Hamburger sliders and mini pulled pork sandwiches, accompanied by parmesan fries and plenty of potent spirits, made for a lively evening of comradery and fervent debate at the re-opening of the American Legion Alan Seeger Post 2 in Mexico City’s Colonia Condesa on Friday, Oct. 22.
The all-new Texas-style menu and ample mixology bill of fare, along with the down-home friendly ambience in the newly renovated premises, drew an active crowd reminiscent of the days when the post was the go-to hangout for veterans and other members of Mexico’s U.S. expat community.
Open Tuesday through Sunday from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m., the Alan Seeger Post 2 is one of the oldest surviving American Legion posts worldwide, and its membership is open to both active and former members of U.S. armed forces.
Headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, and the American Legion has nearly 3 million members in more than 14,000 posts worldwide.
The American Legion Alan Seeger Post 2 is located at Celaya 25 in Mexico City’s Colonia Condesa (tel: 55-5564-4490). It is open Tuesday through Sunday, from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. Its webpage is currently being renovated, but the post can be reached through email at firstname.lastname@example.org
