LAKEPORT – Cafe Victoria held another in its ongoing series of musical and poetry performances on Dec. 1.


Host Phil Mathewson, performed some original tunes and accompanied other performers on the house piano. Magician Philip Martin did card tricks and local author Alethea Eason read from her children’s science fiction book, “Hungry.”


Guitar players and singers Erv Howell and Frank Vastano came all the way from Lucerne to entertain.


Dick Flowers didn’t need any musical accompaniment as he sang a capella for the appreciative audience.


Karen Priest of the Clear Lake Park Symphony Orchestra sang some of her original tunes while strumming the guitar.


Sue Ricci (Karaoke Sue) and Mathewson sang some Christmas songs to celebrate the season.


Lorna Sue Sides, founder of the Poetry Interlude, recited some of her favorite poems.


There was a full house for this year’s last open mic and nobody wanted it to end.


It will be back next year, same time – 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. – and same day, the first Saturday of the month.
