Tonight is the New England Patriot’s Game at 830 pm on NBC at Gillete Stadium. Everyone will be watching and give your vote on who will win in the comment thread below.

Today the final curtain in the Weirs Beach Drive in closes. It opened 69 years ago and only operated in the summer months. Many classic movies have shown here. It is sad to see it go. It was right next to the Italian Faro and Thurston’s Marina on Weirs Blvd. This has been rumored for a couple years. Well, it was sold as the owner was ready to retire and the value of the land exceeded the business. What will happen is it will be turned into condominiums. Thy showed movies in separate screens while people can watch in their cars or sit out side their car with chairs they take along, well you can even watch two movies at once. Popcorn was served. Even people from Concord and Nottingham drove to see its last showing. The movie showing is Hitman’s Body Guard and Baby Driver. This iconic staple will be missed. But a fact, Drive-ins have been rapidly declining.

 

Name what movie you have seen here in the comments below.

 

Pier 19 in Weirs closes today including gas. FAREWELL SUMMER 2017. It was a great one!

Here is a Story of the Boston Comic Con that recently happened. It was held in the Boston Convention Center near East Boston. It was sooo busy that police had to direct traffic and direct people to parking spaces. People came there dressed as characters, like Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad (I saw that costume a lot), Doctor Octopus from Spider-man 2, Joker, Deadpool, Star Wars characters, Spider-man etc etc. I Forgot to dress up as I rushed to get there for parking.

 

The Comic Con featured celebrities to sign their auto graphs and have selfies with.  Like Jim Cummings who has played many Disney characters, Billy West who played Stimpy on Ren and Stimpy and was in Futurama, Anthony Daniels who was 3CPO and they had a 3CPO Robot in his booth. On my Facebook I made a live video of it. They had much of the Rocky Horror Picture show cast there. Like they had Barry Bostwick who played Brad the hero, Susan Sarandon who played Janet Weiss, Patricia Quinn who played Magenta. Tim Curry (Who played Frank N Furter in the movie, as well as Pennywise the Clown, Long John Silver from Muppet Treasure Island and villains in Peter Pan and the Pirates, Darkwing Duck, Mighty Ducks, The Mask animated series etc) was there but in a wheel chair as he had a stroke. It cost me $120 to have a photo opp w him and they printed a photo of him. It cost more to have a photo opp of the Whole Rocky Horror Picture show cast. In addition they had Stan Lee’s last East Coast appearance and people sign his auto graphs. A friend of mine had her son sign his autograph. Sad how I never got that chance. OH, they had Star Wars moving displays that were popular. They had displays of merchandise. Of Course they had to raise the prices due to the event and the businesses splitting costs as ya have to make more than breaking even in business. In addition the event was so jammed packed it was bottle necking.

 

the Manchester NH Granite State Comic Con is Sept 15 to 17  here http://www.granitecon.com/ and it’s at Radisson Inn. It’s a smaller version of the Comic Con I covered.

 

Pictures below are of the Event

 

 

Today is Laconia’s 125 Celebration held in downtown. Next year Laconia will turn 125, next Tuesday will be the Passenger Station’s 125th Anniversary but I guess they decided to hold it the weekend closest to it. In downtown where it was held near the bank and Train Station.  They had 50 minute train rides. There were people dressed as train conductors. I wonder why they don’t have a Polar Express named one hahaa. They had a kids area for kids to ride a kiddie train around in a circle near Burrito Me. They had a petting Zoo of lamb. There were vendors selling wares like Handmade crafts, including Halloween ones. The Laconia Eatery had a pig roast. They had musicians sing in a stage. Near the Train Station was newspaper clippings of this past Tuesday’s article of the event coming up on this stand as well as 125 balloons near it and a list of sponsors and people working the event signing. They even had someone from the Sea Shore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport Maine come here to give a history. The Library even had advertised this. Laconia does a great job in dealing w our history. The Pumpkin Festival is this coming October 14!! Bank of NH always sponsors in these events. I will cover that event as well! But today’s event was a significant event and the closed off parts of the streets. They had great weather for it.

 

Each Advertiser I mention has their own special events that draws in more customers and they do a great job at that too. Here is a list of of events for each for the rest of the 2017 season. Each has created their own niche and customer base and with everything else they have done a great job with that.

 

PARADISE BEACH CLUB

Paradise Beach Club is a beach themed Bar in the Weirs Beach that hosts gigs that draws in traffic every Friday and Saturday. Much of it is modeled after the famed Key West Florida, in fact much of the staff loves to visit there. A very popular one is Tigerlilly. They do have a cover for bands. They have VIP Tables and seats and that can be used for Bachelorette parties. It draws in many people who love to go boating. They have an outdoor patio. They serve awesome Prime Rib. They draw in tons of business during Bike week and host events for it every day during it. I enjoy going there to watch the bands and meet up with friends. In addition I enjoy promoting their events and love being an asset to the owners business. The owners are Brett and Krista Loring. They are great and kind people. The bartenders are friendly and serve fast. They are open from first weekend of May to Saturday before Halloween or Halloween Saturday if Halloween falls on Saturday. I get really sad when it’s closed for the season! In addition, I have made many friends here.

They have merchandise of the place right in the front lobby (as shown in pics below) , so come and get your Naswa gear! They have a beach bar right along the sand and lake called the NazBar that opened in the early 1980s. They have a menu where they serve great food, tropical drinks and martinis and drinks! The drink and food specials change every day. A pic shows a sample. its Margaritta Mondays they have, Taco Tuesday, Whiskey Wensday and Half off Burger & Brew Night Thursdays. The water can light up color at night (As shown in one of my pics). Many boaters and Jetskiers like me can ride around there and dock our boat to get a nice drink, get our toes in the sand and or meet up with friends. It can get busy. A lot of friends and or couples and families come together to enjoy this atmosphere. The friendly and smiley bartenders and waitresses work hard to. They host many events that attract customers at the Nazbar. For Example Every August they host 80s weekend and the staff there dresses up 80s style as do guests. In addition they have gigs on the weekends. For Bike Week it gets filled. They hold Bikini Contests there. They held Bike Weeks 94th Anniversary there during Bike week and there was a Cake Cutting Ceremony. Why as a matter of fact the Naswa was named the Hotel of Bike Week. Its a great spot for Bike week fun too! The Naswa sponsors many places & even worked the Radio Station arond Bike week. In addition, They had the Peter Makris Walk Run. Cindy Makris is the owner and she has done a good job as has Kara Chase who is in charge of the Marketing. I am glad to advertise with the Naswa and I learned of many events in the process that I in the end liked and those events grew on me, all the more to be thankful!  They are open from Memorial Day weekend to Columbus Day Weekend.
