Local Music & A Wedding!

Hi everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! Mine’s been SO busy and hectic these past few days! I just want to slow down and chill but more stuff keeps coming up! Where does the time go? I’m currently working on a project for a marketing company in St. Louis. I have a couple of other freelance projects due within the next few weeks as well! I had every intention of blogging on Saturday but I got super busy! If you’ve been following me for a few weeks, you know I feature a local artist on Saturdays here.

For my local artist, I want to tell you about Sergio Carrasco. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have any videos on YouTube. I had the pleasure of listening to him jam at his sister, Sophia’s wedding on Saturday. Sergio played his guitar and sang “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys. He did a good job while adding his own touch to it. He played a show at downtown El Paso’s Bowie Feathers on June 15. Had I known about it before, I would’ve attended! Since Sergio was my neighbor growing up, I’ve seen him perform at various family parties throughout the years.

I’m not really a fan of attending weddings but…Sophia’s and a couple of others I’ve been to over the years have been fun! Here’s some photos I took of my family and neighbors growing up. The wedding after party will probably go on until 4 or 5 a.m. The neighbors cooked some pots of menudo, a Mexican soup that includes tripe and hominy. The sometimes spicy dish is usually eaten with a bread roll. Lime, diced onion and crushed red pepper can also be added for more flavor. Menudo is sometimes eaten to cure a hangover. Sophia and Isaac’s wedding included a Catholic church mass, dinner reception and dance. Have a great day, everyone! I’ll be back later on today or Monday.
