Transcript 22 MONTROSE VOICE/FEBRUARY 27. 1987 Grab Your Partner and Get Ready for Mardi Gras Around Town by Elroy Forbes Montrose Voice Social Director □ Good News The Brazos River Bottom was packed Tuesday night. Country and Western dance fans from The Ranch, BRB, and some I recognized from old Bears filled the dance floor and reviewing areas around the bar. Six couples made the finals. Prizes were awarded from Tom's Back Pocket, TNT Shirts, The Pot Pie, I.W. Marks, Puppies Boot Parlor, TGRA, Baba Yega, The Fitness Exchange, Blue Iris Florist, Eurotan, JRs, The Mining Co., Heaven, The Galleon, and The Barn. First place country and western dance contest winners, June Archibald and David Kiser □ Mardi Gras Time This Saturday there will be three parades in Galveston. At noon, the Truckers Parade will go down the Seawall with floats and decorated trucks as they celebrate the big island event. At 3:00 p.m., the campy Hou-Dah Parade, a take off on the famous California New Year's Day Do Dah Parade, will feature briefcase drill teams from many Houston corporations as well as campy entries competing for cash donationnof $1000, $500 and $200 to their favorite charities. At night, by torchlight, is the big blow out and the long parade that will wander through the historic Strand District. This is the parade everyone talks about. If you are like me and just a little shy about driving to Galveston, The Krewe of Hydra has buses leaving The Rip- cord at noon on Saturday, returning to Houston by 10:00 p.m. The estimated time of return is in time for Chutes Customer Contest and the big doings with Drummer magazine. The cost of the Mardi Gras trip is $20 before Saturday and $25 the day of the big party. Call The Ripcord or Timeless Taffeta for details. d Out and About I have to admit that Go Country Day at Mary's was not only a pleasant, but was a relaxing experiene. I know that is not characteristic of Mary's but that's how it all worked. It was fun to pay a visit the other night to find my favorite doorman, Fannie, was working and having a good time. Mary's is doing a Pardi Gras (pronounced Party Gras) weekend with costume awards after 11:00 p.m. Saturday night. All of these activities are being pumped into their new April Fool event—The Miss Vacant Lot title. Booths are available to organizations and businesses such as Maria's: She can read neither English nor Spanish but she can read beads. No telling what they have in mind for Pickles. At Neartown Association's meeting, Channel 2 newsmen showed up to check into president Ron Rod rick's fight with City Hall over the recent lower Westheimer fires. Petitions are being circulated to demand municipal action on the many promises made to clean up the vacant buildings. Four area leaders on the Needy Persons Help programs also spoke at the meeting held at Rering Memorial Methodis Church. Popular Tom Horan has invited many of our community groups and individuals to come to the first ever "indoor" Mardi Gras parade inside the lobby of the Wyndham Hotel Greenspoint, 12400 Greenspoint Drive on March 3 at 7:00p.m. The festivities will include bands, floats, clows and more. Call Tom at 875-2222. The Annual Bering Memorial Mardi Gras Pancake Festival begins Saturday at 7:00 a.m. All you can eat for $4. It will be in the basement of the Main Build- 1987 treasurer of the Gi Montrose Business Guild is Jim Spence A combined cash prize from the BRB and The Ranch reminded everyone that there are two C&W dance bars in Houston. Winners were: first place, David Kiser and June Archibald from BRB: second, Carol Martinez and Evie Dne Ranieri from The Ranch; third, Andrew Bester- man and Brent Leefgreen from the BRB. These three couples will represent Houston in the Texas finals starting March 22 in Ft. Worth's 651 Club. The state contest continues in Austin on April 5 at Snuffy's; April 19 at the Silver Dollar in San Antonio and ends here in Houston at the BRB May 3. While I was in Ft. Worth last weekend, I visited the 651 Club. The new facility is very impressive and spacious. Announcements proclaimed their upcoming C&W contest. I tell you, they really had some serious dancers. All of our people need our support in this competition. Congratulations and best wishes to all!

Lawrence Welk, the Acid Rocker? LOS ANGELES (UPI)—Fans expecting the bubbly sounds of I_awrence Welk's polkas were instead confronted by a raucous punk-rock soundtrack after a mix-up at a compact disc plant. The label for Welk's "World's Greatest Polkas" was accidentally placed on about 10,000 compact discs ofthe soundtrack of the film "Sid and Nancy," triggering a minor uproar among the bandleader's fans. Polka fans were unexpectedly treated to such songs as "Love Kills" and Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols singing a violent parody of Frank Sinatra's "My Way," said Bernice McGeehan, spokeswoman for Welk Enterprises, the bandleader's record company. "It was a big shock to the Welk people who bought that particular CD and we are now in the process of recalling all of them," McGeehan said. Welk's office began receiving complaints almost immediately after the CD hit the stores a few days ago. "The first thing that happened was a very nice lady from West Covina called, and she was more astounded than anything else," McGeehan said. "She took it to her polka club party, and they were going to play it for a dance party. She called and said the music was loud and screaming and she couldn't repeat the language she heard on the CD." &S%
