Miley Cyrus

Fresh from a controversial performance in Monterrey, where she was fined for disrespecting the Mexican flag,  U.S. pop singer Miley Cyrus entertained – and shocked – a large audience September 21 at the Auditorio Telmex in Guadalajara. At one point, the 21-year-old stunned fans by wearing a rubber male private part on her face.

All about chocolate

Lovers of chocolate should make a beeline for the Casa Museo Lopez Portillo (furniture museum), where a new exhibit on the history of this essentially Mexican culinary delight opened this week. Items on show include both Mexican and U.S. memorabilia associated with chocolate, as well as various historical brands and related items. Nine movies covering the theme will be shown, one each Saturday, 5 p.m.,  during the exposition. A children’s program will offer a chocolate workshop called Letters of Chocolate, where they will learn about the history of cacao and how to make chocolate. Two conferences on October 23 and November 20, both at 8 p.m.,  focus on “Chocolate in Literature” and “Chocolate: the Taste of Desire.” An altar to the departed in honor of the ladies who made chocolate at Chocolates Vivanco, founded in 1928, will be presented November 1.

The Casa Museo Lopez is in the Centro Historico, Liceo 177, two blocks from the Museo Regional. Open Tuesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
