Win Tickets to Ooh La La Lucha

Imperial Restaurant in Ferndale, Michigan is one of the hippest places around and when it comes to Cinco De Mayo nobody throws a better party. Last year they established themselves as the tastemakers for the holiday by throwing a sold out event called Ooh La La Lucha. The event includes Lucha Libre wrestling, burlesque dancing, food, drinks and more. Next Saturday, May 2nd they will be hosting the second Ooh La La Lucha and it will be bigger and better than ever before.

The party has moved from Ferndale to The Masonic Temple in Detroit and they have planned even more to do. The night will feature performances by some of Detroit's best, including Roxi D'Lite and Lushes Lamoan. We had a chance to ask Imperial a few questions about the party and they were kind enough to give us a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky reader. To enter to win, please email your full name to with Ooh La La Lucha in the subject. We will draw a winner on Friday May 1st and email them details on how to claim their prize.

HID- Why do we celebrate Cinco De Mayo?
Imperial- "Cinco de Mayo is also referred to as El Día de la Battala (the Day of the Battle). It’s the day the Mexican Army scored an unlikely victory over the French forces at the Battle of Puebla. Everyone knows how Imperial loves an underdog! We thought it would be a blast to host our own battle with luchadores in the ring fighting it out for the title!"

HID- Why did you move the event to The Masonic Temple this year?
Imperial- "Ooh La La Lucha sold out in advance last year - it was a huge hit with lines down the street of people we had to turn away - so, to say the least, we out grew our space in Ferndale. The Masonic is a perfect fit and hopefully will be its permanent home."

HID- Why did you decide to combine Burlesque with Lucha Libre wrestling?
Imperial- "That’s entertainment! Beautiful women and men in tights - could you ask for more??!"

HID- Will last year's champ be returning to defend his title this year?
Imperial- "Absolutely! The Mysterious Movado will be defending his title in a four corners battle for the belt!"

HID- Does ticket price include any food or drinks?
Imperial- "No. The ticket price gets you in the door for some seriously unbelievable entertainment. We have Burlesque Hall of Fame’s Queen of Burlesque AND Miss Exotic World, the stunning Roxi D’lite! Detroit's Hardest Working Showgirl Lushes Lamoan, Last years crowd favorite POLEformers the Benson Twins are back again this year! The wrestlers put on 5 bouts of spectacular wrestling. We will also be offering Imperial’s famous sonoran hot dogs as well as veggie and barbacoa burritos. It just wouldn’t be a party without some of Imperial’s signature cocktails… we will be serving the Ring of Fire, Detroit Tart, Imperial Margarita, Hotel California and a selection of canned beer. Oh, and don’t forget the luchadore masks!"

HID- Is the wrestling real?
Imperial- "Absolutely! 100 percent authentic Lucha Libre wresting. Championships on the line, people are betting the pink slips from their hot rods on these matches! It’s a throw down you have to see to believe. Champions will be made on this night!"

HID- How many tequila's will the tequila bar feature?
Imperial- "We will offering over 20 different kinds of Tequila! From to Locally owned favorites like Blue Nectar and Cabresto to a variety of Mezcal, Anjeo, and Reposado’s from all over the world."

HID- Will Imperial have any specials on Cinco De Mayo this year?
Imperial- "Yes! On May 5th the kitchen will be throwing down with our notorious tamales, we’ll offer drink specials, raffling off a bad ass custom lowrider bike and finishing up our lucadore mask sales. All proceeds from Luchadore masks and Lowrider raffle will go to benefit the Michigan Youth Arts Non Profit Organization."

HID- Is there anything else that you would like our readers to know?
