The HBA's March 6 dinner is shaping up to be a gala night and
for one lucky person it will be FREE, to boot! You could be that lucky person, who will be randomly
selected from those attending our first event of the year, our first "De Barranda" Bar Review, later
at Andrei's in Irvine (see here for details). In addition to a chance to win a free "in" to the hottest
ticket in town this spring, it will allow us all to get a head start in
networking for the new year. See
The next big ticket event of the year after the annual dinner
will be our May MCLE trip to the hide-away beach resort town of
Huatulco over Memorial Weekend.
Everyone knows about Acapulco, and a few connoisseurs will know about Ixtapa
and Zihuatanejo, but Southern Mexico, which has some of the best beaches in
Mexico, still has some hidden treasures.
Beautiful and largely unspoiled, Huatulco was virtually unknown, except
to the local Zapotec people, until recent years but now it has a marina and a
gold course. See here for details.
As usual, we convey various announcements for
your consideration of things we thought might be of interest. Enjoy!
Please join us for this year's first
