Super bloom chaos in California

When news of a possible super bloom in Southern California was announced earlier this year, some towns, such as Borrego Springs near Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, geared up for mayhem. During the last super bloom in 2017, the town was overwhelmed by an estimated 500,000 flower-peepers, so this year it ordered dozens of portable toilets and dumpsters and took measures to reduce traffic buildup and parking issues. The town of Lake Elsinore, California, however, was not as prepared for the in...

Disneyland’s $199 peak daily ticket has been topped: Which park is most expensive now?

How much is too much to pay for a day at a theme park? Is $200 too much? Disneyland in January raised its top one-day ticket price to $199, for a Park Hopper ticket that gets you into both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure on the same day. On the East Coast, Walt Disney World last week raised its top one-day ticket price to $219, which buys you admission into all four of Disney World’s theme parks for one day during its busiest week of the year, at Christmas.

First Look at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge App For Disney Parks

Disney wants guests to have a truly immersive experience when they step into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. One way they’re looking to facilitate that is through the use of an app, which through your interactions will  ultimately decide whether you support the Resistance, the First Order, or roam around as an independent scoundrel. Now we have a first look at the design of the app, and you can read more about this “vital tool” and how it will be used in the park below. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Ap...

Walker Canyon poppy fields reopen in Lake Elsinore as officials ask: What do we do next?

In the midst of perhaps the most stunning wildflower superbloom in recent memory, the irresistible Walker Canyon poppy fields that closed in Lake Elsinore on Sunday, March 17, amid chaotic crowds have reopened — for now. “It’s all open at this point,” Mayor Steve Manos said Monday morning, March 18, adding that weekday traffic tends to be manageable. The weekend traffic and associated problems — such as overflowing portable toilets, bumper-to-bumper traffic and cars parking on the 15 Freeway — w...

Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens weighs in on Santa Anita troubles

Retired Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens was vacationing in Hawaii this past weekend, but his heart was here in Southern California. Stevens, 56, spent the vast majority of his career riding at Santa Anita, Hollywood Park and Del Mar against the likes of Bill Shoemaker, Laffit Pincay Jr. and Mike Smith, and it’s heartbreaking for him to sit back and watch the recent upheaval at Santa Anita. “It makes me sad. It’s the ‘Great Race Place,’” Stevens said during an exclusive interview with the Southe...

Dick Dale, ‘King of the Surf Guitar,’ dead at 81

Richard Monsour may have grown up in snowy Massachusetts, but the guitarist known as Dick Dale brought the rock music of California’s surf culture to the nation. Known as the “King of Surf Guitar,” Dale, 81, died over the weekend, according to reports. While Dale’s music traveled around the world, his imprint on Southern California is strong. He led the surf music revolution from the Rendezvous Ballroom on the Balboa Peninsula in the late 1950s and early 1960s and over the years had residences i...

I used Prague Powder to make corned beef

I've been experimenting with curing meat, cause life has been too long already. Prague Powder is the secret ingredient. While I've tried a couple of different recipes for corned beef I am not ready to recommend one yet. Getting the spice blend right may be a thing of personal preference, but I have to keep working at it. Getting the texture and color right, however, was very simple. I used Anthony's Pink Curing Salt #1. Curing Salts are not edible on their own. That is why they dye them pin...

The Disneyland Resort has been named the most vegan-friendly theme park in America, by PETA —People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.  The announcement attracted the attention of many, even august foodie magazines such as Food & Wine, which usually show little interest in amusement park fare. “Once upon a time, theme park food meant hamburgers, hot dogs, and turkey legs.

‘Dumbo’ Has Hidden Easter Eggs for the Original Movie, Disney Parks, and Tim Burton Himself

Since the animated musical Dumbo hit theaters in 1941, the lovable, big-eared elephant has become an iconic Disney mascot, as recognizable as Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck. That can be partially attributed to Dumbo’s outsized presence at Disney Parks, with the Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride becoming a longtime hallmark of Disneyland, Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, and Hong Kong Disneyland. But the original 1941 animated film also holds a special place in Di...

Now that the opening dates for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge have been announced, the excitement couldn’t be higher for the expansion at Disney theme parks. However, even though plenty of new details have come from a recent glimpse behind the scenes of Galaxy’s Edge, construction is still very much underway. A lot of work must be completed before fans can venture into a galaxy far, far away (so much that one of the major rides won’t even be ready when it opens). In the meantime, some new drone foota...
