Venice Sign Rebirth

We rode the bus to the Venice Fest today. Venice was celebrating the rebirth of the lighted sign that used to hang over Windward Ave in the early 1900's. They had a lineup of bands including the band Venice.

Back in college I played in a saxophone quartet. Some guys from the Venice (the band) saw us playing on the 3rd Street Promenade and asked us if we would open for them at one of their concerts at the Mayfair Theater. We did, and it was a lot of fun. It was cool to see them today after all these years.

We also spent some time today hanging out at the beach near the dancing rollerskating area. I love to watch those people dance and skate - there are so many talented people there.
