FREE Outdoor Movies In The Park In Dana Point

Hey kids!  I wanted to share something special with you!  Dana Point has something they do called Movies In The Park. It is exactly what it sounds like.  You go out to Lantern Bay Park (which has an amazing view of the harbor by the way), hang out until the sun goes down and watch a movie!  And it’s FREE!!!  It is brought to you by the same folks who tried bringing Drive-In movies back to the OC Fairgrounds.  (I’m still mad it never took off.)

I first did this 2 weeks ago.  We watched Monsters Vs. Aliens.  As you can guess by the movie, this is a very family-friendly atmosphere.   Tonight they will be showing The Wizard of Oz.  I’ll be there!  Will you?  Look for me and say hi!

Be sure to bring a nice big blanket and some picnic items!  They have a snack bar where everything is $1 with all the proceeds going to charity.  Also, if you get there early enough there are 2 fire pits.  And please, if you are going to bring lawn chairs, please make sure they are not tall as a courtesy to the people around (behind) you.

I have also seen something for outdoor movies in Newport Beach on Saturday nights, but I don’t have much information on that.  But feel free to check it out and if it’s awesome, let us know!

FREE Pinkberry!!!

Sorry for the last minute post, but I just found out about this. Pinkberry is giving away free small yogurts tonight from 5pm-9pm to celebrate their new Mango flavor!!

More info can be found here.

I’m not so much a fan typically, but maybe I’ll give this new flavor a shot since its FREE. Enjoy! Have a great weekend.

FREE Pancakes!!!!

Tomorrow is IHOP’s National Pancake Day!!  That means from 7am-10pm, go to participating IHOP restaurants and you can receive a FREE short stack of pancakes!!!

Being that tomorrow is also the opening of Captain EO, you can go get your FREE pancakes across the street from the Disneyland Main Entrance at the IHOP on Harbor, then head straight into the park to see Captain EO!  (And yes I called to check, though usually that IHOP does not honor promos usually, they WILL be honoring that promo.)

*Also a little tip: If you park at that IHOP, you can run into the park for a bit and save yourself the Disney parking fees. :-)

FREE Disneyland 2fer Tickets!!!!

Are you on Twitter yet??  If not, now might be a good time to make an account, and if you are, you need to follow @Disneyland.  Not only do they let you know about deals around the resort and provide fun facts now and again, but at 12pm today they will be having their “first ticket giveaway” on Twitter!  I take “first ticket giveaway” to mean there will be others too.  So hurry up and add them and check in around noon for your chance to win.  I know I will cause my Annual Pass expires this month!

So hurry, cause it’s FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Proof Tuesday w/ DJ Vytal! It’s Free!!!


Hi gang, here’s a little promotion for a friend of mine.  This Tuesday, my friend George, a.k.a. DJ Vytal, will be spinning Top 40, Hip Hop and House music at Proof Bar in the Santa Ana Arts District.  I have been the last 2 nights and it is a LOT of fun!  And the best part, there’s NO COVER! (In Orange County, this is a big deal).

So if you have no plans Tuesday night (and you don’t have to be up early Wednesday) come down and hang out with me and my friend George!  And don’t worry about coming to an empty, awkward bar.  This place gets full and is TONS of fun.

I’ll be there, but don’t expect me to be able to hold a conversation once class has started…

Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park


I’ll be honest and say I haven’t been exposed to much wildlife ’round these parts. I still get excited when I see rabbits and squirrels. So when we saw deer a couple of weeks ago I couldn’t stop snapping pictures.

We were scoping out Riley Wilderness Park for an engagement photo shoot and I am so happy our photographer pointed this place out. Also known as Wagon Wheel Park it is off of Oso Parkway just before the entrance to Coto de Caza and its awesome. There are short trails to walk on or to ride,wildllife to see and hardly any people the couple times I’ve been.


We must have seen more than 20 deer roaming around. So if it must be 80 degrees in November you might as well make the best of it and head here for a picnic or an early morning walk.

Need to work off that Halloween candy?


LA Boxing in Lake Forest is offering a free class here!

Classes available are boxing, kickboxing and mixed martial arts and are scheduled throughout the day and evening. There are classes for men, women and children.

It’s the Kids Book Festival!


For the 6th year OCC will be hosting the Children’s Book Festival. I will totally be going to this festival. It doesn’t matter that I’m 30 years old and don’t have any kids of my own.

There will be authors, illustrators, exhibitors and entertainers. There will also be face painting, a petting zoo and train rides for those not so into books. This will be a book lovers dream… OK a kids book lovers dream.
