This week's hot spots!

EMC SEAFOOD & RAW BAR

We are searching for the King of Seafood Brunches. EMC Seafood & Raw Bar is a true contender, with similar restaurants through Southern California. Modern and spacious  interior design, accents the fresh high quality seafood offerings, but beware of the bottomless mimosa crowd!

EL CAMINO CAFE

El Camino Cafe dishes out some of their hometown Michoacán’s traditional dishes, meshing them with a few more Central American favorites, to offer a winning that satisfies breakfast and lunch cravings for a multicultural clientele that can appreciate Mexican authenticity.

THE ORTEGA HIGHWAY

 The Ortega Highway is an elegant serpentine single lane road that weaves its way through a vast swath of the Cleveland National Forest which separates Southern Orange County from Lake Elsinore and the desert beyond. Go after the rains and you'll see the falls in full force!
 

RANCHO CAPISTRANO WINERY

 Rancho Capistrano Winery on a Sunday afternoon is a Southern California delight, especially the little cul-de-sac near the railroad station. Live music flows from  wine bars, restaurants and dive bars, but the best seat in the town must go to Rancho Capistrano Winery. 

SUPERKING MARKETS INTERNATIONAL

 What? Gargantuan perfect pineapples only $1.99 each? Unheard of. Hmmm. Three pounds of bananas for a $1.00? Three bushy bunches of Kale for 99 cents? Finally, some decent-looking green beans at 69 cents a pound. I suddenly remembered why I first hunted out this place. 

NEWPORT AMERICAN LEGION

 For the view, the serenity and the friendly people I would give this place five stars. Nothing like a gentle breeze brushing through your hair as you gaze past teetering masts to watch the silent parade of stately sailboats glide by.  

Unless, you are dancing to one of their bands.
