According to Mayan prophecy, based on the conclusion of the b’ak’tun (the cycles of the Mayan calculations for their Long Count Calendar) the world will come to the end of days on December 21, 2012 (talk about a “Black Friday”). This early Olmec writing system predicts cataclysmic and transformative events for an end-date in a 5,125-year-long determinative cycle that will bring a finish to this world that we know and inhabit.
If this apocalypse does reach its conclusion (and many are quite skeptical of such predictions) we here at Maria’s feel it best to herald in the “New Age” with a hedonistic bacchanal that we’re calling MAYAN FREAK OUT! We’ll be trying to re-align the universe with a group of well balanced cocktails and superbly crafted beers while listening to a diverse selection of south of the border tunes selected by DJ Popol Bryl including sixties Mexican rock and roll, jukebox mambo, bombastic boogaloo, Columbian cumbias and mucho cha cha chas.
