Visit the Night Shift!

05.20.11

Explore the amazing nocturnal world of Carbon Canyon during a hands-on twilight nature walk tonight. From coyotes to opossums, OC Park staff will be unraveling the mysteries of the "night shift" and teaching why they (the animals, not the employees we assume) prefer the cloak of darkness to the brightness of day.

Pre-registration is required for the 7:30 to 9 p.m. event by calling 714.973.3160. The event is free and parking costs $3 per vehicle.

Carbon Canyon Regional Park is located at 4442 Carbon Canyon Road in Brea.

Herb Alpert in OC!

05.17.11

Two legends are returning to Segerstrom Center for the Arts on Friday – Herb Alpert and Lani Hall!

The concert will include many songs from their latest collaborative effort “I Feel You,” which includes several reinterpreted classics – like Van Morrison’s “Moon Dance,” Peggy Lee’s “Fever” and two Beatles’ songs “Here Comes the Sun” and “Blackbird” – and is the duo’s first studio album in nearly 10 years.

Hall met Alpert when she opened for his Tijuana Brass when touring with Sergio Mendes and Brazil 66. The two were married in 1973 and have been musically intertwined ever since.

Tickets for their one-night-only OC concert are still available and start at $25.

Chicks Dig Scars, right?

05.16.11

Not that getting hurt is cool at all, but it happens, especially when you’re a surf/skate snow enthusiast, or you’re a kid growing up in SoCal. So here to protect the damage that’s been done is a new line of cool Skate Series bandages from Medline. You have to love these mini-skate board bandages featuring iconic artwork from the legendary NHS crew (Santa Cruz Skateboards, Skateboarding Is Not a Crime), Creature Skateboards and Flip Skateboards. In the future, other board companies will be featured as well as more board sports. The bandages are now available at Wal Mart, Duane Reede, Price Chopper and Brookshire Stores.
