“Big Little Lies” Takes Over Beaches and Parks

In exchange for just $60,000. P.G. hired a consultant to do math.

On Wednesday night, the Pacific Grove City Council voted in favor of negotiating an agreement with Blue Blues Productions to use city parks and streets for the show — which stars Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Meryl Streep and Shailene Woodley. Filming begins later this month at Lovers Point, according to the city.

“As prior owners found out, it’s a big space to fill and trying to run it as a single restaurant if you don’t have winter time local followers is going to make it tough to make it,” said McCord. “Some of the people have existing businesses in Monterey County and this would be a second location but they all realize they can’t make it on summer business alone.

“Businesses are going to have to cater to location and the locals,” he added.

“We’re looking forward to putting some more energy into that community,” said Cisneros. “But the owner is looking for the right tenants.”

If Otters In Your Teacup Is Character . .

I don’t know what is.

On Tuesday, two of the students began painting on the sketch on a wall that is 18 feet long and 9 feet tall in the coffee shop overlooking Lovers Point. The design, which is meant to capture Pacific Grove’s unique character, features a giant teacup with an otter floating in it along with other regional imagery including a Cypress tree and flying monarch butterflies. It was previously drawn out on the wall by sophomores Kaysa Paulsen and Sofia Chang.

Laws Do Not Apply For The Elite Class

Ever want to have a beer at Lovers Point or cook over a grill on the beach? Strictly forbidden unless you are from Carmel and have lots of money.

At Pacific Grove’s City Council meeting Wednesday, the council approved Carmel Film Festival’s request to hold its Filmmakers Beach Dinner at Lovers Point Park this year. Organizers of the event requested that fire pits be placed on the beach and that alcohol would be allowed for the event. Pacific Grove’s municipal code prohibits both.

“We approved it to go ahead but we need to review some aspects of events like that,” said Pacific Grove Mayor Bill Kampe. “We’ll need to look at city ordinances.”

The Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce also hopes to shift additional festival events in the future.

Festival organizers say they will pay for all needed city services in addition to rental fees for city parking lots and park areas and will utilize the city’s businesses for managing, catering and equipment rentals.

100,000 Gallons Of Raw Sewage Dumped On Lovers Point

M.R.P.C.A, the Monterey Regional Water Pollution Creation Agency had no plan in place for one lousy valve?


Scott Kathey, emergency response coordinator for the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, said cleaning sewage out of the ocean is impossible.

When asked what environmental impact may occur, Kathey said, “It’s hard to say. Obviously the plume is going to spread. Any kind of effects would be long-term.”

Marine animals could develop bacterial infections from coming into contact with the sewage, he said. Luckily, there were no sea otters or seals nearby at the time of the spill.

The recreational trail was closed to the public from the Monterey Bay Aquarium to Point Pinos. Lovers Point Beach was also closed, as well as all beaches one mile to the north and one mile to the south of it.

Tourist Goes Arse Over Tit, Cuts ‘Er Bonce

An 82-year-old woman visiting from England hit her head and was knocked unconscious when she fell on the rocks at Lovers Point on Tuesday morning.

The woman was bleeding from a “significant head injury” sustained from the fall when paramedics arrived on scene, according to emergency personnel. She had regained consciousness by the time she was transported by ambulance to Natividad Medical Center’s trauma center in Salinas to treat her injuries.

Old Beach House Opening Soon

“Small Plates” = Leave broke and still hungry.

I can’t give you an exact opening date, but I can give you the first look at the menu, an eclectic take on casual California cuisine. It focuses nicely on small plates, with a signature dish called Feast of Lanterns Firecracker Shrimp, cooked crispy and paired with a spicy, cream sauce. You also will find a regionally inspired smoked wild salmon galette with a lemon-dill crme fra”che, but then the menu takes a sharp turn toward classic French with garlicky escargot. Oysters are well-represented (cooked and raw), and small-plate prices vary from $8 to $18.

Could have been better..

Lovers Point Pool Reopening By Summer?

Lovers Point Pool And Slats
Kiddie Pool

The first pool just above the beach at Lovers Point was a saltwater plunge built in 1938. The current one, which was closed last summer because of a host of maintenance issues, was built in 1972. For years, the city held swim lessons and recreational swimming programs at the pool.

The city didn’t have the money to pay for pool repairs, so the community fundraising drive was organized. The goal was $250,000 — an amount that would probably provide an operating-fund endowment and swim-lesson scholarships.

A city busy spending money on image consultants and unnecessary street remodels leaves little for project the residents can enjoy.
