SUNDAYS IN SUMMER CABARET SERIES
I for one am so proud of last week's Brad Seiple. Joel Baker, who played
for his show, and I started an open mic 7 years ago at Confession and Brad
starting going there to sing. He has come a long way since. Everyone
gave him the thumbs up on the way out which is always a good sign.

This week we local performer RON COHN making his 7th annual
appearance with the Sundays In Summer Series. Ron is a great
storyteller and picks some great material so I know it will be
good. And he'll have DENIS MOREEN on piano.  
Doors open at 1 PM and open seating at 1:30 PM
Tickets are $11 cash at the door.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK
  
No Excuses - Only 2 Ingredients
LEMON CAKE BARS

INGREDIENTS:  

1 box angel food cake mix
1 (22-ounce) can lemon pie filling
Powdered sugar (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F, and spray a 9 x 13-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, stir together the angel food cake mix and lemon pie filling.
Once fully mixed, add to the prepared pan, and bake for about 35 minutes,
until fully cooked and the top is lightly browned.

Let the cake cool, cut it into bars, and if desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar. 
TWISTED CARTOONS
 

LEAVE YOUR ANGER BEHIND...

In today's crazy world, there's no shortage of things to make you angry. But is angry really the way you want to be?

Anger certainly grabs your attention and gives you a burst of energy. Yet at the end of the day it has very little to offer.

Don't let anger trap you into destructive behavior. Step away from the desire for revenge, and find a positive response.

Focus on the good you can do, fences you can mend, conflicts you can solve, and confidently move forward to make things better for everyone. :)
NEED POSTCARDS PRINTED??? 

IT'S THE BEST DEAL ANYWHERE

Greetings from BELLA DA BALL:

Hope you are having a great year.  Hard to believe it is almost August.
The Greater Palm Springs Pride is only months away.  The Festival and the Parade will both be held downtown Palm Springs again this year.  And, the festival will be a FREE admission event again!

Festival hours tentatively will be Saturday, November 5,  11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday, November 6, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
 
The parade on Sunday will start further north on Palm Canyon and end near Amado and the Hyatt. This will also be one of the main entrances to the Festival.
 
Please let everyone you know what the days are for this year's festival and parade and that it will be a free event!
 
Now, onto specifics about possibly performing at Palm Springs Pride.   Please review and answer and email back to me.  Please feel free to forward this to other potential entertainers.  All responses are subject to review and consideration.  Thank you!

13.    The cabaret is a drama-free zone.  Anyone not abiding by coordinator's, committee's, security's rules and regulations may be asked to leave.
 
14.    Do you wish to have a photo of you in pride program?  If so, a high resolution photo is requested and should be sent at a later time when requested.  Please do not send photos at this time.
 
15.    Appearances/performances are volunteer, no compensation.  Tips are yours to keep.
