Mayor Ron Nirenberg is friends with Ritchie Valens, y'all.

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.
Aww!



Nirenberg tweeted the actor back soon after.
