On Tuesday, August 24, many of Vallarta’s gay bars sent representatives to Paco’s Ranch for SETAC’S “Manager’s Show”. At this event, employees from each bar did numbers in drag to help raise money for the many programs at Vallarta’s GLBT community center. Participating from Frida’s this year was bartender Mario. He’s the tall one, dressed as Frida Kahlo, below. His performance was a show-stopper. Simply terrific. (note: Mario and his gang are professional dancers since childhood, can ya tell?)

Hedwig, born a boy named Hansel in East Berlin, fell in love with an American G.I. and underwent a sex-change operation in order to marry him and flee to the West. Unfortunately, nothing worked out quite as it was supposed to – years later, Hedwig is leading her rock band on a tour of the U.S., telling her life story through a series of concerts at Bilgewater Inn seafood restaurants. Her tour dates coincide with those of arena-rock star Tommy Gnosis, a wide-eyed boy who once loved Hedwig… but then left with all her songs.
Starting Wednesday Aug 18, join us each Wednesday Night at 8:30 pm for Movie Night at Fridas. Apropriately, this week, we will watch the movie FRIDA with Salma Hayek. Free popcorn! 15 pesos beer.

Bar Frida will hold the second annual Easter Bonnet Contest on Sunday, April 4, 2010! (for photos from the event go to the gallery!)
Customers/Contestants are asked wear a bonnet of their choosing. Be as creative as you want to be! If it won’t fit under the low ceilings downstairs, you can enter through the rear and head straight for the balcony for a cool margarita! Tom says, “If you’ve got a nice basket, bring that too!”
Go simple and pretty or dramatic and splashy! There are great supply stores within a block or two of Fridas where you can make yourself as pretty as, well, a new hat. Get there early! 9pm starts the contestant parade with judges awarding prizes to the best through the night. How eggszzzciting!
