In case you didn’t know, there is this amazing giant body of water next to our beaches called the Pacific Ocean. It’s pretty amazing… but it holds a lot of secrets. Interestingly there is an aquarium operated by Heal The Bay that is dedicated to the amazing creatures and environment for JUST OUR South Bay area and somehow it is almost a bigger secret… and it shouldn’t be! If you love our local beaches and ocean scrape together a meager $5 and head down to the aquarium which is located right under the Santa Monica Pier along the walkpath. on Ocean Front Walk. This weekend they are having a special Halloween event celebrating Halloween and Dia de los Muertos. You will get to know a bunch of our hidden and not so hidden sharks, fishies, starfishies, sea horses, urchins and all the crazy stuff about our ecosystem that will help you understand why Heal The Bay works so hard to keep the environment clean.

I have lived here for a long time, and even though I knew the aquarium was there, I never went. What a mistake! It was amazing! It isn’t a huge place, but for $5 it sure packs a punch and I was amazed at all the critters that I didn’t know we had and what they do all day.

For more info go to http://healthebay.org/smpa or better yet head to 1600 Ocean Front walk, Santa Monica, Ca 90401, or call them at 301-393-6149

Wedding Party Bus Of Angry Women Prompts LAPD Backup Call On Navy & Pacific

Nothing cements wedded bliss like having your post-nuptuial party bus stop at Davy Jones Liquor Locker on Navy & Pacific… and having a bunch of broads in bridesmaids dresses whip up a fight. LAPD called for backup on the group that was in a monstrous white slug of a bus, screaming, yelling and punching one another. Oh, and like just about everyone else in Venice, they were wasted drunk. LAPD hustled them all back up on the white larvae of doom and sent them on their drunken, merry way.  Thanks to @zumadogg for the narrated video.

Dog Saved From 1:30 A.M. Apt Fire On Pacific Ave

Just after 1:30 a.m. LAPD was flagged down by a citizen as smoke was seen in an apartment and a german shepherd was stuck inside barking ( you can hear him/her in the radio call below ). LAPD called LAFD and the dog was rescued, and whatever fire there was, was extinguished. Went by this a.m. to snap a pic to find a probably totally unrelated but unfortunate butt and a box of matches on the steps. Smoking: bad for dogs, bad for people. Thanks to @chancesurfer for the heads up!
