did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT LONG BEACH?

  1. Long Beach is a large city located in southern California, USA. According to the U.S. census bureau the population was 492,682.

  2. The LBPost.com features news and opinion from a pool of columnists.

Limelight Long Beach Events (LimelightLB.com) is a comprehensive calendar of events happening in Long Beach.

  3. KJAZZ 88.1 FM (KKJZ) broadcasts from California State University, Long Beach. The station features jazz and blues music exclusively and can also be listened to over the Internet.

  4. Long Beach is the host to a number of long-running music festivals. They include the Bob Marley Reggae Festival (February), the Cajun & Zydeco Festival (May), the El Dia De San Juan Puerto Rican Festival (Salsa music, June) the Aloha Concert Jam (Hawaiian music, June), the Long Beach Jazz Festival (August), the Long Beach Blues Festival (September, since 1980), and the Brazilian Street Carnaval (Brazilian music, September). The Long Beach Sea Festival is held during the summer months (June through August). It features events centered on the ocean and the beach.

  5. Long Beach is part of the Los Angeles DMA radio and television markets. Although a few radio stations have had studios in Long Beach over the years, including the 80's alternative music and later hard rock station KNAC, the only remaining radio stations in Long Beach are the jazz and blues station KKJZ on the Cal State Long Beach campus, and the Christian radio broadcaster KFRN.

During the summer months, low clouds and fog occur frequently, developing overnight and blanketing the area on many mornings. This fog usually clears by the afternoon, and a westerly sea breeze often develops, keeping temperatures mild. Heat and humidity rarely coincide, making heat waves more tolerable than they would be otherwise.

In "Two Can Play That Game" the stage play, Je'Caryous Johnson will hold true to the story that fans fell in love with 16 years ago with some new twists and turns to the plot. When it comes to matters of the heart, Shante Smith (Vivica A. Fox) is so adept at navigating the waters of romance that her girlfriends look to her for relationship advice. But soon, Shante's own relationship becomes the example when her boyfriend, Keith, is caught red-handed stepping out with his co-worker and her archrival, Conny. However, when Shante institutes a plan full of tricks and games to get Keith to act right, he, with the help of his friend Tony, fire back with a quickness, letting Shante know that "Two Can Play That Game". So, whether you call it a "Battle of the Sexes" or "Love and War," "Two Can Play That Game" explores the rules of dating in a hilarious way and displays how men and women relate or don't relate to each other.
