‘Feliz Navi Divas!’ show at Casita Del Campo, Sat., Nov. 25 – Tues., Nov. 28

Chico’s Angels are hanging their cha cha stockings and kicking off the holidays with “Feliz Navi Divas!”

Kay Sedia was born in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. She is the youngest of 18 children and the prettiest of them all. So pretty in fact, she won the title and crown of Miss Tijuana Natural Springs Water, “The water that springs right through you.” One of her duties as Miss Tijuana Springs was a self-guided, one-woman boat tour of the Pacific Ocean via San Diego. Thought to be dead and lost at sea, Kay emerged back into the border spotlight. It was the charity she founded, “Save the Donkeys,” which let her hometown know that she was O-Kay! She soon became romantically involved with her hunky arresting immigration officer. Yes, there’s more. At the Cavern Club at Casita Del Campo located at 1920 Hyperion Ave. in Silverlake.
