HOW DO WE GET OUR WINNERS?

GUEST COLUMN ERIN STROUD PFIRMAN WHAT’S UP MARKETING MANAGER comment: @whatsupweekly

T

his marks the 14th annual Best of the Best and just as things do, it’s changing with the times. From a paper ballot to improved iterations of a digital ballot, the one thing that was always the same was our annual voting party, the Dig. It set us apart from other best-of projects and parties. My favorite part was the variety of people who attended. Before working at What’s Up, I attended my first Dig at the Holiday Inn Airport to support a former employer. Parking was insane, but it was only $5 and there was free food and alcohol. It was a huge party and at some point, people ended up in the pool. It was crazy! Since it was the only time and place to vote, the Dig gave competitors an opportunity to campaign. It also enabled voters to meet and mingle with individuals and businesses representing our diverse community. But you can’t stop progress and this year we took a major step forward. It was a difficult decision, but it was time to let the Dig go – fly little bird, fly. We finally decided to move all the voting to a digital format and have been able to open up participation to a much larger and broader local audience. The result is a better vote. Still, we have kept what we feel is the most important component of the competition: One vote per person in each category. That’s fair, right? As always, people try to cheat the system. Different logins. Different emails. This year was the first time I heard of a disposable inbox, which gives users multiple temporary email addresses. Those extra emails come in handy when you’re trying to stuff a ballot. We appreciate the extra effort some users took to fill out multiple ballots, but they were disqualified. The thing we love about our contest is that it’s locals voting for their favorite people, places and things. When I’m jonesing for brunch on a Sunday morning and don’t know where to go, I head to What’s Up’s Best of the Best page on my phone. It’s not just to review the winners – the Top 10 list is loaded with great options. Or maybe I want to see what my community thinks is the best Happy Hour and Veggie-Friendly Restaurant. We even have categories for Kids Birthday Spot, Doctor and Pet Care. That’s why we do this. We’re not trying to find out who can get everyone they know, all around the country, to vote for them every day for a month. What does that really determine? No. We really want to know what the community thinks is the best. And that’s why we scrub bogus and duplicate accounts and out of town ballots. What’s Up’s Best of the Best is a resource. It’s a coming together of the community. It’s a celebration of what people love about El Paso. So even though the Dig is gone, we’re still here celebrating what we love about El Paso. Congratulations to this year’s Local Legends and now get ready for Part 2: Party & Play. Nominations for those categories open April 28. Visit whatsuppub.com.

1. Nominate

What’s Up’s Best of the Best is a reader’s choice contest to name and celebrate El Paso’s favorite people and places. The categories are grouped into four parts scheduled throughout the year.

The Best of the Best is a great community resource for locals and visitors. From finding a personal trainer to help you stay in shape to knowing who can give you a good laugh or meal, consider this list a local guide for the mind, body and soul. Thank you to our readers who took the time to vote and congratulations to the winners. Save the date for Best of the Best Part 2: Party & Play. Nominations open April 28.

Best Brewmaster Gabe Montoya (DeadBeach Brewery) Gabe Montoya is an OG to the El Paso beer scene. Although DeadBeach Brewery opened less than two years ago, he’s been brewing on a large scale for about 10 years. He got his start at Jaxon’s Restaurant & Brewing Company brewing for seven years. When it closed down in 2012, he and fellow brewer Justin Ordoñez thought to open up their own brewery. Fast forward to today and that dream has proved that Montoya isn’t just a guy with a couple of recipes and tricks up his sleeve, but a man with vision – vision to realize that a love of El Paso means making it known beyond the city limits. One of El Paso’s few breweries, Deadbeach has reached out all the way to San Antonio via Hoppy Monk. They’re the first to sign on with a distributor (Ben E. Keith) to get their beer farther out into Texas. “I compare us to Odell, Adelbert’s in Austin and St. Arnold’s in Houston,” Montoya said of Deadbeach. “We keep ourselves at such a high mark, because that’s what we deserve.” He said the beers he brews are an homage to the city he loves. “Made for El Paso, by El Paso.” DeadBeach Brewery, 406 Durango St, El Paso, TX 79901, 855-915-2337, DeadBeach.com Runner-up: Albert Salinas, Ode Brewing – 53233 N. Mesa St., 915-351-4377

he’s been at the restaurant nearly every morning and night, perfecting Catteman’s steaks and taking pride in his team’s work. “We run so many tests on everything and we buy meat from the packer directly so that we get specific sizes of everything that we want,” Sanchez said. “We age our own meat, which takes a long time, and it takes a lot of planning.” If you want steak tips, don’t even try getting any of Cattleman’s recipes; those are top secret. “We have 150 employees, but probably only four or five people know the recipes,” Sanchez said. “They sign paperwork where you can’t disclose recipes.” Cattleman’s Steakhouse, 3450 S Fabens Carlsbad Rd, Fabens, TX, 915-544-3200

Cheers to brothers Matt and Joe Poe of Blackbird Cantina Deluxe!

Best Bartender Poe Brothers

(Blackbird Cantina Deluxe) This is the second year in a row twin brothers Matt and Joe Poe won the title Best Bartender. Now they each have an award they can hang next to their trademark Depression-era hats! The second and third most famous Poes in El Paso (R.I.P. to the homie Dick), they both got into bartending through other passions: skateboarding and punk rock. Making connections through those communities, it was Matt who initially took to bar backing and brought Joe on as a member of the Lowbrow Palace team. Now at Blackbird Cantina Deluxe – last year’s winner for Best Tasting Mixed Drinks – these self-taught brothers not only have signature looks, but signature cocktails. Ask for the Steve McQueen and you’ll be drinking a bit of all of

Matt’s favorite things in a single drink – chocolate and bourbon. Truly friendly and courteous guys, there isn’t a ZZ Top joke they haven’t heard, so save yourself the embarrassment. Blackbird Cantina Deluxe, 533 W Franklin Ave, El Paso, TX 79901, facebook.com/BlackbirdCantina. Runner-up: Taylor Aikman, King’s X – 4119 N Mesa St., 915-544-4795, TheKingsX.com

Best Chef Ben Sanchez (Cattleman’s Steakhouse) Since he was a kid, Ben Sanchez had a passion for cooking. “I just basically fell in love with the kitchen,” Sanchez said. He’s been at Cattleman’s Steakhouse since 1987 and took charge of the kitchen in ’91. Since then,

Best Chiropractor Dr. Ben Leyva (My Life Chiropractic) Dr. Ben Leyva is a living testament to the power of chiropractic. He knows firsthand how much the practice can transform patients’ lives, because it helped him avoid surgery after a basketball injury in college. Since then, he’s made it his mission to help others going through similar tribulations. Leyva says his upbringing inspired him to help his community. “I was born in Segundo Barrio in 1984 in not such good socioeconomic conditions, and people in the community have always been there for me to give me advice, to guide me, to show me how to be

Dr. Ben Leyva

a good person to others,” Leyva said. “I feel a deep sense of commitment to try and give back to others.” His website outlines what patients can expect from their initial visits as they embark on a journey to improve their physical well-being. Still feeling uneasy about chiropractic? Just skim through Dr. Leyva’s reviews for further proof of the high-quality care you can expect. “Hands down the best staff and chiropractic care I have received,” wrote patient Syvannah Ramirez. The care she received also helped prevent the need for surgery. “I don’t have any more back pain. I feel normal again. Seeing Dr. Leyva has been the best decision I could have made for my health.” 1393 George Dieter Ste. E, 915-228-4915, MyLifeChiroPracticElPaso.com.

Best Elected Official U.S. Rep Beto O’Rourke Congressman Robert “Beto” O’Rourke might just be the Borderland’s No. 1 fan. “You have helped me make the case to the country, that the reason we are the safest city in Texas, the safest city in the United States, is not in spite of but because of the fact that we are a city of immigrants,” O’Rourke said to a crowd when he recently announced his run for U.S. Senate. “Thanks to you, I think we have distinguished ourselves here in El Paso.” Fondly referred to by all simply as Beto, this social media savvy official made national headlines lately with his live streamed bipartisan car trip from Austin to Washington D.C. with fellow Texas Congressman John Hurd, showing that Texans do stick together, and it’s possible to get along. “Beto is the same person that he’s always been ever since I’ve known him [in high school],” said a longtime friend. “He’s always been someone with very strong convictions, but at the same time, witty, charming and very intelligent. His approachability and his energy are all sort of contagious and that makes him appealing to a younger generation of voters.” He’s also known for listening to his constituents at his town halls and through his offices. Give him a call at 915-541-1400 or visit orourke.house.gov! Runner-up: Mayor Oscar Leeser – 915-212-0000, elpasotexas.gov/mayor

Barajas played double-A baseball for the Diablos in 1999 when they were affiliated with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The former big league catcher played with seven Major League teams in his 14-year professional career. “Being that my last year was 2012, I felt like I understood the players a little better and the interaction between us seemed to go really smoothly,” he said. Barajas led the Chihuahuas to the Pacific Southern division title. El Paso then knocked off Tacoma three games to one in the semifinals before downing Oklahoma City, again by three games to one, to win their first PCL title. But Barajas gives the people of El Paso an assist. “The fans of El Paso are the best in the league. They really give us the extra energy to go out and perform every single game.” facebook.com/epchihuahuas, Twitter: @epchihuahuas

Best Club DJ Johnny Kage (The Rooftop) DJ Johnny Kage has a lot of good things happening in life these days. Aside from DJing at west El Paso’s Rooftop Sky Garden & Grill, he’s also co-owner of the venue. Opening a second location is currently in the works. When asked what he likes most about

DJing, he said “I like to bring different music from different cultures to the table.” Playing a variety that includes dance and house hits, Kage is well-known for playing what he refers to as ‘Juarez classics.’ This includes hit songs from Mexican rock bands like Maná and Molotov. Kage, who’s been DJing for 24-years, began his career as a teenager. He earned his first gig at the memorable Juarez nightclub, Vertigo Discoteque. Who can forget those crazy drink-and-drown nights with good music to go along with them?

Best Coach Rod Barajas (El Paso Chihuahuas) A former El Paso Diablos player, Rod Barajas returned to the Sun City as a manager in 2016 and guided the El Paso Chihuahuas to the Pacific Coast League championship in his first season. “It’s a huge honor. Anytime you’re recognized by the fans it’s something really special,” Barajas said of his Best Coach title. “My goal here is not just to develop baseball players, but to develop strong young men.”

Best Event Promoter SMG Events

SMG Events has received the crowned glory in one of our newest categories, Best Event Promoter. Responsible for bringing in acts like 21 Savage, The Chainsmokers and Skrillex, this two decade-old promoting powerhouse was practically a shoo in. While the group primarily focuses on electronic and hip-hop, they are the masterminds behind ultra-popular events like Sun City Music Festival, which along with music highlights other art forms. What makes a group like SMG so successful? In the words of marketing director Felipe Quezada, “Team work makes the dream work.” In a masterstroke of promoting expertise, SMG works hard to bring in not only Top 40 artists, but to discover fresh blood among more underground acts as well. They also share the love with cities like Albuquerque and Juarez.

fered, including sessions that incorporate visual art, movement and play. Some feelings really can’t be expressed through words, and Miller understands that. “It’s about creating something so that you can see what’s going on internally,” Miller said. One of the center’s most popular services is the child-parent relationship training. “Children don’t come with recipes or instruction books, and a lot of times, there’s such big pressures on parents,” Miller said. “To help a parent build a solid relationship with the child – it’s really sacred to watch.” Counseling Center of Expressive Arts, 1600 Medical Center, Suite B-1, 915-845-3122, ccoea.com Runner-up: Dr. Elizabeth L.

Best Dentist/Dental Office Dr. Larson (EP Dentistry 4 Kids) Dr. Cameron Larson is behind some of the city’s most sparkling smiles. This dental dynamo is the managing dentist at the Zaragoza location of E.P. Dentistry 4 Kids . Beyond his exceptional manual dexterity and ability to maneuver in tiny mouths, Dr. Larson has a talent for easing his patients’ anxiety, going to great lengths to make them feel comfortable. A valuable implement in his tools of the trade is compassion for his patients. “I’m able to get down on their level, make them feel comfortable and let them know I’m here to help them,” Larson said. The call to dentistry came through Dr. Larson’s own dental experience. He credits his doctor with both helping to correct a crooked smile and inspiring him to do the same for other kids when he grew up. E.P. Dentistry 4 Kids, 1502 N.

Patients, parents and nurses will tell you that Dr. Roberto Canales lives and breathes his work. He’s a pediatrician, specializing in hematology and oncology, and he’s elevated patient care to an art form in his nearly 40 years of practicing. Comments from patients and parents include calling him an “angel” and “godsend.” One area mom whose sons are now grown recounted that Dr. Canales once spent an entire evening at her son’s bedside when he was whisked to the intensive care unit after birth. “I walked in and the nurse told me he’d been there all night,” she said. Heartfelt care and genuine compassion are the hallmarks of the standards Dr. Canales sets.

cations is that the same vibe of fun and comfort permeates all three. That’s from the care in delivering friendly service and – most importantly – pizza that keeps customers coming back for more. It’s a formula that owner Mel Maese has come to trust. “I believe that if we treat our guests as individuals and give them the genuine Pizza Joint experience, then the success will follow,” Maese said. “I approach the daily grind with believing in my team, supporting them, encouraging them and recognizing that I need them as they need me. “I’m a self taught restaurateur and still learning to do what I do, but continuously working to make it better, and believe I can.” Her passion stems from the gratitude she has towards her community. “I have been able to be creative, to come up with an idea and it become something way bigger than me,” Maese said “Its surreal. From the tasty pizza, to an awesome weekly open mic – I felt that The Pizza Joint was something this city needed. I really believed that, and I proved it.” El Paso believes in you too, Mel.

to projects marries artistic expression and functionality. “What I like about El Paso is the approach the city has taken for quality of life improvements – to include Downtown redevelopment and urban development growth,” said Edward E. McCormick, principal. “Architecture is a form of expression that should emerge around the users’ daily needs without disruption of their usual routine. As architects, it is our responsibility to generate a structure that will harvest these feelings when admired publicly. McCormick Architecture creates timelessness and reflects upon culture, environment, location and climate.” McCormick Architecture, 550 S.

Perez suggests checking out Chuco Relic, an El Paso souvenir store with unique gifts, and the Lee and Beulah Moor Children’s Home if you want to give back to the community. For local art, the graffiti murals on Third Street and Cotton Street in South Central El Paso are a must-see.

These ain’t no jive turkeys! After all, this is the third straight Best Local Cover Band win for the bell bottom, platform wearing quintet. Altogether, it’s their seventh time winning one of our categories, the first one being “Best Local Band” in 2005. Describing themselves as “the world’s sexiest band,” Fungi Mungle has been rocking the stage at several local festivals and events since 1996. If you’re able to catch one of their shows, expect them to play lots of popular ’70s dance tunes. “Fungi Mungle is a testament to consistency,” Lead singer Joey Mungle said. “By providing a quality performance, people know what to expect.

Best Local Hero Khalid

With his suave, old-soul voice, 19-yearold Khalid has been garnering the attention of outlets like Rolling Stone, New York Times and The Ellen DeGeneres Show this year. As he has ascended on his musical journey, he has not failed to mention his love for EP. The city’s reciprocated love is evident in his recent sold-out show at Tricky Falls and in the votes for him as this year’s Best Local Hero. “I feel super honored that even this award is part of a city that I’m not primarily from, accepting me as an individual and as an artist,” said Khalid, who moved to El Paso just before his senior year and attended Americas High School. “Everything I do, I really try to do for not only me, but for the city – whether it’s innovation, whether it’s creativeness – anything. So, I’m super happy, very thankful and appreciative.” A nod to old school R&B infused with slick production, the former army brat’s music has racked up over 30 million lis-

Best Local Original Band Radio la Chusma

The music of Radio La Chusma celebrates life, our city and our culture in the ways that truly make America great – and the Best Original Band winner for the sixth time to boot. “We can’t believe it. It’s just great to be recognized by the city,” trombonist Marco Guerrero said. “It’s an honor to be playing in the group for this long.” Their blend of genres showcases how comfortably a reggae skank can rest within the pocket of a cumbia beat. Wrap it all up in an attitude towards performance that has punk’s neversay-die spirit with rhythms that make you dance and lyrics that make you think. The group, which has been around since the ’90s with several transformations, is currently working on their latest album, set to be released this summer. facebook.com/RadioLaChusma

PRESENTED BY

When the team first decided on the name Chihuahuas, it was greeted with a mixed bag of emotions at best. But not only has the name played a role in the team’s popularity – its mascot has quickly become a source of fun and optimism and is now one of the most recognizable figures in the area. “Chico has become a real staple, not just in the El Paso community but throughout the entire region,” said Angela Olivas, Chihuahuas’ director of marketing and communications. “He’s averaging over 500 appearances a year and in mascot terms, that’s simply incredible.” Chico is so popular he even has his own club. Youngsters can join Chico’s Kids Club and receive all kinds of goodies and specials on events with the loveable pooch. But don’t think for a second that Chico is a pushover. He has the unique qualities of being both a menacing

tough guy opposing teams wouldn’t want to tangle with and a huggable softy any 6-year-old would love to squeeze. “The kids just love him,” Olivas added. “He is fun and outgoing and he exemplifies what the Chihuahuas’ brand is, which is family and fun.” facebook.com/ epchihuahuas, Twitter: @epchihuahuas Runner-up: Chik-fil-a Cow – chick-fil-a. com

Best Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Jacob Heydemann

Throughout the several decades that Dr. Jacob Heydemann has been a practicing orthopedic surgeon, he has built a strong reputation among his patients and their families. This Texas Tech School of Medicine grad has held leadership positions at several Sun City hospitals, including a time as chief of staff at Providence Memorial Hospital. “I have been a patient of Dr. Heydemann’s for over 30 years,” patient Monie Guel said of Dr. Heydemann. “His professionalism is unequalled as a doctor. What has impressed me the most is how he has treated me as a person, not just a number. “I have had issues that are not minor. His patience, his understanding and his compassion has given me the assurance that no matter what the problem, I will definitely be well cared for.” Dr. Heydemann is also known for his lifelong and selfless commitment to the community. He has been voluntarily providing free orthopedic surgery services to children in Ciudad Juarez through the non-profit FEMAP since 1986. Along with his own medical practice, Dr. Heydemann is a professor at Texas Tech School of Medicine, UTEP and EPCC, training the borderland’s future generations of medical profes-

The list of his goodwill includes a $50 million donation for the Texas Tech medical school and $2 million to the El Paso Zoo, to name a few. “I can’t say enough about Paul Foster,” said Renee Neuert, executive director of the El Paso Zoological Society. “He’s been on trips to Africa, and he understands the problems facing endangered species.

Best Power Couple Johnny Kage and DJ Javi (104.3 HIT FM Morning Mash)

Dynamic duo DJ Javi and Johnny Kage, hosts of Hit FM’s Morning Mash, are the takers in What’s Up’s new Best Power Couple category. The pair has cultivated an on-and-off-air friendship that goes back more than 20 years, and that shines through as they banter back and forth every weekday morning from 6-10. To get you through your morning coma, Kage and Javi dish on subjects like government cheese and Christmas Eve drive-bys, just to name a couple. They’re both from the area, a privilege that has allowed them to understand and explore the nuances of what it means to be an El Pasoan and connect with so many listeners. The premise of their show is a refreshing departure from the politics, gloom and doom typical of many outlets. Their approach is lighter and often downright cringe-worthy. “Why sugarcoat it? Let’s say what people really want to say but are afraid to,” Kage said. “The Morning Mash,” Hit FM 104.3, Monday-Friday, 6-10 a.m., HitFMradio.com/ programs/morningmash Runner-up: Papa Joe and Mama Judy – TheMetalShopVlogs.weebly.com, facebook.com/themetalshopvlogs

Best Sports Team El Paso Chihuahuas

In their first two years of existence, the El Paso Chihuahuas made a national name for themselves with clever marketing campaigns, a fan-friendly mascot and a shiny new state-of-the-art baseball park. In their third year, the Chihuahuas did most of their barking on the field by claiming the Pacific Coast League championship. “We certainly enjoy a home field advantage because we’re so well supported,” said Brad Taylor, Chihuahuas’ vice president and general manager. “The fans should take a lot of pride in knowing they helped bring this title home. It means a lot that people embrace us as they have.” And El Pasoans have embraced the team in droves with over 1.7 million fans making their way through the turnstiles, ranking the team in the top four in attendance every year. “Winning the championship is what we call the cherry on the sundae,” Taylor said. “But it’s a great experience, in a great building, treated well by our courteous staff, that we hope will keep fans coming for years.” facebook.com/epchihuahuas, Twitter: @epchihuahuas Runner-up: Sun City Roller Girls – SunCityRollerGirls.com

Best Stage Performer Bettie Mae Wiggle (Burlesque on the Rio)

For performer and costumer Betti Mae Wiggle, burlesque has allowed her the freedom to go all out.

“I’ve done historic costuming for years, which is really structured. You can’t put rhinestones on anything,” Wiggle said. “It’s so much fun to be able to get outside of the norms of costuming, to just go crazy.” And go crazy she does. From riding a rocking chair shaped like a motor cycle to splashing in a bathtub filled with fake blood a la Elizabeth Báthory, Wiggle instantly captivates her audiences. “Probably the one people like the most is my Betti in the Box,” said Wiggle, referring to an act in which she busts out of a larger-than-life box. “Everyone loves that act because it’s a little dark, but it’s also super funny, and I have springy pasties.” She teams up with her husband, Mr. Wiggle, who constructs her props and apparatuses. He found the task so fun that he and a friend formed a production group called Burlesque Builders. Wiggle is a part of Burlesque on the Rio, a collective with members who range from age 27 to 69. At 44, she inspires viewers to embrace their sexier side. “Once you can be mostly naked on stage, you can pretty much do anything.” Catch Burlesque on the Rio’s upcoming show, Panties & Pasties, on May 20. facebook.com/BurlesqueOnTheRio, BurlesqueOnTheRio.weebly.com, facebook.com/BettiMaeWiggle Runner-up: Austin Savage, Border Theatre – bordertheatre.org

“Art is like my life force. When I am freely creating it, my spirit soars, I feel connected to all things including my true self. It allows me to heal, to love, to express my innermost feelings.” These are the words said by Francella Salgado, the tattoo artist-painter-entrepreneur who was voted Best Artist by our readers. Salgado has received awards in different categories at national tattoo conventions, including three best in show titles. Her tattoo work, murals and paintings surround themes that are ethereal, symbols of strength and a nod to horror classics. Whether it is operating out of her home base at Dreadful Things or taking her talents to the road, Salgado’s distinct taste and undeniable talent reflect not only on herself but on her community as well. “I have a huge sense of gratitude to the community for their support in my work and I am happy to be a small representation of the El Paso art community,” Salgado said. “Art can be vulnerable and being vulnerable to the public can otherwise be difficult.” Her journey to reflect and share her vulnerabilities is far from over, Salgado said. “You can’t be stuck and comfortable in the same place in life and expect change.

KAPPY’S CORNER By Steve Kaplowitz / Comment: @whatsupweekly

The El Paso Chihuahuas have won three of their first five games in defense of their Pacific Coast League championship. Although the team is filled with new players for the 2017 season, it is their pitching that has stood out early against the Las Vegas 51s. Through the first five games, the Chihuahuas’ starting pitchers have surrendered just two earned runs in 28 1/3 innings. Tyrell Jenkins, Dinelson Lamet and Bryan Rodriguez pitched shutout baseball in their starts and the bullpen has taken care of business. Matt Magill and Walter Lockett have given up just one run in their six innings of work and pitching coach Bronswell Patrick has to be thrilled with his rotation early on. Don’t get too excited, the Chihuahuas still have 137 games left to play this season, but in three years at Southwest University Park, El Paso baseball fans have never been treated to excellent pitching like this in an opening series. Offensively, the Chihuahuas have pounded the baseball thanks to three home runs from veteran Jamie Romak and two bombs each from Collin Cowgill and Franchy Cordero. The team has scored 24 times in four games and the mixture of veterans with young prospects give manager Rod Barajas the perfect bal-

ance of Triple-A talent. *** The UTEP women’s basketball head coaching search is still ongoing and one major surprise is that associate coach Ewa Laskowska opted to stay with Keitha Adams and take a similar position at Wichita State rather than pursue the job opening in El Paso. In 16 years with the Miners, Laskowksa could have given the program a smooth transition despite Adams leaving for Wichita and kept the majority of the young talent in place. It also would have been the first Division 1 head coaching opportunity for the native of Stalowa Wola, Poland, who played for Coach Adams and later joined her staff and became her most trusted assistant.

“Now knowing that Ewa is going to go with Keitha, there will be more people (applying for the UTEP job) because a lot of people anticipated that she would stay here and be the coach,” Director of Athletics Bob Stull said late last week. “We have great facilities, we pay really well, we have great fan support, and everybody knows that. We’ll have a lot of really good quality candidates. What happens in coaching searches for football and basketball is that you get a huge rush. People know in advance when something is happening.” With Laskowska leaving the Miners, Stull anticipates even more candidates to apply for the UTEP job. “We’ll probably get another huge rush (of applicants). What I’ll do then is separate into a group

Q:

Dear Mexican: Okay, sour cream! Growing up in a Mexican family, my mom never ever used sour cream on the food she cooked. Now when she comes to visit me, I take her to Mexican restaurants here in the Dallas area. Almost every time she orders an entrée, she always asks me why they put sour cream as a side item. Is it me, or is it a gabacho thing with the “got to have sour cream thing on my Tex-Mex food.” Am I too old-fashion, too old-school? – I’ll Love Tony Romo Forever Dear Pocha: Your mom might not use sour cream, but si es old-school, I guarantee you that she uses crema fresca, or crema salada, or even jocoque if she’s from from Jalisco. Those are the Mexican versions of sour cream—in other words, a dairy product that enlivens dishes with a tart milkiness. When Mexicans came to the United States in the early 1900s and started making Mexican food, the substitute for crema was sour cream because there was none in los Estados Unidos at the time due to a lack of concentration of Mexicans. It’s the same reason why Tex-Mex food uses cheddar cheese and that pointless cabbage salad on the side of a combo plate—you make due with what you tienes. I don’t have a problem with it, but real Mexicans like you do because ustedes can’t comprehend that mestizaje is a twoway calle that makes our culture thrive. Man, y’all must also be mad at Mexicans in the U.S. for learning English instead of staying monolingual in Spanish—good luck with that!

Q:

I’m a gay gabacho who has been in a relationship with a Mexican for seven years. His family knows about us and they love me. They treat me almost like a celeb whenever they come to Dallas and visit or when we go to Mexico. At first, they didn’t like me for the simple

reason they didn’t trust white people. Once they got to know me, that was all over with. His mother is the family matriarch and treats me as if I am one of her own children. So, whenever we get around them or his friends in Mexico, he acts like I

am not even there. I actually spend more time with everyone else (between my broken Spanish and their broken English, we communicate rather well). Is his distance from me caused by the fact that I am white, or that we are in a gay relationship? I ask only because his friends and family don’t have a problem with it, so this stumps me. – Gaybacho Dear Gaybacho: I can’t answer this question fully as a cishet cabr*n, but I can offer this: Mexican families don’t take kindly to their kids being grabby-grabby with their significant others in front of them, because no child of any

CALENDAR APRIL 12-19, 2017

Mexican parents have ever had sex in their lives. Your papi chulo obviously likes you—otherwise, you’d never have met the family in the first place—but he might be taking the commandment I just shared with you a bit too seriously. Check in with him, and see what’s up. And if it doesn’t work out? Get one of his male relatives. As I’ve said before in this column, what’s the difference between a straight hombre and a gay one? Three beers. Ask the Mexican at themexican@ askamexican.net, be his fan on Facebook, follow him on Twitter @ gustavoarellano or follow him on Instagram @gustavo_arellano!
