Canceled last year and having raised minimal funds in 2001, the Thurston Middle School PTA's "Out on the Town" fund-raiser on April 30 grossed $8,000. The dinner/dance attracted 160 parents, teachers, administration and public officials at $50 a ticket, which included a four-course meal at the Laguna Village Bistro. Organizers Caroline Wright and Kathleen Moore were expecting 40 to 50 people, about twice the number of 2001's turnout. "So many people contributed," Wright said, "and not just financially.

Greetings Laguna, I'm in the small surfing beach town of Pichilemu, which is home to local surfing legend Ramon Navarro. I'm writing from a rather overcrowded Internet cafe on a cold dreary day. They're blasting Snoop Dog and it's 11 a.m.; I left the local disco a couple of hours ago and they were playing the same music. I guess the Chileans like hip-hop. Outside on the streets, hundreds of people are milling around, shopping, eating at the local food carts or just hanging on the corners talking while the "rat" dogs follow them around hoping for a piece of food.

WHAT'S SO FUNNY This summer's Sawdust Festival will be closing soon, so if you haven't gotten out there yet you should hustle. The Sawdust is a rare triumph -- a long-running, group artistic endeavor, its own self-sustaining community. I'm fond of the Festival because, aside from its arts-and-crafts appeal, it's the scene of my big boy-girl story. Nineteen years ago I came to opening night, having wangled an invitation from Patti Jo Reynolds, whom I knew from the Irvine newspaper syndicate where we worked.

While the funny fantasy film "Xanadu" wasn't a commercial success, it's getting a new theatrical take with Laguna Beach's No Square Theatre's adaption opening Saturday. Known for women in roller skates and an award-winning soundtrack featuring Olivia Newton-John and the Electric Light Orchestra, the 1980 film eventually acquired a cult following and its Broadway adaptation received positive reviews. Director Joe Lauderdale saw the Broadway show in 2008 and was immediately smitten.

Suzie Harrison The club was thumping last night as Laguna's Sir Adamsmasher, also know as KatoSpace, was throwing down a high-energy performance complete with all the toppings of premium octane music -- serving it up in a funky, eclectic, electronic platter of delicious tracks. Kato was giving out amplitude o' plenty at his pre-launch for Velcro Percolator -- a new monthly exploration in lo and hi fi audio and visual frontiers described as a convergence of glitch, electroclash, synth punk, acoustic jazz house, lounge and new discoveries at Costa Mesa's Detroit Bar, which he'll also create in Laguna.

Laguna Beach should be celebrated as a music colony - especially for world-class reggae - as much as an art colony. It started back in the late '70s, when Laguna native Eric "Redz" Morton was 21 and gigging as the bassist in a L.A. Latin jazz band called La Luce. Unfortunately, this was the horrendous period of pop culture known as the disco era, and fabulously textured Latin jazz wasn't the music to eat 'ludes and snort coke to. Disco was decidedly not a path Redz was willing to follow (anyone who knows the rootsy Redz can't picture him in sequins and platform shoes)

DINING OUT Locals who frequently peruse Downtown Laguna Beach are likely to have sampled the delicious little pizza bites sometimes offered by perky waitresses outside the Laguna Beach Brewing Company. But there is so much more to this amazing two-story restaurant/night club than those wood-fired, brick-oven-baked pizzas lavished with cheese and the hand-crafted ales and lagers brewed on site. Enter by the side door on Laguna Avenue and discover a lineup of steel brewing tanks behind the sizable bar and nearby pool table.

DINING OUT It has been almost 34 years since lovely Las Brisas replaced Laguna's long famed landmark, Victor Hugo Inn. Although Iocals were understandably adamant at the time, it was not long before they realized that the primo oceanfront location adjacent to our superlative Art Museum, would become a definitive setting for the featured "seafoods of Mexico." What transpired was a handsome reconstruction of the sprawling bluffside locale encompassing a quartet of attractively appointed levels starting with a festive patio above the splendiferous rose gardens.
