High praise: Charlie Sheen says Antonio Villaraigosa 'knows how to party'

52845 full

A lot of things have been said about Antonio Villaraigosa during his seven-and-a-half years as Mayor of Los Angeles. And now, thanks to an early morning tweet by none other than Hollywood bad boy Charlie Sheen, we can add "epic partier" to that list.

Hizzoner apparently was one of the attendees of the grand opening of what appears to be a new bar Sheen christened Friday night. The Epic Bar (nicknamed "SheenZ" by the actor) sits atop the Hotel El Ganzo in San Jose del Cabo, Baja California, Mexico.

Guitar hero Slash rocked out the chilled crowd, dipping into the Guns N Roses and Led Zeppelin songbook, as he often does when he performs live. 

But the only person at the bash who got a shout-out from the controversial mischief maker on Twitter was L.A.'s mayor.

"From Boyle Heights 2 Mayor of LA..! @hotelelganzo 2 party w/SHEEN at SheenZ..! Antonio Villaraigosa knows how to party!" Sheen tweeted Saturday morning just after 8 a.m. to his 8.6 million followers. 

UPDATE: A spokesman for the mayor said Saturday that Villaraigosa would be in Mexico until Jan. 2, but couldn't provide any other specifics, including whether the mayor paid for his own trip.

Sunday morning, the photo was no longer on Sheen's Twitter feed.
