Although details are a bit fuzzy as to why, we can confirm Danny Trejo, ye of Machete fame, was in town on Friday night.

The 70-year-old (WHAT!??) character actor was spotted sipping a simple cranberry juice while watching an MMA fight on Spike TV at Blue Box Bar, according to the staff. Because when Danny Fuckin' Trejo wants to watch a mixed martial arts drag-out fight, you put the damn thing on. Trejo didn't shy away from posing for photos with fans, because that's just how cool he is. 

Photos on the Los Angeles native's Twitter account show he's been all over the Lone Star State since Thursday, February 26, when he snapped a few pics with Texas State University students...
But not before taking a brief trip to Lockhart for some real barbecue. 
Did you perchance stumble on Navajas while out on Friday night? Let us know in the comments below.
