Alter weeks of humidity and late season "'June gloom," it seems the weather going to start acting like July. I say it's about time, seeing as it's almost August. Weekend happenings If you're wondering what's going on in the way on entertainment this weekend, read closely. At the Descanso Beach Club (which will be closed during the day on Saturday for a private party), there will be live reggae on Friday with Lionheart. At the Casino Dock Care, which is now pouring your favorite concoctions, thanks |o their new liquor license, you'll find Rodger Connelly on Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. and the Gilroy Brothers on Saturday and Sunday. The brothers are up at The Landing on Friday and Saturday nights. Speaking of the El Encanto, Mary Schickling's Laff Lounge is going gangbuslers and if you want to spend an evening in stitches, get your tickets early. The Blue Parrot has been stirring it up with live music over looking the bay and the Chan- ncl House has Bob Salisbury at the piano. There's live jazz Wednes- days and Thursdays at the Cx~untry Club; karaoke at El Galleon and the Chi Chi Club has its popular Ms. Hawaiian Tropic Catalina contest on Friday nights. Down at the other end of town, Luau Larry's has James Moody on Thursdays (he moves to CC Gallaghers for the weekend) and Jim Ford on the weekend. At Avalon Live, Beto l x)vato is back in town with his immensely popular blues show on Friday and Saturday night. Plus, the Marlin Club J.L.'s Locker Room have thcir own brand of fun tk)r all who walk through the door. If you can't find something to your taste in that cornucopia of entertainment offerings, you have strange tastes indeed. The view from my window Something left Avalon a couple of years ago and many of us still miss it. It was another way tbr us to give our Island paradise a sense of identity. Every time we mailed something, wc could gloat ovcr the fact that we live here. For those visit, it was a way to add a little something extra to their letters home. just for the price of a stamp. The Avalon t~)stmark is gone, but not forgotten--and I say we get it back. If wi~ ffork hard enough at it, someone, somewhere will give ir~i If nothing else, thcy+ll decide that it's cosier to give us back our postmark than to have to read another letter complaining about the fact that we don't have one. The folks down at our Post Office probably gct enough complaints about it already--plus, they've got too much other stuff to do. Let's take the issue higher up. If you want the postmark, write a lct- ter to your senator, representative and the U.S. Postmaster. Make sure and point out thai even though the letter was written and mailcd in the quaint town of Avalon, it has a postmark from Long Beach--which most people will say is something other than quaint.
