How to know what’s going on in Mazatlán

February 27, 2014

Wherever you live you want to know what’s going on in your community, don’t you?  We have a lot of great resources here in Mazatlán to keep us in the know, but for me, Facebook beats all.  Many people scorn Facebook but it really is an excellent source of information.  At the top of this post is a screen grab of the Antonio Haas theater’s sharing of Camino al Teatro’s upcoming show.  We attended their fabulous performance of Hairspray the other night and I want to make sure that I don’t miss anything they do in the future… and liking their Facebook page is a great way to do that.

I thought I’d share some of my most essential Facebook pages with you here.  You don’t need to join Facebook and have friends and post pictures of what you had for breakfast to take advantage of the information offered here.  Just join and then “LIKE” or “FOLLOW” the pages to get their information on your news feed.  The links below are only a taste of what is available.  My links are pretty Centro oriented but you can search and find all your favorite places.  Since many businesses here don’t have a website, Facebook is where you can find out more about them. Have fun!

    1. A very useful and informational post! Thank you!

      1. Peter, You’re welcome, hope you find some pages you like.

        Kim, I know a lot of people resist FB but for me it is the only way to find out about some things – especially since lots of events and music etc happen here with short notice. Cultura is really consistent with putting their events on FB and all the smaller venues and restaurants use it for daily specials and that kind of thing. But I also love the social aspect – where someone posts pictures of an event, or says “going to Stone Island, who wants to join me” or something like that.

    1. Interesting. I have fairly firmly resisted joining Facebook for privacy reasons. In fact, it was something of a mental paradigm leap for me to start my blog. But you’ve now given me yet one more reason to consider joining FB.

      Where maybe, just maybe, we are getting a smidgen less paranoid, LOL.

    1. I agree with KIm. We never joined due to privacy reasons. So if one only likes or follows information pages does that mean we won’t be getting “invites’ to sign up with people?

      1. Contessa, You can control who can send you friend invitations. I just took a quick look at mine and you can say only “friends of friends” can send you invitations… and if you don’t have any friends then that means that no one can. I’m not trying to convince you to do it but I like it myself.
