The owner of 3-Thirty-3 Waterfront restaurant said he will appeal the Newport Beach Planning Commission's denial of his business's request to extend evening patio hours. "We have so many people in the city who want to have this quiet place for dining on the water that having to close at 9:30 (p.m.) is unacceptable," owner Jeff Reuter said Friday. On Thursday, the commission turned down the restaurant's application to extend its patio's daily hours from 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. to 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. City planning commissioners expressed concern that the later hours would increase the volume of nighttime noise from the restaurant, according city spokeswoman Tara Finnigan.

The temperatures are in the mid-70s. Gray May will soon give way to June gloom. The down comforter causes more discomfort than comfort, and your plants need watering every day. It's just about that time -- summer! And not much marks the beginning of summer more than patio dining. Well, that and the accompanying sunburn. The end of school used to be the great marker, but being so many years have passed since my last three-month vacation, I now use that tool of ancient scholars, the sun. The sun is plentiful, both beating down and shining off the water at Ruby's at the end of the Balboa Pier.

I'm a reluctant extrovert. I'm not withdrawn or reticent — after all, I majored in drama for a time in college — but neither am I entirely unfettered in public settings. I like being with people, but I also relish my alone time. During my 37-year career, I was required to give lots of public presentations and, though I became adept at it, I never truly liked it. For me, being in front of an audience is stressful. I suspect that my experience in public relations is nearly universal, and only a narcissist — or dim-bulb — chooses to live life wholly in the public eye. It's unnatural.
