Diva Minds Want to Know…

1. Where do you like to flirt?

I like flirting at my shows … but I guess in general, I’m a very
flirtatious individual, however, I’m terrible at “breaking the ice” …
that’s why I love women who aren’t afraid to “break the ice” and approach me … I’ll take care of the rest!

2. Where’s your favorite table for two?

Hmm, I LOVE FOOD! But my Slovak ethnicity drew me to a place called “Old
World” out here in HB. Ethnic foods like goulash, potato pancakes, brats,
saurkraut and mashed potatoes. Plus they have good ethnic beers on tap!
(Topvar) However, depending on budget, I found a great website
(www.letseatoc.com) that breaks it down by area or cuisine.

3. Where should we stay when we visit (besides your place)?

I’ll pretend I didn’t read what’s in parenthesis … but seriously,
depending on your budget, you can stay at a HB hostel for about
$21-$41/day to a Best Western ranging $99-$309/day or treat yourself to a
resort style hotel at the Hyatt Regency Beach Resort & Spa ranging $250
and above. All of these are walking distance to the beach! Another great
site to check out is www.surfcityusa.com.

4. What quality do you find irresistible in a woman?

hmm…I’m a sucker for pretty eyes and nice smiles…I like women that are confident (not cocky) but I admire independence… I guess girls that
are just down to earth, funny,easy going and lay back… in one word
“elegant” … so Charlize Theron, if you’re reading this … “hi”

5. Where can we find you on a free Sunday afternoon? Just roll over?

The beach sometimes, but other times my friends and I do an occasional
“Sunday Funday” where we’ll head downtown by the pier and drink cocktails
and barhop on various patios all day/night … Anybody wanna join us???

6. What do you love most about your city (besides our arrival)?

Weather! People talk about how we don’t have 4 seasons out here … I say
“yeah” I love it! I grew up in Pennsylvania, so I’m used to 4 seasons …
however, now I have beautiful weather year round and I can have my 4
seasons within driving distance (lol).

7. What should we bring when we visit your town? What should we leave with?

Credit cards and credit cards.

8. What do we absolutely have to see while we’re there?

That’s easy … One of my performances! (how ’bout that for a plug!) On
the other hand, if you have time, take a drive up/down the PCH (Hwy 1)
… there are areas where the view is just breath-taking!

9. Any areas of town we should avoid?

Ugh! All the highways between 3pm-7pm on the weekdays!

10. Any local secrets you want to share?

Honestly, I’m still fairly new to the area, but I know the weather is
fabulous and the unemployment is less than 3% … not really secrets … I guess if ya want secrets, come to one of my shows … I tend to let a couple slip up on stage … makes it more fun/personal!
