Who would have ever guessed that I would be torn as to which event to cover. And for a wrestler – which is even weirder for me!
The Laredo Wrestling Alliance have been increasing in size and reputation – so much so that former famous wrestler, Raven, is coming in to help them promote wrestling in Laredo. That is pretty neat for such a new group of amateur wrestlers. The co-founder states:
As you all know by know Raven will be in town promoting a future event with the L.W.A. and helping promote The L.W.A. a meet and greet session will be available at Lima Sol Bar & Grill on Friday, May 13, 2011 from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. but to get in you will need a ticket. Tickets are available with any L.W.A. wrestler for $10.00 tickets will get you into meet and greet Raven and into The Rude Awakening Event.
During the day the members will be getting some one-on-one time with Raven (or is it The Raven??). He will make his first public appearance at Limasol and you can ask El Partner if you are interested in tickets. Why the wrestlers are selling the tickets for Limasol and I don’t see promotion from Limasol is beyond me but I am a simple observer without all the facts. Still… the tickets are available from the LWA wrestlers, if you want AND one very important note – the tickets are for the Rude Awakening Wrestling Event coming up May 20th where you can catch local talent wrestling away. The tickets are a two-for so get them now for the Raven meet-and-greet and for the wrestling match coming up.
Now, the Cold Brew actually sent me a nice letter because their management was so excited about Raven’s appearance. He will be at the Cold Brew from 11pm onward and they will have live music by Dying Breed. The cover is $5 and not only will there be a meet and greet with Raven, there will also be music. Here is a bit of what the Cold Brew wrote:
We have remodeled the brew & it’s been under new mgmt for 3 1/2 years. It’s changed so much in the past few years… We’ve worked a lot & come a long way. Like I said as part of cleaning up the image we’ve been bringing out of town bands, karaoke every week, plan to bring more metal & perhaps a few celebrities here & there. We are very excited for Raven’s arrival next week. We will have a cover of only $5 dollars vs. $10 elsewhere. I believe he’s making two appearances and he’ll be with us from 11:30-12 to 2 am … Thank you, Cold Brew Mgmt!
Unfortunately for both, I have a date with my bed so I can wake up bright and early for a commitment at 6am on Saturday. Sorry LWA & the Cold Brew – thank you for the passes, though!
