Lots of things to do the week ahead in San Juan Capistrano. You may say some of them seem rodeo-themed.
1. What’s better than cowboy music? Cowboy poetry, we say: Cowboy music and poetry with Rusty Richards starts at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Camino Real Playhouse. Cost is $20 per person at the door
2 They’ll be dancing, dancing in the park! The
third summer concert at Historic Town Center Park will be from 6-8 p.m.
Wednesday. The band is called The Trip and is described as classic rock. If you’re
over the age of 30, they may even take you on one.
3. We hear it has a nice bouquet: Tequila tasting at El Adobe is the place to be Thursday. For $20, you’ll get to sample 12 different brands of tequila, enjoy appetizers and listen to mariachi music. It’s all part of San Juan Capistrano Rodeo Week, and if you drink enough, you may work up the courage to partake in item No. 4.
4. Do people always tell you that you have good, eh-hem, assets? Now you can prove it! Also, in honor of Rodeo Week, the Swallows Inn will have a “best buns” contest. If you think you can compete, sign-ups start 8 p.m. Thursday. If you’re more of a spectator, the competition begins at 9 the same night.
5. And the big event itself: The Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo, Saturday and Sunday at the Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park at Ortega Highway and La Pata Avenue. Check out the website for all the details.
