The Scintillating  (?) Sights of Kismet


                                                                By Jeannie


Catch the “Estrogen Corral” at the Out’s Friday Happy Hour as the Xanadus in full force: Marsha, Joanie, Judy, Beverly took the outside corner of the courtyard bar with Collette, Helen, Stephanie, Seabay’s Joanne, Boatel’s Susan & Carol,  joined in the dance floor by Evelyn Minella as they drank and danced, drank and danced, drank…well you get the idea – apparently done till they dropped as, 24 hours later they were still hurting.


Xanadu’s Joanie wins a free beer at Out’s Happy Hour



the July 4th W Lighthouse Block Party Pole Dancing was not the only show on East Lighthouse – reports indicate there is  a couple practice varying positions of the Kama Sutra who are on display on their rooftop for anyone who cares to watch- show time is usually late afternoon I hear - that used to be a quite corner of Kismet!!!



Another far less erotic sight was the Out’s Beautiful Beach Body contest


John Gagliano, Lysie Smith, Vic Liotta,


Winner should have been Johnny Thunder for spirit but he didn’t make the Final Five

Vic’s granddaughter (is that legal?) Mike Walther the MC

Hunky lifeguard guy

And another guy

Err…you’re not on the list


We’ll leave it to the crowd (what’s wrong with this picture)


This guy was willing to take his pants down to win


So did she

This is more like it

Looks like mike‘s gonna do it, too

Are you sure???


Final two


And Judge Vic’s granddaughter, who works at the Out, gets the prize$$$

Kudos to Kismet Karting, like little cat feet at dawn, engines purring our garbage men (boys) do not talk, just move quietly – thank you for the good job and the  consideration.


This from Michelle -Restorative Yoga helps to trigger the Parasympathetic Nervous System helps to lower heart rate, blood pressure, and stimulates the immune and endocrine systems to operate in a healthy manner.  You stay in the postures for a longer time allowing the fascia tissue to soften, leaves you energized in a quiet way, responsible for balancing the body and bringing its response system back into equilibrium (fight or flight response)
