "100% puro de agave" it's not really tequila. Despite what the entire rap industry would have you believe, there is life beyond Patron, and gold beats clear liquor. Try Sauza Hornitos, it gets the Short Order presidential cosign.
