Ahhh The Simple Life: A Masquerade Ball in Laredo? Who would have thunk?

A Modest Proposal : What says Laredo more than a Masquerade Ball?  That''s exactly what Main Street Laredo has up their sleeve. Well there's nothing "main street" about the outrages prices they're charging for such a bourgeoise-type event. How about a platinum table for $2,000? Are they going to wrap a folding table in reynolds wrap tin foil? 

What's next? Are we going to hear the Rey and Reyna proclaim "Let them eat cake" while they laugh at the commoners milling about downtown?

This would make a nice event to juxtapose right along side an Occupy Laredo rally.  How about it? They love dividing and standing apart from the common folk.

-Platinum Table $2,000
-Gold Table $1,500
-Silver Table $1,000
-Individual Tickets $100
Tickets can be purchased at:

Laredo Main Street
1000 Zaragoza, Laredo, TX 78040

Laredo Center for the Arts
500 San Agustin Avenue, Laredo, Texas 78040


  1. More like the petite bourgeoisie trying to become elite.

    Give me a pitchfork and a torch! I'll show em.

  2. At least the pitchfork and torches business will start ramping up with WBCA-like businesses on the increase.


  3. The rest of downtown will be hosting the other SOL event at the same time for all of us S*** Out of Luck.

  4. I guess those people will be wearing those "Amadeus" type masks that you hold up with one hand while you mingle around. A que cabeza le cabe?
