Ubiquitous KEYT-TV reporter John Palminteri, who has worked for the TV Hill ABC affiliate since 1988, celebrated this 67th birthday with a socially gridlocked bash with 70 friends at the events locale The Bungalow, owned by John Savage on De La Vina Street.

Hosted by Tara Zanecki, Crystal Iverson, Adam McKaig, Rick Oshay and Teresa Kuskey libations were provided by Gretchen Lieff, Fred Brander, Cutler Artisanal Spirits and Island Brewing of Carpinteria, with food by Creative Services Catering.

Teresa’s La Boheme Dancers provided the gloriously camp entertainment while award-winning DJ Darla Bea spun the discs, with guitarist Maitland Ward and actress Tiffany Story doing a parody of past hits focusing on John’s trademark moustache.

Among those feting the birthday boy were Fritz and Gretchen Olenberger, Oscar Gutierrez, Joey Souza, Drew Wakefield, Erik Davis, Mark Whitehurst and Kerry Methner.
