Now what are you going to do with the rest of your summer? The Carp-O-Rama Family Fishing Event scheduled for July 14 at Lake Maloney State Recreation Area south of North Platte, Neb., has been canceled because of a recent carp die-off . . . . On a lighter note, you can’t kill salsa. The annual Oxnard Salsa Festival is still a go, July 28-29 in downtown Oxnard. Parking and admission are free, but the Salsa Tasting Tent costs $5. Still, a great bargain for a traditional fun weekend. Info, click here . . . . Part of the July celebration, the 5th Annual Oxnard Salsa Dash, will be held July 21. Register here . . . . The Beerfest & Bluegrass Festival returns to Tahoe's Northstar Resort on July 14, with bluegrass bands and more than 30 local and regional breweries. Tickets are $38 at the door. Info here  . . . . On the fashion front, Crystals at CityCenter in Vegas presents a display of archive gowns worn by celebrities over the past 12 years. Featured ensembles include a Christina Aguilera mini-dress, along with items worn by Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Charlize Theron and Heidi Klum. The exhibit runs through Aug. 3. Info: crystalsatcitycenter.com .... Hermosa Beach’s Tomorrows Bad Seeds plays Hard Rock Cafe on the Strip on Oct. 3.  Tickets are $14 and can be purchased at the Hard Rock Cafe Box Office or at ticketweb.com . . . . Starting Aug. 4, and running for three straight Sundays, nearly seven miles of New York City’s streets will be closed off to traffic and turned over to walkers and cyclists. The annual Summer Streets event takes place from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day .... Travel quote of the day: “The slower we move the faster we die.” (George Clooney as Ryan Bingham in “Up in the Air”)
