City Living - January 10, 2014

To mark its 30th anniversary, Intermoda, one of Latin America’s leading fashion trade shows, will be opening up its doors to the general public on its final day.

Intermoda runs at Expo Guadalajara form Tuesday, January 14 through Friday, January 17 and will feature more than 1,200 expositors from Mexico, the United States, Europe and Latin America.

Last year’s edition attracted 23,000 buyers from around the world. 

This year’s event will showcase 42 Mexican designers, who will show off their creations at different times on the expo’s main “runway.”

New Mexican fashion talent will be on display on Friday, when the gates will be thrown open to the public.

There will be no charge for entry.

Vegan food sale

Finding vegan food for sale in Guadalajara is more than challenging – it’s almost impossible. In such a meat-greedy society vegans are definitely in a tiny minority. 

But the city’s vegans are finally becoming organized and using social media to spread the word and network among themselves.

The Sabor Vegano México Facebook group now has 4,000 followers and been organizing “solidarity sales” and workshops in Guadalajara for some time.

Their next solidarity sale will be on Sunday, January 12, at Bogota 2818 in Colonia Providencia, between Yukon and Alberta.

There will be plenty of different vegan dishes on sale all day, the groups says.

A workshop on the preparation of vegan cheeses is planned for February.

Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, as well as following an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of sentient animals.

Nitro Circus Live

Nitro Circus Live is coming to Guadalajara on January 31.  

Nitro Circus showcases over 40 of the world’s best action sports athletes performing daring and often record-breaking tricks in freestyle motocross, BMX and skateboarding, along with heart-stopping stunts.  The show is headed up by Travis Pastrana, a ten-time X Games gold medalist in freestyle motocross who has also become a fixture on the NASCAR, Supercross and rally racing circuits. According to organizers, this choreographed action sports spectacular combines big stunts and outrageous feats on an array of contraptions launched off the famous 50-foot Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp. “Fans can expect to see everything from kids’ trikes, snow skis, tandem bikes and razor scooters to shopping carts, a Barbie car and even a cooler launched with skill off the Gigant-A-Ramp,” says Pastrana.

Nitro Circus Live takes place at the Arena VFG on the Guadalajara-Chapala highway on Friday, January 31, 8 p.m. Tickets 380 to 1,430 pesos.

Cemetery closed

Guadalajara city hall is making giant strides in turning the historic Belen cemetery, the oldest graveyard in the city, into a major tourist attraction.  The latest stage of restoration work is expected to be finished by April at a cost of eight million pesos. Meanwhile, the cemetery is closed to the public.

When completed, the Belen cemetery will feature museum-style information displays recounting its long history and famous residents.
