Erik Estrada Celebrates Cinco de Mayo at Tacos & Tequila

Television icon Erik Estrada celebrated Cinco de Mayo with a fiesta at Tacos & Tequila (T&T) at Luxor. Hundreds gathered for the CHiP’s-inspired bash, including local celebrity talent and performers such as Carrot Top, “Baywatch” beauty Angelica Bridges and the cast of FANTASY, Defending The Caveman’s Paul Perroni, members from Thunder From Down Under, Sandra Benten and Lori Legacy from Menopause The Musical, comedian magician Murray Sawchuck and illusionist Jonathan Silver. The entertainers all walked the red carpet donning a traditional sombrero before heading inside to enjoy the fiesta.

The evening's festivities included a “Miss Hot Tamale” competition. Guest judges were Estrada, Bridges and KVBC entertainment reporter Alicia Jacobs. Jennifer Affrot was one of 11 contestants to compete in the all-out battle of brains, beauty and brawn to win the coveted title, a one-year modeling contract with T&T and Hennessey Black and a $5,000 cash. Her runner up, Rashel Razza took home a $500 cash prize.
