Vigilantly Posted at the Intersection of Chickenmen, Hula Hoopists, and Buxom Tassle Twirlers
Cinco de Mayo has never looked better than on the stage of Lucha Va Voom, the mindblowing spectacle that squeezes masked Mexican wrestling (Lucha Libre) and sultry burlesque dancing onto one stage at the historic Mayan theater. There is no sensation quite like the swell of pride that happens when full-grown men (and a mini-man) dressed as chickens attack skeleton-suited hombres (and a mini-hombre) as the announcer proudly proclaims: Welcome to Los Angeles…
Lucha Libre is the hidden crown jewel of Los Angeles. Sure, Los Angeles has some pretty nice stuff: the beautiful weather, the beaches, and nomadic taco trucks that wander like clouds (shout out to Wordsworth, whaaat!) and shower your face with burritos. But what’s better than masked Mexican wrestlers? Nothing! Wait. One thing’s better: Off duty strippers. Off duty strippers and masked Mexican wrestling, together at last for the best thing L.A. has to offer since early nineties Raiders jackets. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Ladies and gents, birds and blokes, prepare to feast your orbs.
