13534 Bali Way, Marina del Rey

SALT’s table-side Bloody Mary cart will no-doubt last beyond the season but it still screams classic summertime. Your custom Mary starts with your choice of spirit (the house infused cucumber Absolut® Elyx vodka is so good), a selection of “enhancements” (hot sauces, spices and citrus) and finally, the garnish decision. Boom. Your own blend of perfection.

Vintage Cool: Old Fashioned Day at the Park Sails into Marina del Rey

There’s something about vintage boats and classic cars that evoke images of pure cool. Remember when George and Amal Clooney dazzled the world in that vintage-inspired wooden water taxi (aptly named Amore)? Or when Steve McQueen catapulted through San Francisco in that sweet 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback in “Bullitt”? Yes, that’s what we’re talking about—and guess what? On Sunday, July 29th, the vintage cool is coming to Marina del Rey’s Burton Chace Park with the 42nd annual Old Fashioned Day at the Park event.

Add it to your must-go list right now…and get ready to spend a spectacular Sunday touring gorgeously restored classic yachts and cars from the 1920s, ‘30s, ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s. The fun is brought to you by the Classic Yacht Association, which has been around since 1969 and is dedicated to preserving, maintaining and promoting classic “pleasure crafts.” Check it out between 10am and 3 pm on July 29th because these yachts and vehicles are definitely something to behold.

A Drink for the Ages—Celebrate National Daiquiri Day July 19th

While the classic daiquiri may not be featured on menus as prominently as the Moscow Mule and Manhattan right now, make no mistake—Ernest Hemingway’s most talked-about cocktail is still a best-seller across the globe. As true adult beverage connosieurs will tell you—the most respectable daiquiris are not the blended varieties that resemble a 7-11 Slurpee. Nuh uh. Only accept the original: perfectly mixed rum, fresh lime juice and pure cane sugar—iced, vigorously shaken and strained. That’s the daiquiri you should crave. And that’s also the daiquiri that should be celebrated this Thursday (July 19th) on National Daiquiri Day.

Outdoor Summer Screenings in and Around Marina del Rey

Summer movie magic is back in Marina del Rey with the super fun (and free!) Marina Movie Nights starting this Saturday, July 14th at Burton Chace Park. The first film to hit the big waterfront screen this season is none other than the amazing La La Land—starting at 8 pm sharp. But take our suggestion and get there a couple hours early because there’s even more fun to be had before the film rolls. At 6 pm, the dance-art JAM Sessions will be happening, giving everyone (young and old!) the chance to learn some serious moves and have a lot of fun doing it. The cool thing about the JAM sessions is that each dance relates to the particular night’s movie—so for example, the dance before La La Land will be tap! Kind of nifty, right?

Now that you’re stoked for the JAMs and the movies, let’s get down to the details, shall we? Here’s the film trio planned for Marina Movie Nights this summer—and because we know how much you love the outdoor screening phenomenon, we also have listings for other outdoor movie venues on the Marina’s off nights. Happy summer!
