Old City Life Celebrates its 7th Year with “We Got It Covered”

Old City Life Magazine is entering its seventh year of publishing. To mark this momentous occasion, they are hosting a celebration, Old City Lifeappropriately named “We Got It Covered”, to honor all the men, women and even chickens that have graced the front cover. The magazine has printed over 50 issues and has immortalized more than 100 of the area’s most influential, and at times notorious, local celebrities.

The event will be held on January 25 at the 233 West King Art Gallery at 5:30pm. Many of the past Covergirls and guys will be present to autograph copies that will be placed in the Magazine’s archives. Attendees will enjoy hors d’oeuvres from Culinary Outfitters, along with a wine tasting and live entertainment. Parking is ample in the adjoining lots.

“I can’t believe it has been six years,” said Yvette Monell Richardson, the magazine’s publisher. “It has gone by so quickly. As I have taken the time to go back over each cover, I realize how many people I have met and how many of them have had a direct impact on me personally. This event is truly a wonderful way to celebrate the past and get ready for an amazing future.”

The magazine covers will be on display until the end of January. Additional copies are available for sale for those who missed an issue or want to update their collection.

This photograph was taken on the second day the lions were put back. The first day, an officer ordered the model to climb down and was forced to obtain a permit to do the shoot.

On The Cover: “Do not try this, you must obtain a permit to climb up on the lions!” The magnificently gallant white marble lions “Firm” and “Faithful” have returned to their rightful place to both guard and welcome those who cross at the west side of the new Bridge of Lions. These famous felines were in storage for just over six years while the Bridge of Lions construction project came to completion. There are plans for a formal welcoming ceremony after the nearby gardens and more decorative Bridge details have been added.
