I completely forgot about terrariums, until I read The Ecology Center’s first-ever workshop on the art of terrariums! And like anything that’s tie-dye, I love this remnant from the 70’s. This Saturday, Jan. 9 at 1 p.m. you can create an entirely self-sufficient ecosystem that fit inside one-gallon glass jars. Costs $25 plus, $15 materials fee.The Ecology Center, 32701 Alipaz St., San Juan Capistrano. Register in advance by calling The Ecology Center at 949.443.4223, or visit TheEcologyCenter.org
Wait a second, one minute Hooters is known for waitresses with big, well you know, and now we have to think of it as a Big Burger meal deal spot? So I read that Hooters claims that today’s debut of “More than a Mouthful Mondays” a ½ elle bee cheeseburger with French fries for $5.99 is the best value in the restaurant biz today. Hmmm, I guess they haven’t been to my favorite burger place in OC, T.K. Burgers where the big bargain combo (a cheeseburger and fries) costs $5.49. Not only that, but the girls are super cute too. Five OC locations.
It’s no doubt that Sprinkles is the leader in the cupcake craze, but right here in OC, you can find Divine Desserts in Laguna Niguel which specializes in incredible cupcakes, too. Cordon Bleu trained chef/co-owner Leslie Lewis bakes 20 flavors daily, and she creates custom cakes to die for as well. Try for yourself: Divine Desserts is giving a free cupcake (with the purchase of one) just by mentioning Greer’s OC. Also, for a New Year’s Eve and Day special order a dozen gourmet cupcakes for just $33 or a mini-dozen for $15.
Check out Divine Desserts on Greer’s OC TV.

It’s not like shopping hasn’t probably consumed you for the last few weeks, but here’s a chance to save money on cool surf/skate/snow apparel. Surfside Sports after Christmas sale is going on through Dec. 28. (Their sales are always great.) All clothing and accessories are reduced 25% to 50%, and besides that, they carry my boys’ favorite jeans: Quiksilver’s Danny Garcia Signature Denim. These jeans are made of CoolMax fabric (which I always thought was reserved for socks) and my boys say they fit like no other.
