Thats not to say theres not plenty of good will its just that theres hardly a holiday stereotype in sight. This years East End Christmas will be welcoming Pancho Claus (a.k.a. Richard Reyes), a zoot suit--wearing version of the jolly holiday staple for more than two decades. Hell roll into the show with his lowrider posse think a line of tricked-out, bouncing cars and perform live music. Check out the art, have some authentic Mexican snacks and dont forget to bring a new, unwrapped gift for the kids Pancho Claus will visit in the barrios on Christmas morning. 7 to 10 p. m. 2402 Munger.
