    Enchanted by this annual Catalina soiree? You can book a coveted spot to the ball far in advance.

Oh, maybe they're plentiful in fairy tales, and in novels, and on movie screens, but sailing to an enchanted, storied island for an evening of dancing, an evening in a beautiful building that overlooks the moonlit waves? Nope. Nuh uh. That's the stuff of happily-ever-after'd-out yarns, and not the real world. Except, and here comes the big, shiny, star-like, glittery asterisk, you're talking about Catalina Island, which is pretty darn storied, and the Casino Building, which practically owns the patent on charm, and the annual Avalon Ball, a springtime soiree that sees a caboodle of festive joy-makers dressed to the vintage nines (and tens and sixteens and beyond).

Did you not go this year, but vow to correct that in 2018? Best make right, and make a big night of it, next May on that most bygone of here-today beauties, Catalina Island.
