The Annual Cabo Pimp N’ Ho®

The Annual Cabo Pimp N’ Ho® —
A wild and fun Los Cabos (Mexico) 15-year tradition.

The Cabo Pimp N’ Ho is a celebrated social and costume party, an event for adults to be uninhibited and their a chance to be a part of the Cabo’s most happening, wildest, craziest and most anticipated social event of the year. Event-goers have the pleasure of being in the company of the world’s most “now” jetsetters; including the infamous, notorious and even the famous!

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (September 26, 2013) — 15th Annual Cabo Pimp N’ Ho is a costume ball, for everyone who loves to go crazy, be outrageous once a year, and to simply let it all out. This Cabo costume ball expects everyone to leave their identities at home and put on their costumes in the blusteriest way possible.

Started in 1998, by Brian Balsley, owner of a local Cabo pizzeria and one of his employees, the inkling of throwing the first ever Pimp N’ Ho party derived mostly from boredom. Within three days, the party was organized and attracted three hundred guests. Looking at the overwhelming retort, Basley began considering the future potential of the Pimp N’ Ho event concept. Since then through last year, the Cabo Pimp N’ Ho event has only grown bigger and better, with attendances well over 1,000 guests at each event.

Throughout the years, the Annual Cabo Pimp N’ Ho Costume Ball has been attended by party lovers, jetsetters and Cabo’s uber wealthy snowbirds, many of which own sprawling multi-million dollar villas along Cabo’s majestic Sea of Cortez and Pacific Ocean coastlines. But the attendees who have sparked the event’s largest publicity are the VIPs who have witnessed and partaken in the naughtiness; celebrities including Sean Combs (aka P. Diddy), film producer Peter Safran, professional boxer Floyd Mayweather, baseball superstar Pat Burrell, motocross icon Carey Hart, professional wrestling valet SoCal Val, MTV’s Mark Long, Dennis Hoff and the Bunny Ranch girls, burlesque dj Portia Surreal and a long list of Playboy Playmates and models too long to list, including Jayde Nicole, Hiromi Oshima, Ciara Price, Amanda Cerny, Shannon James, Christy Hemme, and Leticia Cline.

Each year, the event moves to a different venue; this year’s 15th Annual Cabo Pimp N’ Ho® Costume Ball will be held at Baja Junkie UltraBar in Cabo San Lucas on the 26th of October, 2013. Few reasons to attend this year’s Costume Ball include:

Upbeat crazy ambience
Premium open bar (yes, premium drinks are included)
Costume contest (best “Ho” costumes will win $1,000)
Celebrity presence
Exclusive and 2 women to every man
Only 200 Men Tickets will be sold at $150 each
400 Women Tickets will be sold, at only $50 each

“The Cabo Pimp N’ Ho is by far, the best annual party in Los Cabos, with outrageous people wearing outrageous costumes, outrageous shows and the greatest hangovers of the year. I love it!” Says David Flores, the Editor of Los Cabos’ famed Gringo Gazette newspaper .

Professional model Crissty Santana says “[The Cabo Pimp N’ Ho] is a chance that all of us get, once a year, to let our wild, sexy and free spirts out.

The Annual Cabo Pimp N’ Ho® Costume Ball is currently promoted and produced by Basley and, for the past seven years, Derrick Grahn and wife and business partner, Anastasia Grahn. Derrick is a 20-year plus nightlife promoting vetran from Chicago  who, with Anastasia, moved to Los Cabos and over the last decade played significant roles in shaping and reframing Cabo’s nightlife and celebrity scenes, into the versions which Cabo is currently most known for.

In regards to this year’s event, Derrick Grahn says “One of my favorite parts is how we will transform Baja Junkie for one night, by installing a massive curtain across the nightclub’s open-air facade, creating privacy for all of our party-goers, celebrities and VIP’s. That and the exclusiveness and boutique-ness of this year’s event; normally about 1,200 to 1,500 people come out for the Pimp N’ Ho. But this year, due to the boutique size of Baja Junkie, we’re selling only 600 tickets; 400 to ladies and just 200 to guys!”

Brian Balsley, Cabo’s Pimp N’ Ho® Founder, wraps it up by saying “I can’t believe this will be the 15th annual Pimp N’ Ho Costume Ball. Seems like yesterday we had the first party. Back then, Cabo had no Internet, no cellphones, no digital photos, no Facebook and nobody even liked DJ’s! Wow how times have changed. It’s been a pleasure working with all the different venues in Cabo, especially this year at Baja Junkie. For the last 15 years, what makes this event as successful as it is, is not all the celebrities and rock stars that appear. The event is awesome because of all of the regular people that attend; from all around the world, arriving in unbelievable costumes. The event is just a great night of eyecandy and loads of fun for everyone.”

The official date for this event has been announced. The Annual Cabo Pimp N’ Ho® will take place on October 26th, 2013. As event dates and details are subject to sudden change and cancellation, please confirm dates and times with the event organizer before booking your trip.
