On a day like today, Val ‘El Machete’ Prieto was born

On a day like today, several decades ago, Val "El Machete" Prieto was born. Join us in wishing the founder of Babalú a very Happy Birthday as he celebrates his 39th year on earth for the umpteenth time.

The machete may be showing its age and isn't as sharp as it used to be, but it can still inflict some serious damage. ¡Así que cuidado!

Happy Birthday my brother from another mother!
