“Metalachi” at the CAVE

Feb 11, 2017 | 06:30PM – 10:00PM

On a hot, hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982, Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated shanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as an innocent night of snorting horse tranquilizers in a hotel room with seven members of the village jai alai team went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live. Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard children where born. Unable to care for her hungry offspring and concerned that motherhood would seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to America in search of a better life.

Against all odds, 14 years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio Grande just outside of Juarez Mexico –mere yards from the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather restraints and scampered the vast reach of the river, collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. As if by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tanned faces was a record sleeve upon which were the words “PARANOID” and “BLACK SABBATH”. For many years to follow, this definitive black metal album served not only as a teacher and a mentor..but also as a friend. From these bleak and humble begins grew the seed that would eventually be the band we know today. Often referred to as the greatest heavy metal band to ever live..always referred to as…METALACHI.

The Cave is a new, intimate music venue in Big Bear that promises to bring you up close and personal with its performers. Doors open at 6:30pm; opening act featuring “The Gary Watson Band” at 7:30pm, “The Stranger” makes his debut 8:30-9pm. Call or visit website for ticket information.

girlsjustwannalogoI turned 43 yesterday. I have no problem with admitting that as some women might. Age is just a number, in my opinion and we are truly only as old as we let ourselves be. Of course, things can happen (and have happened to me) to ‘age’ a person such as health issues and traumatic experiences, but with the right mindset and a healthy sense of adventure, we can stay ‘young’ throughout our life. I also think it is important to nurture our friendships. There is nothing like getting together with a group of old friends to keep you young.

Recently, while researching upcoming events in Big Bear, I came across a group called “Women’s Edventures”. No, not a typo. The program combines ‘education’ and ‘adventure’ and is designed specifically for women. They have some upcoming dates here at Big Bear Mountain Resort and it sounds like a lot of fun! Look for my post tomorrow where I will give you all of the specifics!

This got me thinking about how much fun a group of women could have here in Big Bear for a weekend. You could ski or snowboard, take a snowshoe tour (more about that later in the week!), go to a cooking demonstration at the Copper Q (See my post about them here), hit one of our spas for a massage or a mani/pedi, eat some great food at one of our many terrific restaurants…..There is so much to do!

So Ladies, why not give a few of your friends a call and plan a ‘girl’s weekend’ in Big Bear. We here at RS Vacations have a wide selection of cabins to accommodate most any group and all of our homes are just a few minutes to the slopes, shopping, dining and more. Visit us at RSVacations.net today and get started on a weekend of fun that will keep you young!
