Music Sensation Yoshiki Kicks Off World Tour in Segerstrom Center for the Arts Debut

Yoshiki, Asia’s foremost rock icon and multi talented music superstar, will bring his new live show, Yoshiki Classical, to Segerstrom Center for the Arts for a special one-night-only concert on Friday, April 25 at 8 p.m.

in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. The show will feature music from Yoshiki’s latest album that includes collaborations with some of music’s renowned artists and legendary producers. Along with

Billboard Magazine, MTV, Reuters and AOL, Classic FM applauds Yoshiki Classical as an “enlightening exploration of one musical auteur’s quest to turn his music into something more than a series of rock ballads.”

Pianist Magazine went on to say Yoshiki Classical is a “true labor of love from a talented artist who’s made an impressive mark within the classical and rock genres.”

Is An Electric Or Hybrid Car Right For You? We’re all trying to do more with less these days, and many families are examining their impact on the environment, both at home and on the road. Electric and hybrid cars have been garnering much attention for having a smaller impact on the environment than traditional gas-powered vehicles, but how do you know if an alternative energy vehicle is right for you? Before choosing a new car, it’s helpful to understand the differences between hybrid and electric vehicles. Both types of vehicles are more efficient than traditional cars -- incorporating energy-saving and emissionsreducing features, many of which are related to innovative uses of lighterweight plastics and reinforced plastic composites. Hybrid cars are dual-powered, featuring an electric motor and a gas-powered engine. The electric motor is powered by a battery, while the gas engine is, of course, powered by gasoline. Depending on how and where you are driving, the car switches between the motor and the engine to achieve maximum fuel efficiency and reduce emissions. Electric cars, meanwhile, rely only Page 4

on an electric motor powered by a battery. As battery technology advances, these batteries are getting more powerful, less bulky and holding charges longer. The latest example of battery technology is the lithium-polymer (polymer means plastic) battery, which is growing in popularity among automakers. These batteries are up to 10 percent more efficient than the nickel-metal hydride batteries currently in many hybrid cars. Electric cars have come a long way, but so far they don’t have the same longrange capabilities of gaspowered vehicles. But with hybrid vehicles, consumers can achieve the reduced emissions of an electric motor, along with the longrange capabilities of a gas-powered engine. Automakers also are increasing the efficiency of hybrid and electric cars by investing in more efficient design. They are using materials such as reinforced plastic composites that can be as strong as steel, yet

The Ladera Ranch News

lighter -- to reduce vehicle weight and lighten the load on engines, while also maintaining the flexibility to design aerodynamic, visually exciting cars. Vehicles built using these lightweight and ultra-strong materials tend to weigh less, while providing high performance. And the green credentials don’t stop at the engine -- some new models include upholstery that uses plant oils to help make the plastic pad-

ding and even seat belts made from recycled plastic bottles. For more information about how plastics are fueling auto innovations, visit www. plasticsmakeitpossible.com. So is a hybrid or electric vehicle right for you? Today’s hybrid car models are great for commuters and road trips, while electric cars are handy for short trips to the grocery store or to pick the kids up from school.

The views and opinions expressed are those of the publisher and not any organization. No reproduction, in whole or in part is permitted without the express written permission of Ladera Ranch News.

Who is using social media? What is it exactly? When and where do people tweet, post and blog? Why do people engage in social media? Social media is everywhere. It encompasses blogs, social networks (such as Twitter, Facebook), professional networking avenues such as LinkedIn, and creative sites like Flickr, a photography-sharing website. People such as the teenager next door, grandma and celebrities are using social media outlets. Remember when Conan O’Brien made news by first breaking his recent public silence on Twitter? Did you know that there are more than 300 million active Facebook users who post nearly 1 billion photos monthly to their accounts? Additionally, it would take 7,000 years for all the photos on Flickr to be developed at a one-hour photo! People use social media for a variety of reasons. What role does social media play in your life? What role should it play? “The savvy social media user will know how to maximize social media use for their benefit,” explains Ted Long, academic director of Web Design & Interactive Media at The Illinois Institute of Art - Schaumburg. He recommends pointers from www. kodak.com as a guide to social media beginners. Some favorites follow. * Know what you are talking about. If you are going to work with social media, be involved in social media. Start your own Twitter account, Facebook page, read blogs and get engaged. That is the best way to understand the culture, tone, best practices, and protocol. * Always be transparent. When you are communicating in social media say who you are and who you work for. Don’t try to be sneaky and plant

comments, don’t hire people to go out and say nice things about you and stay away from ghost writing. Be genuine and be real. * Post frequently. It’s a lot of work, but don’t post to your blog then leave it for two weeks. Readers won’t have a reason to follow you on Twitter or check your blog if they can’t expect new content regularly. * Add value. Share tips, tricks and insights. People’s time is precious and they need to get something out of the time they spend with you. Make listening to you worth their time. * Respond. Answer questions, thank people even if it’s just a few words. Make it a two-way conversation. * Have fun. If you don’t like what you are doing, others will notice it and won’t enjoy interacting with you. Vanessa Jackson, assistant director of career services at The Illinois Institute of Art - Schaumburg, reminds users that social media should always be appropriate for a professional setting. “Social networking sites are like the invention of fire for the 21st century. There is great power, possibility and functionality, but use it improperly and you can burn yourself,” cautions

Jackson. Jackson advises: * You can lock your profile, but remember that a lot of information can be derived simply by looking at your profile picture. * Keep one clean profile per social media site. Don’t bother having two profiles, one for friends and one professional. * LinkedIn is for professional networking and shouldn’t be used in the same manner that you use Facebook unless all of your social media profiles are business appropriate. * Employers (and potential employers) really do check your social networking sites. Spell correctly, use proper grammar and don’t be vulgar or degrading to others. Social media has revolutionized the way we communicate, leaving many who don’t use it feeling out of touch. To begin, start slow, learn as you go, and remember to represent yourself in a way that is appropriate for the world to see. Then you too can experience the benefits of being more connected than ever before. To learn more about The Art Institutes schools, visit www.artinstitutes.edu.

local dentist dr. Michael tessier reveals source and cure of chipping upper Front teeth. A nice lady in her middle 50’s came into the office the other day with a chipped upper front tooth. It turns out that the opposing tooth on the lower arch was Dr. Michael Tessier rotated and a corner of it pushed forward, allowing it to bang against the upper tooth, which caused it to wear away the enamel on the backside of the upper tooth, and ultimately fracture that edge. We had to put a veneer on the front surface of the tooth to restore it to its’ original contour. Then we had to fix the source of the problem. During one’s lifetime, lower teeth migrate toward the front of the mouth, and then towards the center. This happens even if a person had orthodontics as a youngster, and the wisdom teeth really have little effect in crowding the lower front teeth. If the four lower front teeth stay in alignment with each other, they’ll stay straight. But, if the forward migration pressure is too great, they’ll start to rotate or over-lap each other. This has a deleterious effect on the supporting tissues of these teeth because it is harder to keep them clean and decay-free and the gums healthy. It also has a negative impact on the upper front teeth, making them stick out unevenly, or loosen the upper front teeth, predisposing them to premature loss.

Or, the fracturing mentioned above. The solution is to minimally, imperceptibly (0.25mm per side per tooth) reduce the width of each of the lower front teeth, then de-rotating them (realigning or straightening them) into the newly created space, so that they end up being out of harm’s way. This is an ideal application for Invisalign, the series of computer-generated aligners that orthodontically reposition teeth, invisibly. If the upper teeth are also crowded, our invisible alignment procedure called Invisalign will work to straighten them out, too.Some people may think that nobody sees the lower front teeth, so their alignment isn’t critically important. It turns out, that’s not the case. We need to keep all the teeth healthy and functional. I personally don’t think that everyone’s teeth have to perfectly straight. But, in my forty years (ouch) in the dental field, I’ve met many people who are reluctant to smile because they think their teeth are unsightly. Next time you’re close to a mirror, like when you’re looking to see that you got your teeth clean while brushing, check out your lower front teeth. If they’re crooked, call me. Or, if the edges of your upper front teeth are chipping, even barely noticeably, call me. Dr. Michael Tessier’s office is located at 28562 Oso Parkway, at the intersection of Oso and Antonio Parkways (down the walk from the car wash). Consultation appointments are always complimentary. His telephone number is 949-459-7212.

Tiger Trail: The Game Now Available for Mobile Devices from San Diego Zoo Safari Park

The San Diego Zoo Safari Park is preparing for the Memorial Day weekend opening of its Tull Family Tiger Trail and, starting today, has made available an online version of Tiger Trail: The Game for both iPhone and iPad. Tiger fans can take the challenge of saving a Sumatran tiger from the perils faced in the wild and getting it safely to a protected reserve. Tiger Trail: The Game, launched earlier this month, is now available for mobile devices. This is the Safari Park’s second online game and was created with a 3-D isometric view, giving a bird’s-eye view of the game. Players can help save an animated tiger roaming the wilds of Sumatra from falling into traps set by poachers. Players are also challenged to collect food and powerups to build their tiger’s strength. The game has a variety of levels designed to test the player’s skill with increasingly difficult challenges. With the added mobile access, iPhone and iPad owners can download the app for Tiger Trail: The Game to save

tigers wherever they are. About the Tull Family Tiger Trail Exhibit. The 5.2-acre Tull Family Tiger Trail opens at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park on Memorial Day weekend 2014. The forested habitat will include three separate yards for the tigers with rocks for climbing, ponds for swimming, deadwood trees to use as scratching posts and tall grasses for catnaps and will offer upclose views of the tigers, including a birthing den with outdoor space. Conservation efforts for the species will be highlighted throughout. In preparation for the opening on May 24, 2014, the Safari Park has launched a microsite about the Tull Family Tiger Trail. Online visitors to www.sandiegozoo.org/tigertrail can take a virtual tour of the new home for the Park’s six Sumatran tigers while the exhibit is still under construction. The site offers a look inside the Sambutan Longhouse, a simulated cultural center in the middle of the Tiger Trail area, and the Pondok, an Indonesian hut or

shack where guests can discover how poaching and the illegal trade of animal products are impacting the survival of tigers and other animals that share their habitat. The Safari Park is home to six tigers, four of which are under 3 years old, so the new website also features photos and videos of the earliest stages of a tiger’s life. As visitors scroll down the webpage, they can learn about the power, strength and physical features of this feline predator, from its binocular-like vision to the large canine teeth that help the tiger swiftly kill its prey. There are also videos about the importance of a tiger’s whiskers and large paws. The site includes facts about the cat’s most iconic feature, its stripes; for example, tigers have more than 100 stripes that appear not only on the cat’s fur but on its skin, too. There are fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers in the wild and that number continues to drop. Scientists estimate that this species could become extinct in its native

Sumatra by 2020, unless drastic measures are taken to protect and preserve it. Tigers face many challenges in the wild, from loss of habitat to conflict with humans, but the biggest threat continues to be poaching; tigers are killed and their body parts sold illegally, mostly for folk remedies. People can help protect wild tigers by avoiding products that harm tiger habitat and by refusing to purchase items made from endangered wildlife. The San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy is dedicated to bringing endangered species back from the brink of extinction. The Conservancy makes possible the wildlife conservation efforts (representing both plants and animals) of the San Diego Zoo, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research, and international field programs in more than 35 countries. The important conservation and science work of these entities is supported in part by The Foundation of the Zoological Society of San Diego.

Cozy up to energy savings with insulation With temperatures dropping, odds are your energy bills will be doing just the opposite. In fact, heating (and cooling) account for approximately 54 percent of the energy use in a typical U.S. home, according to the Department of Energy, representing the largest energy expense for most homeowners. One of the most effective ways to manage a home’s climate, comfort and energy costs is by ensuring that it is properly insulated. “Insufficient insulation, particularly in basements and attics, can allow heat to escape, resulting in higher energy bills and a less comfortable indoor environment,” says Don Kosanka, product program director for Owens Corning. “The great thing about insulation is that it is an investment that returns itself. It’s something that homeowners can install themselves and it provides year-round benefits. Not only does insulation keep homes warmer in winter and cooler in summer, it delivers energy and cost savings all year long.” In fact, sealing and insulating - when done by a knowledgeable homeowner or skilled contractor - can help save up to $200 a year in heating and

cooling costs, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In addition to cost savings, the experts at Owens Corning outline three other key benefits of insulating your home: Energy efficiency - The primary purpose of insulation is to control heat flow in a home to save energy on heating and cooling. It’s estimated that homeowners can typically save up to 20 percent of heating and cooling costs by air sealing the home and adding insulation. For optimal energy efficiency, a home should be insulated from the roof down to its foundation. Information about specific areas to insulate in a home is available at www.energy.gov and www.owenscorning.com. Environmental impact - The energy saved by insulating a home also benefits the environment, but it is important to note that not all insulation products have equal environmental impacts. Look for products made from recycled materials, such as Owens Corning’s EcoTouch(R) PINK(R) Fiberglas(TM) Insulation with PureFiber(R) Technology. Enjoyment - Simply put, a wellinsulated home is a more comfortable home. Insulation provides a protective

barrier between the conditioned areas of a home and the outside elements helping to control moisture and temperature. Additionally, fiberglass insulation acts as a sound absorber, reducing the transmission of sound from one room to another or from the outside. An added incentive for homeowners to improve their home’s insulation this year is the 2013 Federal Tax Credit

for Consumer Energy Efficiency. Those who install qualifying insulation products before Dec. 31, can receive a tax credit of 10 percent of the cost, up to $500. For more information on projects, visit www.owenscorning.com. The site also provides access to a list of insulation products that qualify for the 2013 Federal Tax Credit along with the certification statement form.

Feel the difference of a great hair day, every day Every day women are subjected to a multitude of harsh elements that strip the hair of its natural beauty, leaving it limp and lifeless. Dove Hair gives women a great hair day by unlocking a few useful secrets women need to know in order to beat bad hair days. Celebrity hair stylist, Mark Townsend, offers these three easy tips for women to feel the difference of beautiful-looking hair every day. Tip No. 1 - The foundation for a great hair day starts in the shower. Nearly half of women have a bad hair day when their hair feels weighed down. “The foundation to any great hair day starts when women choose a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner that does not weigh hair down,” says Townsend, whose clients include many of today’s leading Hollywood stars. He recommends the improved Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner, a unique formula containing patented technology that does not weigh hair down with excess residue and delivers up to five times smoother hair, in just one wash. More Page 8

information on these products can be found at www.Dove.com. Tip No. 2 - Your blow dryer can be your hair’s best friend. Healthy hair looks shiny because the hair cuticle lays smooth and is able to reflect light. More than 80 percent of women feel more confident on a great hair day compared to a bad one, and one way to keep hair looking beautifully smooth is knowing how to properly use a blow dryer. When blow drying your hair, make sure that you angle the nozzle downward as you dry from the roots to the ends which helps keep cuticles flat and reduces damage. “Pointing the blow dryer directly onto hair with no angle can cause breakage and frizz,” says Townsend. He also warns against applying the hot air from a blow dryer on one area for too long; “it will dry out your hair, making it frizzier.” Tip No. 3 - An effortlessly beautiful hair style. A smooth ponytail is a chic way to beat the heat outside. It will get your hair up and off your shoulders, which can often cause discomfort in

The Ladera Ranch News

hot temperatures. One of Townsend’s biggest style secrets is perfecting a frizz-free ponytail. First, spray a reusable mascara wand with extra hold hairspray. Then, comb the wand gently over the hairline once the ponytail is set, especially in front of the ears, to smooth the little hairs into the style. “I also like to spray

hairspray directly on my hands and run them over the hair that is already pulled back,” says Townsend. “This tip ensures pesky flyaways are smooth, leaving hair looking polished and beautiful.” Dove Hair understands the desire to have beautifully smooth hair.

Jonathan Butler Inspires Crowd on Breakfast with Gary and Kelly Photos by Smooth Jazz Family – Kari Coulter Saddleback College’s radio station KSBR 88.5FM and the City of Mission Viejo presented a Grammy-nominated vocalist and guitarist, Jonathan Butler at the Norman P. Murray Community Center, in Mission Viejo for the Radio on TV taping of “Breakfast with Gary and Kelly”. The three-hour broadcast was recorded in front of a live studio audience of over 500 as well as broadcast live on the radio. During the one-hour interview, Butler told stories of his life and career. He was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa during Apartheid, and started singing and playing acoustic guitar as a child. Understandably, racial segregation and poverty during Apartheid has been the subject of many of his records. His first single was the first by a black artist played by white radio stations in the racially segregated South Africa and earned a Sarie Award, South Africa’s equivalent to the Grammy Awards. His 21 CDs have earned him accolades in R & B, contemporary jazz and gospel genres. Butler played five songs to the delight of the audience; his daughter Jodie accompanied him on a few selected tunes. Other guests appearing on Breakfast with Gary and Kelly were Elissa Oransky Director of Annual Giving for Saddleback College Foundation and Mission Viejo Councilman Frank Ury. Oransky talked about the Saddleback College Foundation and the overwhelming need for funds as they provide a variety of services to students at Saddleback College. Scholarships for deserving students, Emergency Funds for homeless students as well helping veterans adjust to civilian life, all are supported through philanthropic gifts; their upcoming fundraiser is April 12th. Council Member Ury serves as the City of Mission Viejo representative for the Foothill/Eastern Transportation Corridor Agency (TCA) and talked about changes and improvements to the county’s freeways. The Vice President of Research and Development at the KSBR Test Kitchens Tom Riehl was also featured for “Cooking for Kelly” segment giving everyone a good laugh. His recipe this month was creating the perfect Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. Breakfast with Gary and Kelly will welcome Chris Standriing on March 8th. Standring has established himself as a popular mainstay in the contemporary urban jazz genre with infectious R&B driven hits like “Cool Shades” (from 1998’s Velvet), “Hip Sway” (title track from his 2000 album), “Ain’t Mad Atcha” (2003’s Groovalicious), “I Can’t Help Myself” (from 2006’s Soul Express), “Love & Paragraphs” (from 2008’s Love & Paragraphs), and “Oliver’s Twist” (from 2012’s Electric Wonderland). He has pushed his muse into offbeat and ultimately successful ventures like Blue Bolero (whose single “Bossa Blue” was the #1 Billboard Contemporary Jazz Track of the Year) and Send Me Some Snow, an inviting holiday collaboration with award winning pop/folk singer/songwriter Kathrin Shorr. His new effort, “Don’t Talk, Dance!” is easily his funkiest ever and continues his successful search for fresh, new musical paths. Breakfast with Gary and Kelly will is taped at the Norman P. Murray Center in Mission Viejo. For information visit www.KSBR.org. Past guests on “Breakfast with Gary and Kelly” have included Al Jarreau, Debbie Reynolds, Linda Evans, David Benoit, Peter White, Diane Schuur, Keiko Matsui, Rick Braun, Paul Brown, Bill Cantos, Brian Culbertson, Nick Colionne, Spencer Day, and more. Gary and Kelly have conducted numerous remote broadcasts from locations all over Southern California, including the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach and Catalina Island. KSBR is a community service of Saddleback College. The program continues the partnership between Saddleback College and the City of Mission Viejo. For more information on the Radio on TV monthly series and how to become part of the audience for this very special December 14th show, please tune to 88.5 KSBR or visit their website at www.KSBR.org Located in Mission Viejo, Saddleback College provides quality higher education and training to the greater south Orange County community. Having served more than 500,000 students since 1968, Saddleback College offers over 300 degree and certificate programs to help students reach their personal, career, and educational goals.

First-time Riders Discover Friendship, Food and Fun with Metrolink Aracely and Joseph Medina had been thinking for some time about planning a Metrolink adventure but just hadn’t gotten around to it. Then Aracely saw a Facebook post about OCTA’s Lunar New Year party at the Irvine Metrolink station. Every year around early February, OCTA sends hundreds of passengers off to celebrate the Golden Dragon Parade and Festival in Los Angeles after treating them to a party full of traditional Chinese food, fun, goodwill and free Metrolink tickets. “I thought this would be the perfect time to ride Metrolink and experience something different, something new,” said Aracely. And in one day, they enjoyed a different cultural experience, made new friends, discovered a great way to travel and began planning their next adventure. The Medinas arrived at the Irvine station and enjoyed the festivities while waiting for the train to Los Angeles. In between the dragon dance and the traditional Chinese pastries, they introduced themselves to three other passengers and soon decided to spend the day together. At the recommendation of one their new friends, a Hong Kong native, the couple tried a new restaurant. “It was one of the best spots to eat

in Chinatown,” said Aracely. “While we there, a dragon went through the restaurant and the fireworks exploded every 15 minutes. If we hadn’t met our new friends, we never would have experienced this. We had the best time ever!” Aracely and Joseph haven’t stopped talking about their adventure and are

planning more trips on Metrolink, possibly to San Diego for a birthday or 10-year anniversary. What advice do they have for other first-time Metrolink riders? “Don’t be shy!” said Aracely. “Ask for advice from fellow riders. Be willing to try something new. We did and we ended up meeting some great people.” Metrolink is ideal for

weekend adventurers who want to leave their cars home and avoid driving and parking hassles. With the Metrolink Weekend Day Pass, on Saturday or Sunday passengers can ride anywhere Metrolink travels for only $10. For ideas on places to see and things to do, visit octa.net.

Volunteers Needed to count bald Eagles Volunteers are needed to help count bald eagles for the annual winter bald eagle counts in and near the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains! Come join us for the fun and excitement in seeing one of our beautiful national birds! Concurrent Bald Eagle counts are held at Big Bear Lake, Lake Arrowhead, Lake Silverwood, Lake Perris, and Lake Hemet. Volunteers are stationed at vantage points around the lakes, where they watch for bald eagles during a 1-hour period on the count mornings. Volunteers record their observations on maps and data sheets. This is a wonderful opportunity to catch a glimpse of our breath-taking national symbol. Brief orientations are conducted prior to the count so volunteers know where to go and what to do. During the February count, fifteen eagles were seen, including 10 at Big Bear Lake, 1 at Lake Arrowhead, 2 at Silverwood Lake, and 2 at Lake Hemet. Some of the sites have been conducting eagle counts since 1978. The last bald eagle count for this winter is scheduled for Saturday March 8. No experience is needed.

2. Use Coupons. To encourage women to buy their makeup at the grocery stores, cosmetic coupons have been flooding the circulars. For products such as hair color or premium moisturizer, it’s common to find coupons for $5 off or more. Look for store coupons to stack with manufacturer’s coupons and pay next to nothing to look your best. 3. Wait for deals – no, steals! Most grocery stores feature labels like Loreal, Neutrogena, Max Factor, Revlon, Cover Girl, Maybelline, and Almay. You can almost find at least one of these brands on deep discount. Watch for 50% off sales and buy one, get one free offers, and put those coupons to work. My favorite Revlon eyeshadow costs $6.50 at full price but when my store sells for 50% off, I use a $2 coupon and can get it for only $1.25. 4. Become a drugstore diva. While you are there, you can combine store coupons, manufacturers’ coupons, and weekly promotions to save. CVS was offering a promotion in my area for $10 Extra Bucks reward as an automatic rebate with a $20 Cover Girl purchase. I bought three items to qualify and used three $1 off coupons. My final cost for $20 in cosmetics was $7. 5. Don’t keep it if you don’t like it. If cosmetics that you purchase at the drugstore or grocery store don’t meet your quality standards, return them for a refund. Keeping products you will never use is very expensive. Page 16

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property.

If you consult either of these resources, you

should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

Pliny the Younger was poured in half-pints at Selma’s on March 4th and 5th 2014 A rare beer from a Northern California brewery with a nearly cult-like following has ale-lovers across the state lining up for a taste this month. This week in a scene repeated at select breweries and bars throughout California, hundreds were waiting for a single keg of Russian River Brewing Co.’s Pliny the Younger to be tapped in Rancho Santa Margarita and Ladera Ranch .An even hoppier version of the brewery’s beloved but more common double IPA Pliny the Elder, Pliny the Younger is 10.25 percent alcohol triple India pale ale that is released each February. The 2014 version marks the 10th anniversary of the sought-after brew, which changes a bit every year. “It is extremely difficult, time- and space-consuming, and very expensive to make,” states the brewery’s website. “And that is why we don’t make it more often! “Some beer aficionados make the pilgrimage to Russian River’s Santa Rosa headquarters to get their glass at the brewery every year. According to KTLA, Hundreds waited in the rain for the release on Feb. 7.Brewer Vinnie Cilurzo told the local Santa Rosa Press-Democrat that he remained amazed at the annual frenzy the beer had spawned. That means those who can’t make it up to Sonoma County must instead buy a ticket and wait in line at one of the limited locations that are able to obtain kegs. A beer blog called The Full Pint was tracking other locations offering Pliny the Younger in Southern California, as was the Los Angeles News Group’s blog. In Rancho Santa Margarita and Ladera Ranch, beer-lovers marked their calendars to head for Selma’s Chicago Style Pizza & Tap Room at 30461 Avenida De Las Flores, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688 (949) 709-8165 and 27702 Crown Valley Parkway #E Ca.
