Summer Days at the Beach
By Bruce HB Johnson
I chose my parents wisely, so I could be born and raised in Coronado. My dad was a Navy Fighter Pilot. Growing up on the island was like being in Mayberry, except we had a beach. Summers were magical. School got out in early June for summer vacation and did not resume until after Labor Day…

Spandex and side-ponytails reigned supreme at the Horton Grand Theatre in downtown San Diego this weekend -- and not just on the stage. Audience members sported 1980s scrunchies and legwarmers as they mingled in the lobby, complimenting each other on the brightest shade of neon.
Inside the theatre, a feeling of familiarity permeated, and not just because everyone had loved and lived through the…Continue

Spiro’s Greek Cafe is a Coronado restaurant favorite, maybe because it is the only Greek food on island, maybe because it is snug in the prime location of the Ferry Landing, but most likely because of the quality of food Spiro’s Gyros consistently delivers.
Spiro’s Greek Cafe opened up shop in Coronado 17 years ago by Nancy and Spiro Chaconas. Spiro is a Greek native,…Continue

Walking on Coronado Beach early one morning with Capt. Al Waldman, USNR, by now in his 80’s, who always proudly wore his USNA Class of 1943 sweatshirt, we could see, heading our way, a large group of Navy SEALs running in formation. Al and I stopped while they ran past. Al beaming and…

Summer gets most of the attention in San Diego, and with good reason. After all, who doesn’t want to spend at least a week or two of their summer soaking up the sun or frolicking in the sand and surf in Southern California?
San Diego is by no means a strictly-summer destination, though. In fact, we’d argue that fall here is just as awesome as summer. Though slightly cooler, the weather is still flawless, and the change of seasons brings with it a wave of fun…Continue

American Rhythm at The Lamb's Players Theatre, 2001

Meryl Streep puts on the performance of a lifetime in this dramatic, feel good film of the summer. Streep delicately balances her persona of Ricki, a wannabe big time musician confined to playing gigs at a local bar as well as being chained to the role of Linda, absentee Mom to three and divorce.
This story addresses the difficulty in not only finding who you are and embracing that person, but also not giving a damn what others think of you. Ricki is well aware of the…Continue

A career in show business can take some strange twists. Sometimes a performer gets plucked out of nowhere and placed the spotlight by an unlikely patron. In 1989, heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson asked John Pagano to sing the National Anthem before one of his bouts in Las Vegas. That performance launched Pagano from regional crooner to international star, singing as the lead male vocalist in Burt Bacharach’s band.
On August 15, Pagano will sing the…Continue
