The SoCal heat wave was pretty epic the last few weeks—even here in the coastal paradise of Marina del Rey. Doesn’t Mother Nature know that today, autumn has officially arrived? There are a lot of us who don’t mind the 80-degree+ weather—it just gives us another reason to head to Mother’s beach and catch the last of the Indian summer rays. But for those who are ready to hang up the flip-flops for the season and break out your fall wardrobe, you’re looking for something—anything to get your mind off yet another “summery” day. Well, to help you out, we have 5 grand INDOOR ideas that will keep you blissfully comfortable until autumn feels like autumn. Are you ready to stay cool? Here we go:
Marina del Rey people, get ready for the spotlight because KNX News Radio’s “KNX On Your Corner” will be broadcasting live this Friday at the one-and-only Whiskey Red’s. The award-winning radio series regularly profiles Southern California’s most diverse cities and this week, all eyes (and ears) will be on the Marina from 5:00 am to 7:00 pm on KNX 1070. A whole lot of guests will be interviewed throughout the broadcast, including our very own civic leaders—giving the public some in-depth insight into just what makes our beachy, beautiful town so darn wonderful.
The 2014 football season is just about on—and fans in Marina del Rey are officially stoked. Yes, L.A. has gone team-less for 20 long years, and boy, do we want to change that. But that bummer of a fact sure doesn’t stop us from having some of the most diehard football fans anywhere. We root for the Raiders, the Chargers and the 49ers when we’re sticking to our state-allegiances, but there are also plenty of us donning our Broncos, Redskins, Ravens (etcetera…) jerseys, too—and we love that! Friendly competition is good for the soul and starting this Thursday, there are going to be some pretty healthy souls at sports bars all over Marina del Rey.
You’ve seen the signs: school buses back on the road, a few less people hitting the beach, summer specials disappearing from restaurant and spa menus across town—it can only mean one thing: summer is coming to a close. There is a bright side, though! Aside from the fact that summer never actually ends in Marina del Rey (the upside of living in paradise), there is one major plus to the end of the season…and that is Labor Day Weekend.
