People: Just Wanna Have Fun?

Ladies Laughing



Local improv actors and visiting players from the Central Coast and the Bay Area will get together for some family friendly fun on Saturday night, Nov. 5, for a “Mix’n’Match iMPRoV Show” at the Christian Church of Pacific Grove.

Located at 442 Central Ave., the sanctuary of this historic church is both a beautiful and intimate setting for theater and musical performances.

The show starts at 7:30pm, and general admission is $10. For more info call 831-372-0363.


Here’s a Place to Have Even More Fun (for $999/week)

This two bedroom/one bath Pacific Grove apartment is a hop and a skip to the coastal recreational trail, where you can enjoy the improv antics of local sea otters.

And it’s just around the corner from the Monarch Grove Butterfly Sanctuary, where thousands of fluttering beauties are spending their winter in a lovely, protected eucalyptus grove.


The “Lost Art” of Home-Canning Produce

The town of Pacific Grove is straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting, and so are these upcoming baking and home-canning workshops at the Happy Girl Kitchen Company.

Happy Girl—purveyor of organic “food that feeds your soul”—is our source for all things wonderful in the world of jams and preserves: from pickled vegetables to luscious fruit preserves (and summertime strawberry lemonade). It’s a great place to pick up a gift, or a light breakfast/lunch.

These hands-on sessions will teach you home-canning techniques so you can preserve and eat local foods year round.

They each include an organic lunch made from local produce—and of course you’ll get to take home an assortment of each recipe.

Each workshop runs from 10 am to 3 pm at at Happy Girl’s store/cafe/kitchen (173 Central Avenue, Pacific Grove), and the fees run from $110-$135 per person.
