Friends and supporters of Councilman Ed Reyes are throwing him a 50th birthday party tonight at Barragan’s Mexican restaurant in Echo Park. The event also happens to double as a fundraiser. A $5oo donation would be nice but $100 will do, according to an invite posted on Mayor Sam. RSVPs are being collected by Sandra Figueroa, head of the Echo Park social service group El Centro del Pueblo, which provides anti-gang services to the city.
Reyes would have saved his guests a lot of money if he had held his birthday bash yesterday during Margarita Wednesdays at Barragan’s. A $500 donation at the bar would have bought you 200 discounted Margaritas. Now that’s a birthday party.
