RICKY GERVAIS LIVE: We're watching the animated version of the comic's famous radio podcasts. And when those podcasts are turned into a type of beverage, or a piece of clothing, we will buy those, too. Because, we will support the funny, again and again. Monkey news. Ricky! Saturday, May 15 and Sunday, May 16 at the Nokia Theatre
LONG BEACH LESBIAN & GAY PRIDE: Two days, a bevy of performers -- think Divine Brown, A Flock of Seagulls, and Allison Iraheta -- plus all the merriment and celebration around Shoreline Drive. Plus plus, that oh-so-big parade on Sunday. Festival's on Saturday, May 15 and Sunday, May 16
CAROLE KING AND JAMES TAYLOR: Probably like thousands of others, we've stared hard at the cover of Carole King's "Tapestry" and wanted to inhabit that soft-focus, story-filled world. We can on Friday, May 14 and Saturday, May 15, when the legend joins up with another legend at the Hollywood Bowl. Dear Mr. Taylor, please sing "Steamroller." Thank you.
DUCK-A-THON: Thousands of bright yellow rubber ducks thrown into the foamy surf. Which will make it first? And how much money will get raised for the AltaMed Huntington Beach Community Clinic? Cameras are a must at this famous fundraiser. May 14-16, but but the ducks/surf deal happens on Saturday, May 15.
WINE 101: AN INTRODUCTION TO WINE: Two days of Wine 101. It's not a two-day class, note; you can either take the Saturday, May 15 course or the one on Sunday, May 16. And it all happens at that downtown-close gem, the San Antonio Winery. And a nice lunch will be served.
