Springtime is thriving in Marina del Rey with perfect temps, our typical gorgeous scenery and of course, this Sunday’s holiday fun. There are some pretty excellent events happening around town to celebrate, like Heathy Spots dog-exclusive Easter Egg Play Date (fun!), but we know that the main event for a lot of us is that delightful tradition known as Easter Brunch. And as always, you have your pick of amazing Marina del Rey options, plus some great ones just minutes away. Take a look and enjoy your Sunday!

March madness just ended and now, the Major League Baseball craze is officially underway with the first opening game happening just days ago (the Dodgers & Angels first games are TODAY)! Are you ready for the SoCal team spirit, Marina del Rey? As always, you’ll be able to take in the ballpark action at the usual spots around town, like Yardhouse, Sports Harbor, Mo’s Place, Tony P’s, Killer Shrimp… you know the sports bar drill. But sometimes, watching the game on your own big screen in your own awesome pad (especially if it’s a sweet waterfront pad!) has its own great rewards. Inviting only your besties to watch; having your own smorgasbord spread to enjoy; and kicking back with zero driving required are pretty excellent reasons to forego the crowded pub scene. Plus, no matter what team you’re rooting for, you can cheer them on loud and proud with zero judgement from the opposite side (well, as long as you invite like-minded friends over, that is).
To help you host an awesome baseball soirée, here are some party pointers with décor ideas and concession-style food inspired by our SoCal stadiums. (The menu holds so much more than hot dogs, my friends.) Ready? Let’s Play Ball!

April is almost here — and man, it’s a great month, isn’t it? Aside from being 2017’s first full month of spring (yay!), it has one other really meaningful distinction — It’s National Volunteer Month. This annual commemoration came to the U.S. in 1974 and became a kind of celebration of volunteerism. In essence, this is the time to recognize the abundance of selfless work happening in our community, and inspiring others to get involved, as well. Donating time to a worthwhile organization can make a tremendous difference, plus no matter what you’re interested in, you’ll find a volunteer opportunity that goes right along with it. Love animals? Volunteer at the animal shelter. Good with kids? Apply to be a big brother or big sister. Into the environment? Be part of a beach clean-up crew. There are so many ways to help, especially in and around Marina del Rey.
Ready for your hour(s) to shine? Here are 7 volunteer ideas to consider starting this month.

NCAA action is in full swing and college basketball fans are definitely in their happy place with one eye on their brackets and one on the HD screen. These games have been hugely fun to watch and now that the Second Round is over and we’ve wound down to the Sweet 16 (and by Saturday, the Elite 8!), it’s only getting more exciting. When you have that much stellar entertainment ahead of you, it’s pretty crucial that you find the right venue to take it all in. There’s a lot to consider: Number of TVs, quality of food, beer selection and Happy Hours are the top four factors — and as always, we’re here to figure it out and lay the best Marina del Rey options on the table.
SPORTS HARBOUR — 13484 Washington Blvd, Marina del Rey
Yes, Sports Harbour is as divey as you can get but if you’re not into frills, this is a great spot to hang with friends and catch a great NCAA game.
