this write-up is from dana miller’s column in the current issue of IN Los Angeles Magazine:

Not long ago I wrote of a friend with a plan. A dear, elegant gent named Fred Karger is on a mission with an intense passion to save the Boom Boom Room in Laguna. It has been sold to a straight guy for millions and apparently the guy’s concept is an upscale bed & breakfast with a swell restaurant. Fred is tenacious if nothing else. He has just launched his new Web site, filled with action items including a petition. Check it out at Good luck Fred!

thank you, Dana!

Saturday’s Signature Gathering

yesterday if you were grocery shopping at Ralphs market in laguna beach you would have seen a card table, signs, candy, two enthusiastic signature gatherers, and some excitement from the customers (and yes, a giant piñata). at several points, there was a line to sign the SAVE the BOOM!!! petition.

to get your own petition, simply go to and print one out for yourself. they are fun and easy to use. sign the top box and get four more signatures from your friends and family and mail to the address at the bottom of the petition: 1278 Glenneyre, #20, laguna beach, ca 92651
