The Las Vegas Puerto Rican Festival

A few weeks ago was the annual Puerto Rican festival here in Vegas and it would be our (My bestie Santiago & I) first time attending as Las Vegas residents. We would usually go to the one in the Bronx when we lived in New York so we were excited to see how Las Vegas celebrates our culture. We don’t know too many Puerto Rican’s here but we know a couple, Rudy & Urma, whom we absolutely love that we call our adopted family. They are a happily married elder couple from New… Read More

Gollo’s Annual Cholo Party at Beauty Bar!

Every year my friend Greg has a really huge cholo party at Beauty Bar for his birthday where everyone dresses up as cholos and cholas.

Vintage Vegas: Day 2!

When I was about 9 years old and my grandfather passed away, I was in shambles.

The stars formed pictures, some I can’t even remember, but in the dream I felt loved and that he would always be with me. The dream ended with my horse and I jumping off of a mountain cliff onto a bed of stars that smiled before… Read More

Puerto Rico: Day two!

Day two of my trip to Puerto Rico was another pleasant and relaxing day at the beach. My beau and I spent most of the day exploring the shore for seashells and ended up finding a lot more than we thought. As someone who used to want to be a Marine Biologist as a child, I am still really fascinated by marine life and the ocean. As a kid, I also truly believed I was Ariel in the flesh so I am sure my fascination with the ocean comes from me believing… Read More
