Marching for science...and mezcal?!?

OK, not really marching for mezcal...but since we only do this once a week, we gotta multi-task!

As many of you wonderful people may know, this year's Earth Day celebration featured a pretty massive happening — the March For Science!

Boredwalk's political leanings are pretty self-evident in the designs we create, so we'll just say this: it was awesome to be part of a peaceful gathering of folks from across the political spectrum who recognize the value of science and STEM fields in both the US's growth (past, present, and future) as well as the world's, and believe public policy shouldn't just be dictated by gut feelings and confirmation biases, but be shaped by objective research and projectable data.

To that end, here are some of our favorite signs seen at the Los Angeles contingent of the March for Science! 

March For Science Posters - I Was A Test Tube Baby

This mother-daughter duo certainly owe a big thank you to scientific breakthroughs in reproductive health and fertility!

March For Science Posters - You Can't Just Make Shit Up

Turns out poo emoji are good for something other than Snapchat!

March For Science Posters - Vaccine Against Charlatans

These two posters were designed by our good friends at Intan Technologies, who design and manufacture specialized circuits & microchips for use in high-tech biomedical devices around the world. They're a small business based right here in Los Angeles!

All that marching can work up a mean thirst, which is why we're super-excited that today is Cinco de Mayo! One of our favorite watering holes is Las Perlas in downtown LA, which specializes in mezcal, tequila, and cocktails. They usually open at 5pm, but hey, it's Cinco, so doors open at noon today! We have a bunch of shirts to print & pack before we knock off, but you can be sure we'll be dropping in this evening in our dopest Cinco de Mayo duds!

Lest you think Boredwalk only associates Cinco de Mayo with drinking, let's hear it for the brave Mexican soldiers that successfully defended Mexican independence against French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862 — you the real heroes!

Whether you're celebrating Cinco or not have fun this weekend, celebrate responsibly, and stay safe! And if you're looking to get some sweet swag for next year, don't forget to use the code LOVEBOREDWALK at checkout to take 20% off orders of $50 or more! Until next time,
