Treat yourself to the dance performance La noche del mundo at Casa del Lago. Rather than a show, Aura Arreola’s brain child is an exploration of the body and its subconscious response to experiences of confinement, skillfully staged through several performance techniques such as immersive theater and butoh. Product of a thorough research and accompanied by experimental music, this presentation will very likely make a deep impression. Tickets are 150 pesos and teacher, student and senior discounts are available. Casa del Lago, 7 p.m.
You know there is no such thing as a guilty pleasure, but only pleasure itself. That is why Bahía Bar — the Colossus of Tolsá — brings you “Nacotheque,” a party featuring only music in Spanish. Old, new and forgotten tracks will make sure you dance, sing, remember or cry your heart out. No judgement. All fun. Marcelo C. Baez, DJ and mastermind behind this party, has made a special pledge to deliver a magical evening in his beloved “Chilangolandia.” Entrance is 50 pesos and doors open at 10 p.m.
Get up early, bring your best friend and head to Hipódromo de las Américas. Also call your other friends and invite them to the Perrotón, a charitable event that raises money for “Cambia un destino,” a non-profit that provides medical and foster care to stray dogs.

This family-friendly event caters for people with special needs as well as elders, providing a special circuit for them. Don’t forget to bring your pet’s leash and be there at 7 a.m.
