LeVar Burton

"Butterfly in the sky, I can fly twice as high..." Remember those lyrics from your favorite TV show as a kid? Well, it's time to get excited because Smule is teaming up with LeVar Burton, host of "Reading Rainbow," to launch a contest via its Sing! Karaoke app – just in time for back to school season and coinciding with the show's 30th anniversary. You can record an entry of Reading Rainbow's theme song and the winner will get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to record the song in person with LeVar and star in an all new Reading Rainbow App Video Field Trip!

 

CA Beer Festival

What do a giant beer bear, Extreme Pita truck and a Playboy bunny have in common? They'll all be at the California Beer Festival on Saturday, September 7, at Bonelli Park in San Dimas! This lakeside craft beer festival features over 70 craft brews on tap like , plenty of food trucks, live music and bikini bocce ball, along with the chance to meet Giant Bear, the festival's official mascot, and Raquel Pomplun, Playboy Magazine's 2013 Playmate of the Year.
