Huey Lewis? Here’s the News! Huey Lewis staged a birthday party at the Redwoods Retirement Community for his mother last week and introduced a new song, “When We Were Young,” a dance tune to close the generation gap. While the production crew filmed the excitement, Huey carried a birthday cake with 91 candles to his mother, and a few senior residents took the stage to dance. The video will be out soon and there’s a possibility of a concert in Marin later this year to benefit the 40-year-old facility’s multimillion-dollar revitalization project. Meanwhile, there’s an annual Crab Fest on Saturday, Feb. 28 to keep the Redwoods buses rolling. Information at 415/383-2741.
