The more the merrier: Oktoberfest at Fairplex
We donned our best beer maiden dresses, pigtailed our hair and set off for Oktoberfest at Pomona Fairplex.
Situated within the enormous fairgrounds and located right next to Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare was this year’s Oktoberfest.
Through the main entrance we stepped into a large hall decorated to the brim with German storefronts, props and, of course, beer stands.
The Press Restaurant features Sunday dinner piano music with Patrick Vargas at 6 p.m. followed by Cinema Sundays featuring The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) and Dead Alive (1992). 9 p.m. to midnight on Sunday, October 20.
Legendary rhythm and blues saxophonist Big Jay McNeely will perform at the Claremont supper club and lounge Hip Kitty Jazz and Fondue on Saturday, August 24 at 8 p.m. Big Jay scored his first Billboard hit in 1949 with an instrumental titled “The Deacon’s Hop” and, on the strength of his flamboyant “honking” style, remained popular throughout the 1950s and early 1960s.
It has been a long road filled with rewrites, complicated layouts and multiple edits, but we have finally come to the end: The 2013-2014 COURIER Almanac is finished!
It took several weeks to complete the massive annual publication headed by COURIER editor Kathryn Dunn. Photo editor Steven Felschundneff had the great idea for the cover, taking bird’s-eye photography out of high-flying Howard Bunte’s plane. Peter Weinberger designed the cover, with a little graphics help from Jenelle Rensch. COURIER photo/Jenelle Rensch
