The Devil Dogs are on their way to Newport Beach. The city of Newport Beach and the 1st Battalion, 1st Marines Adoption Committee are set to welcome U.S. Marines from Camp Pendleton to Thursday's Mess Night. The black-tie dinner, which will be held at the Balboa Bay Club & Resort, is a tradition for Marines who are preparing to serve in a combat situation. "It's like a salute to the warrior," Arches owner Dan Marcheano said. Last October, about 180 Marines visited Newport for Mess Night before being deployed to Iraq.

In a setting permeated by the thick scent of cigar smoke, a seemingly endless supply of red wine, and the kinds of jokes men tell when their wives are away, about $40,000 was raised Friday on behalf of a scholarship fund benefiting Newport-Mesa students. The scene Friday was the Balboa Bay Club & Resort's 11th annual Gentlemen's Smoker and Lobster Clambake. Dieter Hissin, the resort's food and beverage director, said 135 men -- women were off the guest list that night -- came to fire up a supply of 3,500 cigars, chow down on lobster and filet mignon, and throw back about 100 different kinds of liquors.

There are two general rules about impressions: most people do them from time to time, and most of them are atrocious. I learned the latter the hard way; in high school, I repeatedly tried to entertain friends with my Woody Allen impersonation, then stopped when I realized no one ever laughed at it. Still, just as some people are blessed with the ability to walk a tightrope or hurl a fastball, some people are born impersonators. Witness Bethany Owen, a Huntington Beach resident who has been doing impressions on the road for decades and has a show coming up Tuesday at the Balboa Bay Club & Resort in Newport Beach.

Bethany Owen puts on many faces during her stage show. The impersonator has a repertoire ranging from Britney Spears and Alanis Morissette to Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton, and she’s constantly adding new impressions to her act. When she takes the stage tonight at the Huntington Beach Elks Lodge, though, she’ll be evoking a part of herself as well. Owen, who has toured internationally and headlined in Las Vegas, graduated from Edison High School in the early 1970s.

Now that their joint appearance at Saddleback Church is in the rear-view mirror, one thing is clear to me: The difference in the candidates’ ages — which some people equate with experience — will become a defining issue in the 2008 presidential election. On the one hand, you have Sen. John McCain, who turned 72 Friday. He was born long before the computer revolution. That is troubling to younger voters. On the other hand, you have Sen. Barack Obama, who recently turned 47. That is equally troubling to older voters.

After the triple punch of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve, many Newport-Mesa residents have likely exhausted their budget for wine and merriment. But for those whose thirst now exceeds their wallets, the Five Crowns restaurant is here to help. The Corona del Mar English-style institution offers a special Monday night wine menu year-round, featuring wines at a 20% to 40% discounted price. Some of the bottles arrived at Five Crowns with a missing or damaged label; others were dropped from the main wine list due to diminishing supply or were surplus bottles from special wine events.

A recent state legislation will help the city check if businesses in Huntington Beach are complying with the city's business license tax. The legislation paves the way for the city to access information provided on an individual's state income tax return and compare it with their records to find businesses that are not paying their annual taxes. Select city staff would have access to the state file that would match Huntington Beach businesses with the city's business license database, city Fiscal Services Manager Jim Slobojan said.

Newport Beach once again showed its mettle Thursday night. At the Balboa Bay Club, many of the city's movers and shakers and seemingly all of its former Marines celebrated a Marine Corps mess night dinner with members of Camp Pendleton's 1st Battalion, 1st Marines -- also known as the First of the First. The city adopted the battalion a year ago, and Thursday's was the second mess night the city has held. Once again, the boisterous event was a huge success, as has been the city's entire dealings with the battalion, which is scheduled to return to the Middle East in January to serve near Fallouja, Iraq.
