'Dia del Disco' at Amador Live


Amador Live, 302 S. Main St., will host “Dia Del Disco” beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 16.

There is no cover charge to attend the event, which will be fun for the whole family, said Amador Live owner Max Bower.

Celebrating the Mexican War of Independence that began Sept. 16, (Diez y Seis de Septiembre) 1810, the event will include a disco cookoff among five groups – four from Las Cruces and one from Anthony, Bower said. Samples of the food the prepare will be offered to the first 200 people at the cookoff, he said. Judges will determine the cookoff winner.

Discada, or “disc” cooking is “the way a lot of people cook,” Bower said. It involves a variety of meats, vegetables and spices and includes both the cooking ware used to prepare the meal and the process of preparing it.

“It’s a lot of fun to watch,” Bower said.

The event will also include DJ Mike G, “a Las Cruces favorite,” Bower said, in the afternoon and the Tejano band Master Cuatro from El Paso, mariachis and folklorico dancers. Live music begins at 7:30 p.m. There will also be more than two dozen classic and modern cars on display on the Amador Live lawn and in the parking lot, Bower said.
