In 1964, a group of Fullerton residents decided it was time to showcase their local artists and cultural amenities, and for one night, the public was invited free to exhibitions scattered around the city. "A Night in Fullerton" turned out to be more than a one-night stand. It has become firmly rooted as the thing to do on the last Friday of every April, an event that draws between 10,000 and 15,000 people. Tonight will be the 37th edition.

Their aim was as obvious as the red hats planted squarely on their heads: Let the good times roll. The women of the Red Hat Society streamed into Ventura on Saturday by car and by train.

But sometimes when heading out for an evening with friends I need a handy way to carry my cell phone, checkbook, planner and wallet. I wouldn't be caught dead with a fanny pack, and backpacks seem stale.
