Actor Charlie Sheen on Saturday tweeted a photo of himself with an arm around Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, touting the mayor’s visit to the grand opening of a new rooftop bar in Mexico that the celebrity hosted the night before.
‘From Boyle Heights 2 Mayor of LA..! .... Antonio Villaraigosa knows how to party!’ Sheen tweeted at 8:18 a.m. Saturday, showing a photo of the grinning actor in a tight-fitting button-up shirt, with his left arm slung around the mayor. Villaraigosa, flashing a toothy smile, was in a dark blazer with the top of his white shirt unbuttoned.
On Friday, Sheen promoted on Twitter the opening of Epic Bar on the rooftop of the four-story El Ganzo hotel in San Jose del Cabo, near Cabo San Lucas, on the southern tip of Baja California.
A flier on the hotel’s Twitter page said that Charlie Sheen was to present the bar’s grand opening with Slash, former lead guitarist of Guns N’ Roses, at 9 p.m. Friday. David Sanchez, a hotel concierge, confirmed that Sheen was at the hotel to host the event Friday night.
Sheen promoted the bar opening all day Friday. ‘Ready for EPIC..!’ he tweeted that night, just before the opening party. Earlier, he wrote, ‘Chilling @hotelelganzo and this place is amazing!! Can’t wait to launch the Club Epic tonight.... What a party!’
Peter Sanders, the mayor’s press secretary, confirmed that Villaraigosa was in Cabo and is scheduled to remain in Mexico until Jan. 2.The City Council’s president, Herb Wesson, is acting mayor until then. Sheen was fired last year from the hit show, ‘Two and a Half Men,’ after Sheen became critical of the show’s co-creator, Warner Bros., and CBS. He now stars in the FX comedy ‘Anger Management.’
Villaraigosa, who is term-limited, is in his final year as mayor of Los Angeles. The two-term mayor leaves office on June 30.
