events going on in Huntington Beach

Here is the info I sent out in my last newsletter.... There's some fun stuff going on in Huntington Beach.

First, Gallaghers (downtown HB) has been implementing a lot of changes and now they have even more entertainment than ever. Pop in on any Wednesday night, 6:30 - 9:30, to enjoy some Jazz! Performing is Elaine Miles and special guest guitarist John Chiodini. Go for the Jazz, stay for the great food & spirits.

On Thursday night, you really do need visit Absolutely Fabulous, 6026 Warner Ave. (at Springdale). They are having a ribbon cutting at 5pm for their expansion, more than doubling their space. They are truly a fabulous shop, filled with unbelievable and unique gift items. And at 6:30, world renowned sculptor, Randy Cooper will be doing a live demonstration of his work. Mr. Cooper is best-known for his unique "shadow sculptures." Each sculpture is crafted by hand, without molds, from wire mesh to form beautiful human figures, animals or abstract forms. The form is brought to life by a source of light over the sculpture, onto a canvas. The public is welcome and it will be worth the visit, I've seen Mr. Coopers work - very impressive!

If you missed Bethany Owen (woman of 1001 Voices and Faces) when she performed over Labor Day weekend, will have another chance to see this talented and funny lady! She will be performing on the 23rd & 24th (6pm) at Baci, 18784 Beach Blvd. It's dinner & a show, which includes Antipasto House Salad Baci, Filet Mignon Rossini or Salmone s/Champagne Sauce, Tiramisu desert. Reservations or more info: 714-965-1194 or

It's not too late to catch Oktoberfest either. Running two more weeks (last day, Nov 1). Old World Festival Hall (on Center behind Bella Terra) is where you will find all the beer and fun you can handle. I've been twice now - one time I even had the VIP area for all my friends. Talk to them about renting one of their VIP areas. So nice to have a place to sit when ever you want! And still so close to the dance floor to get out and chicken dance! All the info (and discounts) can be on their site:

Finally, you know what is around the corner don't you? Halloween of course. Did you know I throw an annual party? Of course my HB locals are welcome, the only problem is you have to venture in to Long Beach for the party. (I have yet to find a place that can accommodate me here.) It is the 21st Annual Halloween BOO with about 300 people attending. Live band & DJ (two areas for dancing), food, tarot cards, professional photographer, tons of decorations. The party is Friday, October 30, 8pm - 2am at Berth 55 Queens Wharf (555 Pico Ave, Long Beach). It is only $20 in advance ($25 a the door). Get all the details at: . And if you still need a costume, I totally recommend Bianca's Costumes : . Most are historical, but there are so many looks she can create - she is so creative and you'll be the best dressed at your Halloween gig. Check it out!
