Another Incredible Short, From Filmmaker John Keitel
Well, Great News! Many of you followed the Men of Laguna Beach Calendar Contest from the open casting last summer, to the launch parties and calendar signings throughout the fall.

It was made as the pilot for a reality show that we have been pitching for the 2009 Calendar Contest. We have been very fortunate to have another angel out there in cyberspace.

For Sale Signs Still Up
Just checked again this morning and there are still two for sale signs up in the window of the Boom Boom Room. Interested parties are asked to call Joe Smith at Monarch Bay Realty 949-489-1100. Make them and offer and remodel this incredible property and watch the business soar. The New Boom, right on the Pacific Ocean, could be the finest gay destination property in the world. And you will help preserve the over 100 years of gay and lesbian history in Laguna Beach.Taken Monday, April 14, 2008
