The first Don Quixoday took place on March 29, 2008, in the West Apartment of John B. and Matthew K., the two founders of the holiday. Motivated by their fondness of Mexican delicacies and love for partying, these two innovative men decided it was time for someone to take a stand for what they believed in. Thus, they went out and bought tequila, margarita mix, chips and salsa, tacquitos, and a variety of other Mexican foods that can be found in any local supermarket.
