Some folks may have noticed that ubiquitous me was not at events last weekend that I was expected to attend.
I had a date Friday with a handsome doctor, Steven Chang, which I slept through as he performed minor surgery on my neck — at 7:30 a.m., no less, and spent the rest of the weekend recovering.
While I was hors de combat, so to speak, Laguna didn't miss a beat.
The Chamber of Commerce hosted the annual State of the City luncheon. For those like me who missed it, read interim Coastline city editor Alisha Gomez's account on the front page. And thanks to architect Gregg Abel and former Mayor Cheryl Kinsman for noticing that I wasn't there.
That night, the next-to-last free Sunset Serenade of the spring was performed at Picnic Beach in Heisler Park, with Mancini/Stone Trio performing vibraphone jazz.
Last chance to be serenaded until the fall season is Friday. The talents of John Troy and singer-songwriter Jason Feddy will be showcased at the new Amphitheater in the Park, where most performances are held unless the grass needs to be re-sodded, as happened last weekend. Music starts at 6:30 p.m.
