In a perfect world, parents can grab a beer, sit down to watch a game with friends while their children are perfectly entertained and well-behaved without them. Restaurateur Jeremy Foti can't guarantee a child's manners, but he is trying to provide the entertainment. Opening in about a month, Tapshack in Newport Beach and Taphouse in Huntington Beach will offer a wide array of draft beers, lunch and dinner menus, plasma-screen TVs and video game consoles. "It was sort of trial and error with my own three boys," Foti said of coming up with the concept behind the sports-themed bar and grill.

Nothing goes with the carne asada at Chronic Tacos on West Coast Highway like an ice-cold beer. But it doesn’t go down so well when it comes with a side order of outraged citizenry. Concerned with what they believe is a glut of bars in West Newport, a group of residents has blocked Chronic Tacos’ plans to expand its small take-out taco operation at 4525 W. Coast Hwy. to serve beer and include a sit-down dining area with 15 flat-screen TVs. “Chronic Tacos wants to paint it like, ‘Hey, we want to be this friendly neighborhood restaurant, but they want to serve pitchers of beer and have flat-screen TVs — people don’t just go to those establishments to get a taco and leave.

One retail center, two business partners and three restaurants opening - all within about four months.

"This is more about the center, and more about a collective effort of trying to create a culinary center in Orange County," Blom said.

ENSENADA, MEXICO - Before lunch began, Commodore Chuck Iverson sat in the back corner of a restaurant, reviewing the guest list. It seemed a generic Newport Beach scene: place settings arranged on white tablecloths. Ocean view. Members of the Newport Ocean Sailing Assn., or NOSA, bedecked in navy blazers and khaki pants, mingling with the mayor. Still, the group hadn't valet parked their cars outside. They'd arrived by van. And they were greeted with glasses of wine, not from California, but vineyards in Mexico.

Orange County Fairgrounds officials canceled the second session of a weekend beer-tasting event because of "unruly" attendees earlier in the day, event organizers said Monday. But in a prepared statement, fairgrounds officials countered that they shut down the Ultimate Beerfest OC session Saturday because its promoter and show manager, Karma Media Group, was not "readily responsive" to "operating deficiencies. " The deficiencies, officials said, were inadequate staffing levels at vendor booths and checkpoints, excessive consumption and not following necessary beverage-management protocols.

I am not a writer of prose. This is not an article, an anecdote or short story. It is simply the imperfect account of an evening from several points of view. So begins the document that Lee Mallory has set in front of me at a cramped wooden table in the corner of Alta Coffee in Newport Beach. By now, I've grown so accustomed to word processors and social media that the text - written on an old manual typewriter and photocopied for my use - looks like a carefully guarded antique.

The Shake Shack's application to serve wine and beer has been delayed by 10 letters of protest, a state official has confirmed. "It's going to be awhile," said Nora Amante, a licensing representative for the state's Alcoholic Beverage Control office in Santa Ana. The Shake Shack applied for the license in May. Fourteen letters were sent to ABC officials protesting the license, 10 of which were validated, she said. The letters generally expressed concerns for the dangers of intoxicated patrons leaving the parking lot and exiting onto East Coast Highway, she said.
