        "E's List" is a FREE email listing of upcoming Latin/Caribbean
        events in the Central TX area and around the world.

        *THE LATEST FROM "E"
        *AUSTIN
        *SAN ANTONIO AREA
        *HOUSTON AREA
        *DALLAS METROPLEX

        ========================================================================================================

        Hello and Welcome to this week's edition of "E's List"! Thanks
        to the word-of-mouth press from you, the readers, "E's List"
        has grown to be a trusted source for the latest happenings of
        a Latin/Caribbean "flavor".

        Much has happened both locally and abroad of particular
        relevance to the "E's List" readership during our brief July
        hiatus: the passing of two charismatic Cuban performers, the
        prosecution of the first Hispanic elected statewide to a
        nonjudicial office for mail and income tax fraud, multiple
        Central Texans nominated for Latin Grammy Awards, and much
        more. I will try to issue a July recap (including many of
        your email notices) in a separate issue.

        I would like to send a special "hello" and "thank you" to new
        subscribers to "E's List"! If you find it worthwhile, please
        feel free to pass it on to your friends and encourage them to
        sign up too! I'm always in need of information on or reviews
        of Latin/Caribbean events in your area, so please drop me a
        line if you are so inclined. Suggestions for improvements
        are also welcome and may be sent to emlee@... .
        As always, I apologize in advance for any omissions or
        mistakes you may find as you peruse today's newsletter.

            The ability to reach a diverse audience by pointing out society's
            hypocrisies is the ultimate goal for the observational comedian
            Carlos Mencia. Mencia has been seen on "The Tonight Show," HBO's
            "Loco Slam," and 2 solo "Comedy Half Hours" on HBO as well. Carlos'
            quick, spontaneous, and smart no-holds-barred comedy act has been
            at times labeled controversial with good reason, for nobody is left
            out of his show. Carlos Mencia speaks the truth and the truth will
            make you laugh. For more info., call 972-404-8501.
