Making Grown Men Cry Since 1992
Love him or despise him, Albuquerqueans have paid close attention to the inflammatory wisdom of Gustavo “The Mexican” Arellano since we began running his column last year. He just published a new book called ¡Ask a Mexican! —a hilarious compendium of his finest columns. He’s traversing the solar system on a monster tour to promote his new baby. He’ll invade Puccini’s Golden West Saloon on Wednesday, May 9, in an event sponsored by Bookworks and the Alibi . Whether you want to shake the man’s hand or slap him across the face, it will be a night to remember. Festivities begin at 8 p.m. To give you a small taste of his spicy book, we’ve reprinted the prologue for your reading pleasure.
Arellano will be at Puccini’s Golden West Saloon (620 Central SW, 242-2353) Wednesday, May 9, in an event sponsored by Bookworks and the Alibi . If you’re under 21, you can enter through the back door starting at 7 p.m. The Mexican will sign his new book in a room where drinks will not be allowed. If you’re 21 or older, enter through the front door (imagine that!). The fabulous Le Chat Lunatique will play music throughout the evening (tip generously!). Come with questions for The Mexican, because at some point, Arellano will take the stage to answer queries he pulls from a hat. This event is free ! For more information, call 344-8139.
