         Credit for the name "News Geezers" goes to the late, great Bob Long.
        If you have questions or would like to be on the mailing list - and perhaps attend one of our lunches - please contact Bob Tarlau through the form you will find by clicking on the "Contact" tab.  Thanks and cheers!   Bob

    Our next News Geezers lunch is coming up on this Saturday (July 29) - starting at noon.

     We will feature Dave Lopez... who (last month) marked 40 years at KCBS Channel 2 (still KNXT when he started) - here in Los Angeles.

    It's an amazing run - by one of the sharpest television journalists anywhere.

    Please read about Dave on KCBS' website at:


     Our lunch venue continues to be Victorios in North Hollywood... at 10901 Victory Blvd.   Click here to view the Google Map.  

     You can RSVP now - by sending an e-mail to:bob@tarlau.com.  The RSVP deadline was Fri Jul 21... but we still have a few seats available.  So please RSVP if you haven't already.

     Videos and stills are now online from our Sat May 6 lunch.   You will find photos to the left... along with links to others.  Thanks to Ross Kestin for the additional photos.

      At the May 6 lunch:  George Lewis shared memories of Cecilia Alvear, his long time partner and veteran television journalist.   Cecilia succumbed in April, after a long fight with breast cancer.   

   In addition, at our most recent News Geezers lunch:

   Ivor Davis talked about his book:  "The Beatles and Me on Tour."   Published in 2014, it's on sale on Amazon in hardback, paperback and Kindle at this link: 

     After our Sat Jul 29 lunch - there will be one more in 2017... and that's planned for Sat Oct 28.
