Bay Area Hall of Fame DJ, Laurie Roberts will be with me from 12:00pm - 2:00pm too! We have fun beer and heart shaped Mardi Gras beads available to all who donate towards the Southwestern Heart Transplant Fund in honor of Jim Koenig. We will also have uber cool, KPIG temporary tattoos and some KPIG buttons. Get there early to get the coolest stuff! I will also be there on Sunday for the Fermentation Festival.

Hi All, Jim is recovering well. His first two biopsies have shown no sign of rejection at all! We really appreciate your support and love. As Jim gains strength, I am sure he will be able to interact with many of you by phone, email, text or hopefully soon in person. Cards can be sent to the Santa Cruz home and we will get them over to Jim. You can also post here and obviously on Facebook. Thanks again! Alice
