Fresh Meets: We’ll see you on the beach

By Katharine Romefelt

Don’t have plans this Saturday morning? Sleeping late doesn’t really count as a plan. Here’s something better, grab your friends or meet new ones while helping to maintain California’s beautiful coastlines.

Will says, ‘Keep it clean, slick.’

Join some fellow do-gooders (and feel-gooders) for a couple hours of mingling and cleaning! If you haven’t partaken in one of Heal the Bay’s “Nothin’ But Sand” Beach Cleanups yet, this Saturday (June 20) is the day.

Every third Saturday of the month, Heal the Bay hosts a clean-up party at a different beach so Los Angelenos all across Los Angeles can show their beautiful bodies of water some love.

Fresh Meets: See You on the Beach

By Katharine Romefelt

The beach clean-up is back. Bring your friends or make some new ones while helping to keep your beach pristine. Sinking your toes in the sand while socializing on a sunny Saturday morning actually sounds pretty nice, no? Just add a little cleaning to the mix.

Fresh Meets: It’s an Expression

By Katharine Romefelt

Say it loud, say it proud. Or just whisper into the microphone if that’s your thing. Yodel? Whatever you have to say, be heard this Monday at the creative open mic night event “Expression Mondays.” Even if you don’t have a burr in your saddle, you can attend New Earth’s monthly free-expression party for a little subversive entertainment.

New Earth’s primary focus is to provide arts programs to probation camps and boys’ homes throughout Los Angeles. They host “Expression Mondays” every second Monday of the month at 3131 Olympic Blvd. The action begins at 7:30 p.m., but be sure to arrive 30 minutes early if you plan to participate.

Cause Celeb: Directors, brewers and Kings, oh my

By Colin Newton

Ah, the beach. The beautiful surf, the meditative calm, the floating potato chip wrappers.

Well, maybe not the garbage. That’s why Heal the Bay has been out there healing the bay since 1985, fighting the good fight against the bad stuff we’ve put in the ocean.

healthebay4And anyway, who doesn’t love a party? As the sun slips down to the Pacific on May 14, the festivities begin for Heal the Bay’s annual awards gala, being held at the Jonathan Beach Club off the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica. There will be an awesome auction (Did someone say “Win a date with a Victoria’s secret model?), cool cocktails and schmoozing with some of Heal the Bay’s top donors. More than 1,000 of them will be posing on the blue — not red — carpet, said Afarin Davari, Heal the Bay’s development manager of corporate relations and special events.

Fresh Meets: Helping Hands in the Sand

By Katharine Romefelt

Cool ocean breezes on a Saturday morning? Check. Cool people with hearts of gold? Check. New friends for the taking? Yeah, buddy. Kick off your weekend at Heal the Bay’s “Nothin’ But Sand” Beach Cleanup on April 18. Bring some pals or plan to meet some new ones while collecting excellent karma and helping to maintain your local beach’s environment.

This month’s cleanup takes place on the sands of Santa Monica Beach at 2600 Barnard Way (at the end of Ocean Park) from 10 am till noon. What’s two hours between friends, acquaintances and the eternal sea? Waivers will be provided at the cleanup site, but volunteers are encouraged to complete one in advance by going to the website at www.healthebay.org.
