The Marina Roundup: What’s Happening in & Around Town This Month

Marina del Rey has got some major March mojo going on with a ton of great stuff happening all around us. Feel like influencing a popular restaurant’s menu? Get ready to wield your tasting power. Interested in some on-the-water jazz with a side of French toast? Done! How about running say… 26.2 miles and then grabbing a free beer? Go to it. This month has some big fun on the agenda so open that calendar app and get tapping. You’ll want to get in on at least one of these events.

Adventure Time! Not Your Every Day Fun — In and Around Marina del Rey

 

Life in Marina del Rey is all about having a good, balanced lifestyle. It’s about going to Mother’s beach any time we want; hopping on a champagne cruise to celebrate the weekend; pedaling up the strand to chill in Venice; or eating dinner harbor side on a perfect weekday night. That’s the stuff paradise is made of, right? Of course! But that doesn’t sum up all of the fun available around town. There are a few really cool (and kind of unusual) to-dos in Marina del Rey and in our neighboring towns that you need to check out if you haven’t already. We’re not talking about yoga on the water (which rocks) or music in the park (which is always fun) — we’re talking about the kind of stuff you don’t do every day. Activities that you just have to tell your friends about and post about on social media with a lot of hashtags (i.e. #ICanFly #CallMeSherlock #DancingQueen — keep reading, you’ll see what we mean!).

Here are FOUR ideas that definitely fit the “fun but different” bill. Go do at least one this weekend. Then tell us all about it!

Marina Spotlight: Paddle for Breast Cancer this Sunday at Mother’s Beach

The great part about life in Marina del Rey is that there are always cool things going on. Concerts in the park, Champagne brunches, and amazing events that radiate a brand of charm that’s just pure Marina magic. One of the most powerful events happening down at Mother’s Beach every month is the TBG Champion Paddle, a 90-minute SUP paddle event for breast cancer awareness & support. It happens one Sunday each month from 9 am to 10:30 am, and it’s an extraordinary way to spend a weekend morning.

The TBG Champion Paddle itself is a joint effort between the ProSUP Shop and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Tiffany B. Grunwald, to raise awareness for breast cancer, celebrate healthy bodies, and honor all of the incredible breast cancer warriors who have fought the disease. It’s a pretty nifty gathering where you can get out on the water, support friends & family and be a part of something kind of special for 90 minutes.

If you’re interested, here are the details.
