Evening at Segerstrom Theatre

I treated my oldest daughter, Angelika, to a stage show at the gorgeous Segerstrom Theatre in Costa Mesa last Thursday evening, for a performance of Dirty Dancing. That had always been one of her favorite movies. Before she arrived from work, I wandered around, using my iPhone to take the pictures in this gallery. The theatre is in […]

Rat Pack Tribute at Lido

Last Friday after work, and after dinner at the Crab Cooker, I attended a concert at the Lido Theatre in Newport Beach. When it opened in 1938, the Lido was a movie theater. These days, it’s used for live concerts and occasional special showing movies. I arrived early and felt lucky to get a front row seat! On stage was a […]

Bowl-ing

A summer in the southland just isn’t complete without Bowl-ing, Hollywood Bowl-ing, that is! While the orchestra, band, singers or dancers may be the reason tickets are sold, it’s the atmosphere and pre-show picnic people look forward to nearly as much as whichever main event. Bowl dining has become as famous as the bowl itself. […]

Party Party, Pink Martini style!

My recent big number birthday was celebrated in style, Pink Martini style, at the Hollywood Bowl, a fantastic venue, by the way. Guest list complete, invitations emailed, planning centered on an all-pink theme. All-pink for two reasons, the first being rather obvious – the name of the Portland, Oregon band playing.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
