L'Shana Tova

There was a second celebration when a couple was celebrating their 50th Anniversary. With 50 years of togetherness, happiness, and good health, their special occasion occurred on the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashanah. Their daughter spared no expense. Unorthodox Rabbi Jacob, from Paris, France was the surprise guest. We gathered background information from their daughter including the vow that the wife and husband granted each other 25 wishes, with the wife getting 24, and one, maybe, for the husband. Rabbi Jacob gave the husband and wife top hats with their names inscribed in Hebrew.

The Fast Lane in Palo Alto

Undercover cop Sonny Crockett serves jello shots

The 80's TV Show Miami Vice was known for its illicit drugs, Ferraris, and double-breasted satin suits. Undercover cop Sonny Crockett, wearing his "cool watermelon sunglasses" was a fixture at the hip nightclubs and on the mean streets of Miami. He and his partner busted Columbian drug lords and assorted bad guys. A Sonny Crockett lookalike mingled served jello shots and looked for suspicious party crashers. The partygoers were in safe hands- his Dade County badge and handcuffs were prominently displayed. Celebrity Gems arranges a Sonny Crockett/Don Johnson lookalike in Palo Alto, San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland, Walnut Creek, and San Ramon.

Country Hoe Down in Union City

The Masonic Home in Union City had an old-fashioned country fair and barbeque for their Harvest Festival and tour of their new facility-Acacia Creek. As a replica to the huge Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton,  there was Country and Western and Bluegrass music, a petting zoo, and games of chance including "Flip the Frog" and the ring bottle toss. Enjoy ice-cream and custard? Rita's Custard and Ice-Cream served their delectable goodies from their brightly decorated food truck.
