3. Dry Bar, which has locations in West Hollywood, Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, and Newport Beach, has supposedly opened in Manhattan Beach, according to its website. But their website also lists the location's address as being 2005-B East Park Place in Plaza El Segundo, which, as you can guess, is in El Segundo.
4. , as listed on CBS Los Angeles, is one of the best beach getaways in Southern California. Located at 3400 Highland Avenue in North Manhattan Beach, the inn is shown with a photo of The Roundhouse Aquarium & Marine Studies Lab shot from south of the pier... which, of course, is so very close to North Manhattan Beach where Sea View is. Yes, the MB Pier is iconic... and MB a travel destination... but why not use a photo of the beach scene at Marine Avenue/26th Street or El Porto, which are closer to the inn? I'm just asking.
5. The Warrant Register being presented to City Council for approval Tuesday, March 20 includes $7,500 for the Mira Costa Grad Night Booster Club. The city is a sponsor of the event.
