Julie's garden is a tour destination for horticulturists. Charity tours of Brentwood's most delightful home gardens raise money and lower blood pressure!
Julie's had varieties of flowers named after her, including an exquisite and unique rose.
You can go on a slide-tour via YouTube. And yes, the intricate and at times erotic patterns of the budding flowers are nicely spiced with some Photoshop hybrids featuring the lady herself.
The original CATWOMAN will BE there, but only for a few hours.
Saturday June 25th (11:00am - 1:00pm) Julie will be signing copies of her "Conscious Catwoman" book, and her brother John Newmeyer will be signing his new one, "The Mediterranean Universe."
Billed as "The Convention with Catittude," the event takes place June 25/26 at The Reef in downtown L.A.
Yes, there have been cat shows for years and years. I remember seeing Julie's "Marriage-go-Round" co-star James Mason at the big cat show in New York years ago. BUT...there's nothing quite like CATCON.
Along with Julie, the fun events include:
The Furrocious Fashion Face Off Contest (cosplay cater), a cat adoption area so you can take home a tabby, Animal Planet's Escape Room (where humans can pretend to be cats, and play with giant cat toys), a video CatFest, a seminar on "How I Met My Cat" (featuring meowing Mariel Hemingway), and more.

HOLY 50th ANNIVERSARY! The main attraction this year is the dynamic TRIO of Julie Newmar, Adam West and Burt Ward.
This year's weekend of weirdness takes place at the Sheraton Parsippany.
There WILL be a photo op session where YOU can join ALL THREE for a memorable picture (suitable for framing).
The Chiller website offers a page where you can sign up for the PRO STAR event, 7:30pm on Friday, October 23rd, 5pm on Saturday, October 24th, and yes, on a relaxed Sunday afternoon, you can get your photo done at 1pm. These sessions are on the convention's second floor, set up with flattering professional lighting, to make sure that photo will be a keeper!

It's purrr-fect for relaxing during a "Batman" re-run. Sip enough and the lady across from you may turn into "Stupefyin' Jones." Sitting alone with a shapely bottle, and you may envision you're quenching with the wench of "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," delightful Dorcas.
Whatever your favorite Julie role, this wine could take you to "The Twilight Zone," or on a "Star Trek," or simply thinking, "Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar!"
It's a win-wine situation.
The wine has a bit of everything, including "a silky texture - with rich pear, lemon cream and honeyed flavors - that linger in a long leggy finish."
A truly fine vintage needs to age a while, and the idea for this exquisite wine fermented in the mind of John Newmeyer for many decades. John, of course is Julie's big brother. He's the grower behind Heron Lake Winery, and along with David Mahafee (officially "the vintner") they've created something that brings out the ecstatic or the erotic, and either a feeling of warmth or a fit of the giggles (or both).
What else could you want? Well, maybe someone in Colorado will come up with Marijuana-go-Round Brownies, to honor Julie's Tony-award winning Broadway role as Katrin. But for now, you'll have to figure out your own snack to eat while being merry with Julie Newmar wine:
It's being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center
1201 South Figueroa Street.
Bat-fans will also be able to meet and greet Adam West and Burt Ward.
Among the other "vintage" stars: Howie Mandel, James Hong, Edward James Olmos, and no doubt pretty tired from Halloween promotions, "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark" (aka Cassandra Peterson).
