Pageant of the Masters is a community event City of Laguna Beach has done for the better part of the last century. It's very difficult to describe but well worth attending every 10 years or so.
AnnaMarie can't wait; I think Shoo's wife Pam is pretty excited too. Shoo's resigned himself but I think he'll be glad he went. Byron and Paula will love it as will Mike F. I don't know Mike's date so there's a wild card involved.
I'm really looking forward to it. It will be my third time; Once in high school, once when AnnaMarie and I were dating.
There's a real 'Wow' factor. So here's what they do--- they take famous works of art and replicate them lifesize, but use real people in the paintings or sculpture. The way the light it you'd swear it's a flat painting. Every now and then someone wiggles a little though. The curtains close, they quickly change to another one. There's narration, music, and a theme--this year's is "Eat, Drink and be Merry". We will follow that theme before and after the Pageant with dinner out and a Hotel stay (Laguna Beach is a few hour drive from Cuyamaca)
