Va Va Voom


For Valentine's Day we went to the Lucha Va Voom Valentine's Sextacular at the Mayan theater downtown. The entire event is a crazy mish-mash of comedy, Burlesque dancing, and Mexican wrestling.

The evening's commentators were Blaine Kapatch and Tom (voice of Spongebob) Kenney. We had some shots of tequila, and for a few moments, the room really looked like it does in the above photo.



The Burlesque performers included four girls dressed as cavewomen, trapeze artisits, a guy on a Pogo stick, and Leroi La Girl Boi, who seemed to really be enjoying herself on that chair.


Karis did some amazing trickery with a Hula Hoop. It was sort of like a gay Cirque du Soleil. Er, make that, an even gayer Cirque du Soleil?

There were several wrestling matches. One of the higlights was the battle of the "minis".



Here's one of the "minis" making his grand entrance.


Sometimes the wrestling and the Burlesque collided into one great super blend of stripping and fighting.

Obviously, there wasn't a huge backstage, because the girls and the wrestlers were always getting ready right behind the ringside seats.

This was great because I got to meet some of the "Buxoticas"...





...and Gina got to meet crowd favorite Dirty Sanchez!



Lucha Va Voom was the perfect Valentine's party. They lived up to their promise of "sexo y violencia".

You can see a lot more pictures from our evening here.
