Plea to AIG CEO To Help SAVE the BOOM – Forever!!!
Laguna Beach, CA – 35 supporters of SAVE the BOOM!!! from Orange County and Los Angeles descended on the AIG (NYSE: AIG) Tower in Century City on Tuesday, April 1st at our lunch-time demonstration. World famous Bagpiper, Lorne Cousin played to cheers of SAVE the BOOM!!! SAVE the BOOM!!! AIG – SAVE the BOOM!!!
Calendar Models Ryan Liddell (July) and Gustavo Marzolla (February) handed out Men of Laguna Beach Calendars to some of the lucky passerby’s on their way to lunch. Other yellow T-shirted men and women gave away Boom Bananas and Tangerines along with flyers and other information on our nearly two year effort to save our landmark bar and hotel. Lots of car horns were honked and thumbs up given to all of us during the hour long demonstration. Over 200 post cards were signed addressed to Boom Boom Room and Coast Inn owner, Steven Udvar-Hazy asking him to drastically reduce the asking prince for the property or consider donating it the gay community.
There was great television, radio, newspaper and web coverage of the event. Save the BOOM!!!
