TEA TIME AT NOSH CAFE
One can always count on Susan McKenna – owner of downtown San Pedro’s Nosh Café – to put on a classy event with delectable treats – even when the primary customers are kids ages six through twelve.
Susan -- with her help of longtime friend Marisa Guiffre wanted to teach children a bit about afternoon tea English/Aussie style – spoiling them with a triumph of colorful foods – from big, juicy strawberries with real whipped cream to sausage rolls with finger sandwiches -- cucumber, salmon and ham.
While the kids enjoyed their food, it seemed they enjoyed too the actual act of pouring tea out for each other and reading their stories out loud to their parents, who also attended.
The writing group – some of whom have come for two years – meet regularly on Wednesdays at the Corner Store, which Susan and Marisa once owned. The new Corner Store Owner Peggy Lindquist has allowed the students to meet their each week.
The next writing session begins May 5.

DRIVER OF CAR THAT FLIPPED OVER ON SIDE OF PASEO DEL MAR LAST WEDNESDAY CHARGED
The driver of a car, who allegedly drove erratically along Paseo del Mar last Wednesday (March 27), was charged last week with a felony.
Sgt. Jon Aufdemberg, now in charge of the Los Angeles Police’s South Traffic Division’s Community Traffic Safety Unit, said the driver was arrested for a felony of drunken driving or driving under the influence of drugs.
The passenger was taken to the hospital with the complaints of pain and was treated and released, Aufdemberg said.
DON’T FORGET THE FAMILY KITE FLYING EVENT APRIL 10 AT SAN PEDRO’S 22nd STREET PARK
Volunteers plan to teach children how to build and fly kites at The “First Annual Kite Fly” in San Pedro – an event hoped to bring families and the community together.
Professional kite flyers will launch their more spectacular kites on Saturday April 10 a.m. to 2 while volunteers spend time teaching children how to build and fly their own kites. The event, at 22nd Street Park, is free.
About 1,000 instructional kites will be available, said James Weston, who learned the art of kite flying when his mother owned and operated the Up, Up & Away kite store in Seal Beach. The event is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club.
Residents James and Monica Weston both learned kite flying techniques from James mother, Monty, who launched an annual event called the Japan American Annual Kite Festival in Seal Beach, now going into his 15th year.
Monty died in 2007, but the store remained in the family’s hands when James’s sister-in-law-Kim took it over.
