Fellow Lucyfans,

Viv's Chairs

If you are visiting a newsstand this week, you might want to pick up a copy of the December issue of Metropolitan Home magazine (photo, left). In an article that showcases the home of San Francisco designer Jay Jeffers, it is mentioned that two of his chairs were once owned by Vivian Vance. They are matching Chinese Chippendale-style chairs in original 1940s fabric and finish.

We were once told that Viv owned the arm chair from the original I Love Lucy Ricardo apartment -- but, no, that chair is not one of the pair owned by Jeffers...

Lucie Goes Hollywood

As we mentioned a few weeks ago, Lucie Arnaz will entertain at Hollywood's famous Cinegrill nightclub the week of November 9-13. If you missed her recent Sold Out performaces at the Orange County Performing Arts Center, you will want to catch her show here -- in her own home town! These are, in fact, Lucie's first concerts in Los Angeles in many years!

The Cinegrill is located in the Roosevelt Hotel, at 7000 Hollywood Boulevard, in the heart of Hollywood. For ticket information, call (323) 769-7269, (866) 468-3399, or visit the Cinegrill web site at:

Lucie will also lend her vocal talents to "The Best is Yet to Come," an all-star salute to the music of Cy Coleman. The show, which benefits Stage, too and the Actors Fund of America, is scheduled for Saturday, November 6, at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex in Los Angeles. Among the other stars scheduled to appear are Debbie Allen, Carole Cook, Tyne Daly, Michele Lee, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Karen Morrow, Charlotte Rae, Sally Struthers, Patrick Wilson, and many more...

For ticket information, call (323) 933-9244 x35 or x54, or visit the Actors Fund web site at:

Have a great week everybody!
