  • Ostioneria Playas De Sinaloa

    Ostioneria Playas De Sinaloa

    Playas de Sinaloa is like most any other Sinaloa-style seafood restaurant-cheesy d├ęcor, light provided by neon beer signs, buxom waitresses in impossibly tight skirts and shirts that respectively rise too high and sink too low. But you're here... More on Ostioneria Playas De Sinaloa »

Bars & Clubs

  • Knucklehead's

    Knucklehead's

    A typical night will find this box-shaped building off San Clemente's main drag filled with loyal locals. Eleven TVs line the walls above the bar and over the two pool tables; most of the other wall space is covered in stickers in that classic... More on Knucklehead's »

  • Bootleg Theater

    Bootleg Theater

  • Segerstrom Center for the Arts

    Segerstrom Center for the Arts

  • Ippo Sushi

    Ippo Sushi

  • Dogzilla Hot Dogs

    Dogzilla Hot Dogs

    Dogzilla is a food truck that sells hot dogs. The great thing about Dogzilla's Asian-inspired hot dog is that their structural integrity remain: the noodles stay in place, the wiener doesn't slip, the bun soaks up everything but doesn't turn into... More on Dogzilla Hot Dogs »

    • David C. Mau writes for OC Weekly

      Twice a month, legendary bartender/chef/restaurant insider Dave Mau pops by Stick A Fork In It to chime in about a random OC food or drink musing of his choice. Enjoy!! Winter here in the OC may lack the simple charms of a New England one but it does have its advantages. We don't get many snowball fights, sleigh rides or other such trappings but we are granted a great time to surf. When the water warms up just a tad and that wind turns around with just the right swell, truth be told, I'll trade all the mittens and hot cocoa in the world... More on Zubies Dry Dock »

    • Playwright Samuel Hunter's characters are ordinary people with ordinary problems: mortality, illness, loneliness, figuring out how to get from Point A to Point C with no idea where Point B is. But Hunter raises the ordinariness of his characters to extraordinary status. That's both a testament to his dramatic skill as well as the latest evidence that the stories we tell ourselves about Americans don't have to be confined—as so many of Hunter's predecessors and peers do—to cultured, articulate, big-city types who whine and fret about their...
