A Fabulous Annual Desert Tradition

      Biba Roesch’s Birthday Party







By Stanley Paul


This year’s festivities didn’t disappoint.  The weather was a glorious March evening in Palm Springs. Once again the setting was the picturesque Casa Verde, a 1940’s Spanish Colonial bungalow, owned by Michael Martinez and rented seasonally by Biba.

Chicago was well represented again this year. Guests included: Bill and Vicki Hood, Colin Fisher, John Cannon, Cary Frank, Linda Heister, Michelle Roesch, Nancy and Grant Lindsay, Mary Ann Alexander, Tracy Kupferberg, Bruce Dunlop, Spiro Petros, Jerry Sanfillippo, Pat and Larry Booth, Doris and Cecil Hart, Patience Eckler and Monty Montague and the author.
