Sunday was the fourth annual Lucha Libre Taco-con in San Francisco. Foodies and wrestling lovers came together to watch men in bear costumes, Amish garb and luchador masks take each other down in the ring.
Lucha libre is the term used to describe Mexican professional wrestling, which features fighters -- or luchadores -- competing in colorful costumes and masks.
No punches actually landed on Sunday, and most fights were of the verbal kind, but that didn't stop the audience from getting invested. At one point the sold-out crowd launched into a chant of, "This is real! This is real!"
Ten different fighters, including luchadores from Mexico and El Salvador, faced off while onlookers enjoyed Mexican, Peruvian, Salvadoran and Filipino tacos at the outdoor StrEat Food Park in San Francisco's SoMa District.
"We are an escape and times like these we need an escape," says event host Caesar Black. "This is cheaper than therapy. We are literally their therapist."
