A Weekend in Downtown Pomona

Friday night's Fresh Air Flicks hosted the 1963 James Bond movie, From Russia With Love, starring Sean Connery. The Glass House hosted a group called "Casualties", strange looking hairdos and clothing, but apparently successful. The FOX hosted a sell out crowd for "Band of Horses". Saturday's "Potato Cook off" at the dba256 was a hit. The winner was A.S. Ashley, and his secret weapon Natalie, with a potato churizo mix that was really quit tasty. Second place went to Pam Henry who actually cooked the dish in her backyard (The Henry's were victims of a fire last month that destroyed their home.) Kudos to Pam Henry! A very tasty dish (the potato dish, that is). Saturday evening featured "Metro Night Out" in Downtown's Thomas Plaza. A great evening in spite of the heat. CBS2/KCAL9 set up a booth and gave out samples of Coldstone ice cream among other items. Over 1600 people attended the market and car show (almost 100 entries). We were all treated to authentic Aztec dancers in full regalia, a very impressive and inspiring show. Sunday afternoon Downtown Pomona experienced a first! Opera at the FOX Theatre. The Repertory Opera Company presented Donizetti's Elixir of Love. It was an absolute joy to see. It was truly a fun afternoon, the cast performed exceptionally with their acting and signing (singing) skills. Bravo!

So there you have it, just a typical weekend in Downtown Pomona, and did I mention all the fine dining and entertainment venues? If you haven't been to Downtown Pomona lately, you should really come for a visit...we would love to show you around!

Just a note. While I'm not a music critic. I believe that Metro Pomona meant to say "Singing skills." I'm a little hard of hearing, but the acoustics at the Fox were terrific and didn't require "signing." At least not for me.
