Brush off those lederhosen and dirndls boys and girls because the Irish eyes are smiling down on us March 17th when — you guessed it — St. Patrick’s Day arrives! There are so many ways to celebrate in and around town, like going on the lash with the lads and lassies, hitting a pub that’s jammers or having a gas out on the harbor (yeah, we’ve got the Irish lingo down). You ready for some Marina del Rey-style craic? Take a look at some of your best options below, choose wisely and then have the best Irish holiday ever. Remember, if you’re planning on getting langered, arrange an Uber or Lyft to shuttle you about town. Safety first! Cheers to Paddy Day shenanigans!

Happy National Pancake Day, Marina del Rey friends! This is your day to celebrate the delicious, starchy, “more syrup please!” miracle that is the pancake (preferably with a big ole stack at your favorite Marina breakfast spot). Since this “holiday” is actually a gigantic deal at IHOP, you’ll naturally want to head to the Marina-area location at some point today. Especially since they have a very cool charity deal tied in that makes it hard to resist (read below for details!).
But that’s not the only game in town — not even close. Because if you’re a true pancake lover, you’ll save IHOP for dinner and head to one of our quaint little (spectacular) dining destinations for a breakfast stack of homemade pancake goodness right now. Are we suggesting you have pancakes for TWO meals today? Of course we are. Consider it a National Pancake Day challenge. Are you up for it? Let’s go!

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.

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!

Pantone’s 2017 color of the year may be in a shade of green — but when February comes around, it’s all about RED, people. Because (in case you didn’t know), this month happens to be American Heart Month, where the nation shines a light on cardiovascular health. In Marina del Rey, keeping our cardio powering on should be pretty easy with all of the outdoor activities happening around town — but we’ve all been there when work gets busy, life gets hectic and we’re just not taking care of ourselves as well as we should be. That’s why it’s so important to talk about cardiovascular health, and American Heart Month starts the conversation and gets us thinking about what we can do for ourselves and others.
Here are a few ideas to make the most of this month (and keep it going!).
