This weekend there is a not-to-be-missed show: Lucha libre. Real luchadores from the homeland. Unfortunately I have an “engagement party” so I won’t be able to go support the homies. We don’t have engagement parties in Mexico. We have the asking of the hand, in which the woman’s family decides if the couple can marry (like that ever stopped them), about 3 wedding showers (one religious) – mucho dinero is received, bachelor/bachelorette party, the actual wedding, the after party or hangover party where a big pot of menudo (spicy soup made with hominy and tripe) is devoured by the still drunk guest the next morning…. no engagement party. Sadly for me, there are engagement parties here.
Anyway I will be jealous of anyone who attends the lucha libre.
7:00 PM to 10:00 PM – Lucha Libre Mexicana – National Western Complex
