Burlesque and Mexican wrestling — two great tastes that taste great together

Several nights ago, I happened to be at my local watering hole, and a gentleman down the bar struck up a conversation with me. Turns out, he’s a promoter for some events up at the Congress Theatre, including a monthly Mexican wrestling event. And, more importantly, a half-burlesque show, half-Mexican wrestling event.

I have to admit that it seems a little bit odd. I mean, burlesque, okay, funny costumed wrestlers, okay. But, smashing them together into one spectacular one-night-only event? It’s not exactly a natural combination like chocolate and peanut butter, now, is it?

On the other hand — when a man offers you free tickets to go see something like this, it would be churlish to refuse. Besides, when else are you going to get an opportunity like this?

So, I think I’m going to email him and take him up on it. Live a little, you know? This could change my life forever. Expand my horizons. Whole new vistas of possibility. And all sorts of other cliches. But there’s only one way I can find out.

    This post is awesome, not only for the pure strangosity of the event but you also receive extra points for use of the word “churlish.”
