Here’s an opportunity to enjoy a great local trio: Next Tuesday, August 3rd from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. the popular "Mystic Knights Trio" will perform for one evening only at Ugo Wine Bar,3865 Cardiff Ave., Culver City. You may have previously enjoyed their tunes at the Culver Hotel and Rush Street, so now you can grab some tasty Italian food and/or wine and hear Culver City's own Martin (Sonny "B") Bennett on percussion, Dave Melton on guitar, and Roger Handy on harmonica and vocals perform a wide variety of American Roots Music.
Wasn’t that Martha Stewart? Nope, it was Martha Roda‘s elegant table setting that caught everyone’s eye at last Thursday eve’s Culver City Music Festival in the City Hall courtyard. Some folks really know how to party!

Congratulations to new Culver City Lions Club president Elliot Heffler, who’s busily lining up members of the pride to work their water-and-t-shirt booth at the upcoming Fiesta LaBallona. The speaker at last week’s Lions luncheon meeting was well-received; popular CCPD Public Relations Officer Ron Iizuka provided statistics on the force, crime rates, and more. (Lt. Iizuka, who works the 6:00 p.m. – 4:00 a.m. shift, probably needed a nap, but was still able to present a great program!)
