Not really, but he is pals with actor Lou Diamond Phillips, who played the late rising star in the 1987 biopic La Bamba.
Phillips was in San Antonio Sunday for a special screening of the film followed by a discussion at the Tobin Center. After the puro event, Phillips caught up with Nirenberg and his wife Erika Prosper.
He also gave a shoutout to the mayor and San Antonio's First Lady on Twitter. In the tweet, the actor called the San Antonio couple his friends.
Always a privilege to touch base with Mayor @Ron_Nirenberg whenever I’m in San Antonio. And, of course, @ErikaProsper just makes it more special! So proud of how these two continue to serve the community! Honored to be their friend. pic.twitter.com/OV5g5tZ8fs— Lou Diamond Phillips (@LouDPhillips) March 25, 2019
Nirenberg tweeted the actor back soon after.
