I was fortunate to be invited along with my good friend, Cristina Abaroa, to the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles to see Guadalupe perform with a Mariachi band as part of the Mexican Bi-centenial celebration. She had been the headliner at the Nokia theater the night before. It was one serious party. The music was amazing, the food was great and the tequila, well, was free flowing! Viva México!
