Hot Feet Guaranteed
Monday evening the irrepressible Barbara Venezia will host the Feet To The Fire forum at Costa Mesa's Neighborhood Community Center, 1845 Park Avenue (Lions Park). The event begins at 7:00 p.m. and is scheduled to run until 9:00 p.m.
Joining Venezia will be Register columnist Frank Mickadeit, Daily Pilot Editor John Canalis, Newport Beach Independent Editor Roger Bloom and Voice of OC Editor Norberto Santana, Jr.
They will toast the phalanges of Jim Righeimer, Colin McCarthy, Wendy Leece and Nick Berardino on the question: Should Costa Mesa be run more like a business?
The gathering promised to be just a little tense, but the fact that a brick with a note attached to it was tossed through the door of Mayor Gary Monahan's pub in the early hours of Saturday will certainly add to that tension.
CMTV TO COVER
It's my understanding that Dane Bora and Brad Long of CMTV will be present to tape the event for future viewing.
BIG TIME ATTENTION
Adding to the fun of this week is the fact that New Yorker Magazine writer Tad Friend will be in town to attend the forum, the council meeting on Tuesday and interview several individuals as he gathers information for a future article about Costa Mesa.
