LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An author who is working on a project about Mexican restaurants in Kentucky will speak next month in Louisville on the popularity of Mexican cuisine.

Gustavo Arellano will speak Feb. 9 at the University of Louisville about how the margarita became a popular cocktail in the U.S., how college students love burritos and how Doritos were invented at Disneyland.

Arellano is editor of the alternative newspaper OC Weekly in Orange County, California. He also writes the syndicated “Ask a Mexican!” column that uses humor to explore issues such as immigration, labor and Mexican culture in the U.S.

Arellano is working on a Southern Foodways Alliance oral history project about Mexican restaurants in Kentucky.

He is speaking at 5:30 p.m. EST in Chao Auditorium of Ekstrom Library.
