It’s the first day of the new month, so don’t forget to flip your calendars. And when you check off each day, remember to come to Patch each morning to find out what’s happening in Long Beach. Here’s what going in the city Tuesday:
1. The City Council will meet at 7 p.m. at City Hall. This is the first meeting of the month, when the council holds a Good & Welfare session that affords residents the opportunity to voice any government-related compliments, complaints or concerns.
2. You know you’re up for raising funds while indulging some delicious food, right? Head over to Nick’s Tuscan Grill on East Park Avenue at 5:30 p.m. when the group Friends of the Long Beach Library will host a tasting called “A Taste of Long Beach." The proceeds will benefit the library.
3. While that fundraiser is in full swing, a Youth Advisory Board will meet at the library at 7 p.m. This meeting lets students in grades five and above to talk about youth programming. Make sure you register for this meeting.
4. Long Beach radio personality Halftime Howie will have a variety of guests on his show “Broadcasting on the Beach” from 8 to 9 p.m. on AM 1240 WGBB. They include Long Beach historian Douglas Sheer, Steve Vaccaro of Long Beach Reach, cast members from a Long Beach High School musical, and Walter Searcy, the radio show’s videographer, and James Hodge, a trustee at the Martin Luther King Center, who will both give a recap on Black History Month.
5.
