Well, among other things, the Recall Amante folks will be holding a support (and hopefully progress) meeting in Old Town Tustin this evening at 6pm. If you are interested in joining the team or getting an update (we are) stop by 345 W. 6th St., Old Town Tustin. I never have gotten a phone number or email so I guess they just want us to come on by, no RSVP needed. Hopefully, they will be serving milk and cookies.
That’s because their nemesis, Boss Tweed Amante, will be holding a BBQ fundraiser at Quinns Old Town Grill on August 25th. The catch is, unlike the Recall Amante group, you will have to fork over a minimum $99 per person for the privilege of cozying up to Jerry, eating BBQ and drinking from, what I suspect will be, an overpriced bar. Our experience with Quinns, as well as others from various websites leads us to believe Jerry chose Quinns (or vice-versa) due more to the owner’s penchant for dabbling in local politics rather than the food or service. Otherwise, why not go down to the famous Beach Pit BBQ a half block down? One has to wonder if it will be as successful as his last fundraiser at the Tustin Ranch Golf Club. Of course, with all the trouble Jerry has stirred with Old Town residents, you have to wonder why he even bothers coming down there. Perhaps it is to make up to them like he appears to have done with the local American Legion Post. Our friends over at the Liberal OC have expanded background on that.
So, if you were looking for something to do on a quiet Monday night, come on down and join us. I’ll be there to check out the scene and report back to you. And, please tell your friends about this blog. It is how we grow our readership.
