On 7/11, the annual mooning of the Amtrak took place at Mugs Away Saloon. Apparently it might also be the very last—the city of Laguna Niguel, along with the OC Sheriff's Department and the Anaheim Police Dept. greatly discouraged participation this year because of the costs. Compared to the thousands of peaceful mooners at last year's event, less than 200 participants were at Mugs Away this year.
It's as cute as it sounds. Follow photographer Keith May as he discovered the First Annual Surfin' Paw Dog Jam at Huntington Beach's Dog Beach on 7/11. The event benefitted the OCSPCA (www.orangecountyspca.org) and a red carpet event was held later at the Waterfront Hilton.
Brought to you by Whitelite productions, "Made You Look" took place at Detroit Bar on 7/11. The night featured "The Fightt" (with DJs Mr. White vs. James Monrose), No MSG and Colossal KNXX. Suhweeeeeeeeeet.
