PR girl and I caught Lucha VaVOOM‘s 2012 Valentine’s Day Special Show, Lucha is for Lovers, at the Mayan Theatre in Downtown LA. For 3 hours or so, we were entertained with Lucha Libre wrestling, some talented burlesque dancers, comedic hosts, and even a wedding ceremony. Over the top at times, it was still some pretty good, clean fun!
That’s one of the crowd favorite Luchadores, Dirty Sanchez, above, walking around during intermission. Very cool.

The other day, I joined the MOCA Contemporaries to check out the Broad Art Foundation, which highlighted many great works by notable artists like Anselm Kiefer, Christopher Wool, Albert Oehlen, Richard Prince, Cindy Sherman, Jenny Saville, Elliot Hundley, Gregory Crewdson and many more….
The whole experience took about 2 hours. It was pretty fun. Here are some of the highlights…….
