Three, large-framed (4 ft. high) poster-sized family photos of Ritchie Valens went missing from the Ritchie Valens Family Luncheon held in the ballroom of the Best Western Motor Lodge in Clear Lake, IA, on Saturday, Feb. 2.

51376299_10106018002451810_5099519308829032448_nThe framed images are precious heirlooms belonging to Valens family members. The luncheon was part of a larger celebration, The Winter Dance Party, held at the Surf Ballroom, celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Day the Music Died. The missing pieces may be returned to the Surf Ballroom or the Clear Lake police station. No questions asked. For more information, call Randy Norton, 831-566-4528 or the Clear Lake Police Station 641-357-2186 at any time.

About Ritchie Valens:

Rock ‘n’ Roll legend, Ritchie Valens made history as rock music’s first Latino star with popular songs such as “La Bamba” and “Donna.” Credited with being the forefather of the Chicano rock movement, Valens was one of the original pioneers of Rock ’n’ Roll. Since his untimely death at the age of 17, along with Buddy Holly, and “The Big Bopper” in a tragic plane crash, 60 years ago this week, his music has gained in popularity and influenced generations of musicians. Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana are both cited as influenced by Valen’s guitar playing. Artists from Led Zeppelin to Los Lobos have recorded his music.

“Ritchie Valens is a legendary artist that still resonates today,” said Ani Khachoian, Executive Vice President of Licensing & Consumer Products at C3 Entertainment. “We are honored to add this classic brand to the C3 roster and explore new opportunities to share Valens’ legacy with his loyal audience as well as a new generation of fans.”

C3 Entertainment is the exclusive manager of the Ritchie Valens brand, including all licensing and distribution.

See Valorous TV at the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl this Saturday

In The News

Valorous TV, an official sponsor of this Saturday’s Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl, will be in attendance of all scheduled events, in addition to the game. During game day, Dec. 22, Valorous will have an official booth for attendees to visit during the Ulterra Tailgate Outpost from 10:30 am to 2:00 pm (CT). The Tailgate Outpost is a free event open to the public and will feature a full exhibition area that will include interactive displays, current and vintage military hardware, food trucks and more.

Valorous CEO Earl Benjamin said, “We are thrilled to be part of this annual college tradition which also pays tribute to our great Armed Forces.”

ArmedForcesBowl-WebsiteSliderArtworkThe 16th edition of the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl is set for Saturday, Dec. 22, at 2:30 p.m. (CT)/12:30 p.m. (PT). The game is played at Amon G. Carter Stadium on the campus of Texas Christian University and is televised nationally on ESPN.

Played in honor of the Armed Forces of the United States, it is the only collegiate football bowl game that has hosted all three U.S. Military Academy football teams – Air Force (2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2015), Army (2010, 2017) and Navy (2013, 2016).

The Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl has featured the “armed forces” theme since 2006. Patriotic overtones recognizing all five branches of the service are prevalent throughout the game. Past Armed Forces Bowls have included fan-fest adventure areas showcasing armed forces hardware; flyovers; demonstrations by several of the military’s top skydiving teams; custom homes awarded to wounded warriors; on-field induction ceremonies; armed forces bands and honor guards; the annual Great American Patriot Award presented by Armed Forces Insurance; and the annual Armed Forces Merit Award.

This year’s game will feature The Houston Cougars and Army West Point Black Knights. The game has been officially announced as sold out, according to the Armed Forces Bowl website (see their latest blog post about it here). The winner of the game will be the first ever to win the Armed Forces Bowl three times. Last year’s game saw Army West Point score 14 points in the final 18 seconds to defeat San Diego State, 42-35. It was the second straight Armed Forces Bowl decided in the closing seconds. CBSSports.com has ranked it as the third-best bowl game each of the past two years. The football contest is one of 14 bowls produced by ESPN Events.

Make sure to stop by and say hi if you are attending. We’d love to see all of our subscribers representing Uncommon Valor at the bowl!

Chef Jason Santos New Boston Restaurant, Citrus & Salt, Opens November 21st

Chef Jason Santos, In The News

Citrus & Salt Opens Next Week, and There Will Be Dole Whips

Boston Eater November 13, 2017

longtime Back Bay restaurant will be reborn next week with a new name, new menu, and new decor. On Tuesday, November 21, Back Bay Harry’s transforms into Citrus & Salt, a Baja-inspired restaurant with a menu that reflects chef Jason Santos’s enthusiasm for the coastal cuisine of Southern California and Mexico.

Just nine months after debuting the New Orleans-inspired Buttermilk & Bourbon in the former BarLola space, Santos moves west for his newest project. The Mexico- and California-influenced menu at Citrus & Salt (142 Berkeley St.) features items like braised lamb flautas, Jonah crab tostadas, a duck carnitas empanada, beer-battered fish tacos, and ceviche, as Boston Magazinereports. As previously reported, the menu is meant to be a bit analogous to that of Buttermilk & Bourbon. The latter has oyster chowder, for example, while the former will have crab and cactus chowder. Buttermilk & Bourbon has honey-glazed biscuits with smoked cinnamon butter; Citrus & Salt will have agave-glazed blue cornmeal biscuits with smoked canela (aka cinnamon) butter and poblano-pepper jack spread.

Santos has partnered with chef Zen Hyderck, who comes to Citrus & Salt from the Waldorf Astoria in Boca Raton, Florida. Hyderck will oversee the menu, which boasts a signature item from his previous state: Dole Whip appears on the restaurant’s dessert menu. Diners may recognize this pineapple-flavored dessert from Disney, where it’s a cult classic. Citrus & Salt’s version will be served in a pineapple cup, and other desserts include additional sorbet flavors and churros.

On the drinks side, general manager and partner Colleen Hagerty has built a menu that features beer, wine, cocktails, and a selection of margaritas made with fruit purées. Citrus & Salt will offer red and white sangrias, a shareable margarita, and drinks accompanied by paletas, or popsicles. Additionally, there will be nitro cold brew coffee available on tap with chocolate tequila, cinnamon, and whipped cream.

The renovated space — designed by Boston-based Assembly Design Studio — features light accents, including pink tinted walls, wood panels, a succulent wall, and a skeleton mural, with twinkling light fixtures hanging overhead. Not pictured here: the “Garden of Santeria,” a darker dining room in the rear (available for private events) that features lounge furniture, greenery, and blacklight-responsive murals. The restaurant seats 150, with 20 at the main dining room bar.

Citrus & Salt will be open from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m. Sunday through Thursday, with the kitchen open until 10 p.m. On Friday and Saturday, the kitchen will stay open until 11 p.m. while the bar will remain open until 1 a.m. The restaurant will later add lunch and brunch service.Sarah_Storrer_Eater_Citrus_Salt_106

The Three Little Stooges Movie has found its Larry, Moe and Curly.

The comedic family film, from Three Little Stooges Productions in conjunction with C3 Entertainment, which owns the Three Stooges brand, centers on the trio of beloved characters as 12- and 13-year-olds.

Liam Dow has been cast as Little Larry, Gordy De StJeor as Little Moe, and Luke Clark as Little Curly. This is the first leading role in a feature film for all three. Casting Directors Joey Paul Jensen CSA and Niner Parikh (Camp Cook Kids, Soul Surfer, That’s So Raven) conducted a nationwide search to find the trio.

The screenplay for the live-action film was written by Harris Goldberg (Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, The Master of Disguise), with Sean McNamara (Even Stevens, Spare Parts, Soul Surfer) eyed to direct. International sales agent The Exchange has signed on for foreign sales of the film, which is set to go into production in the fall.

In addition, the production team has launched a Reg CF campaign through First Democracy VC’s equity crowdfunding portal, which was formed through a partnership between MicroVentures and Indiegogo. Funds from the campaign, which is set to close later this summer, will be used to fund part of the production.

The Three Stooges have starred in more than 200 film shorts, feature films, TV and stage shows. The new movie follows C3 Entertainment’s 2012 film The Three Stooges Movie, from the Farrelly brothers and starring Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and Chris Diamantopoulos as the Stooges.

Dow, managed by Mark Robert, played Steve in the DreamWorks’ web series OMG! Just Jacque and will appear in the upcoming teen comedy The Perfect Night.

De StJeor has appeared in numerous commercials, music videos, TV and films as a break-dancer, actor and musician. He is repped by The Savage Agency.

Clark plays Kyle in the Jennifer Arnold (Dear White People) comedy movie Fat Camp and is repped by Clear Talent Group.

C3’s Earl Benjamin and Robert Benjamin will executive produce with The Exchange CEO Brian O’Shea.

“Keeping Three Stooges legacy alive for new generations is vital for the franchise,” said Benjamin, CEO of C3. “We are excited to bring The Three Little Stooges to life to entertain kids, families and our global fan base.”
