A Valentine’s Tribute to Johnny Carson

Monday, February 14th, 2005

Please join us MONDAY at the Hollywood Salon:– Monday, February 14th, 2005 — The February Salon falls on Valentine’s Day this year, so we thought it would be a good time to pay tribute to our old friend and trail-blazing Nebraska-to-Hollywood success story, Johnny Carson.  You are invited to attend a very special evening on Monday, February 14th: A Nebraska Valentine to Johnny Carson.  We’ll honor Johnny with a video montage of his life, from Norfolk, Nebraska to UN-L to his long reign as the King of Late-Night. There’ll be special valentine treats and more surprises, so we hope you can make it.  Because it’s Valentine’s Day, we’re going to start a little earlier, and keep things a little shorter.  The normal Salon format will be different:  doors opening at 7pm, then we’ll start right at 7:30 with our half-hour tribute.  Those with hot dates can stop by for the tribute and still make your dinner reservations — those who want to hang out longer will be treated to a retrospective of Johnny Carson’s career highlights and more socializing with the group.  There will be news of Johnny’s bequest to the UN-L Theatre Department, plus a card for you to sign that will be delivered to his family.  Don’t miss out on a chance to say goodbye to a Nebraska Hollywood Legend.
