Shop at LuLu Too


We are beyond grateful for LuLu Too in Eastside Costa Mesa, who are generously donating 20% of sales today and Thursday to Educating Jack & Milly. The fund is helping educate two bright and motivated Kenyans that I met in a rural village in Western Kenya three years ago. I promised to give them a college education, as it was their dream, but an impossible dream due to the expense. (They lived on less than a $1 a day.) Because of generous people in Orange County, Jack and Milly are well on their way to overcome poverty.

They are in their third year of a university education in Nairobi, Kenya, and I need to see that they make it to graduation. You can either shop at Lulu Too and pick up some great stocking stuffers for $20 or less, cozy scarves, socks, candles, bracelets, earrings and necklaces, or make a straight donation at Donate to Jack & Milly

Thank you in advance for making a difference in the lives of Jack and Milly and happy holidays. We take checks, Visa and MC.

Open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday; 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

Lulu Too is at 333 E. 17th Street (behind Pancakes R Us) in Costa Mesa.

Men Only


The Matador Alcove, a sophisticated, grown up version of the Little Rascal’s “He-Man Women Haters club,” but with better hair, décor and refreshments, is a respite for men who want to relax away from the ladies.

New Research Center at UCI


Exciting news for families and those affected by autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Former PIMCO COO, William Thompson and his wife, Nancy, through their family foundation, along with the Children and Families Commission of Orange County just gave a generous donation of $14.8 million to create a Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental disorders of Southern California, part of UC Irvine.

There’s nothing like it in SoCal, it will be a nationally recognized treatment and research center leading an innovative approach to research and treating a wide spectrum of autism related disorders. The Center will change autism treatment and research through an innovative multidisciplinary approach encompassing clinical trials and care, research, education, awareness, and community support. Chapman University and CHOC Children’s will also be involved in The Center for Autism.
