Shake Things Up

Date: Friday, September 12

Summer is almost over but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to cool down with a nice chocolate milkshake. This Friday is National Chocolate Milkshake Day, so take a trip over to Ruby’s Shake Shack on E. Coast Highway in Newport Coast for some sun, sand and shakes. Ruby’s offers chocolatey options like the classic Hershey’s chocolate shake and the deluxe double dark chocolate chip. The chocolate turtle shake is also strongly recommended, served in a tall glass oozing with caramel and chocolate sauce plus a metal tumbler inside equipped with even more milkshake! Ruby’s has been a staple in Cali for over 30 years and still delivers the same quality handmade shakes they started serving back in 1980. Ruby’s is open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.

Pluck Some Deals At The Rose Bowl

Date: Sunday, September 14

This weekend is the second Sunday of September and that means the return of the Rose Bowl Flea Market. LA’s best flea market is a sprawling utopia for casual and expert budget shoppers alike. For $20 you can beat the crowd and begin shopping at 5:00 a.m. If that’s a little too early you can also pay $15 at 7:00 a.m., $10 at 8:00 a.m. or just wait until 9:00 a.m. for the usual $8 fee. Preferred VIP parking is available right by the entrance or you can park for free if you don’t mind a short walk. The food court offers pizza, hot dogs, cheese burgers, french fries and almost any other kind of carnival style food you can think of. The exact items/vendors are different every time the market sets up shop but you can count on a vast selection of jewelry, shoes, electronic equipment and even custom handmade art. The box office is open until 3:00 p.m. and last minute shopping is permitted until 4:30 p.m.
