Fall has arrived and the Ol’ Ghouls are now roaming the streets of Benicia. I am taking this opportunity to send good thoughts to Solano County, Napa & Sonoma which are severely threatened by wildfires this weekend. Millions of people are out of electricity and several highways are now closed down. Please keep people, critters and grapes safe!
“Beach Blanket Babylon, San Francisco’s hilarious pop culture musical revue, is the perfect night out with friends. Celebrating over 16,000 performances and seen by over six million people from around the world, this internationally acclaimed production continues to delight audiences at Club Fugazi in San Francisco’s North Beach district with its spectacular costumes and outrageously gigantic hats!
Beach Blanket Babylon follows Snow White as she takes a fast-paced journey around the world in search of her “Prince Charming.” Along the way she encounters a star-studded, ever-changing line-up of hilarious pop culture characters, including Donald and Melania Trump, Kim Jong-un, Colin Kaepernick, Vladimir Putin, Lady Gaga, Wonder Woman, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Sarah Huckabee, Ivanka Trump, Serena Williams, Barack and Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Taylor Swift, Oprah, Prince Harry and Meghan, and the Golden State Warriors.”
If you’re going to San Francisco, do not miss this absolute gem in the middle of North Beach. I must have seen it 15 times over the past 21 years. Here is the link to their website: https://www.beachblanketbabylon.com/
Unfortunately, it would seem that we will be covered in most needed rain tomorrow and so I will not have the great photo ops that I had last year in the little town of Benicia. People get very creative decorating their shops on Main Street for the annual competition and it is a fun and colorful experience to stroll up and down the street.
