A local Polynesian dance troupe, Tupua, will be hosting a fundraiser Saturday in Costa Mesa, commonly known as “a plate sale” among Orange County’s Pacific Islander population. The troupe will be assembling plates of hot food available for pickup only. The plate sale will subsidize the cost of costumes for a bigger joint fundraiser May 8 with Mater Dei High School, in an effort to benefit the troop, the school and American Red Cross’ relief for Haiti and Chile.

There is certainly no shortage of places to eat in Huntington Beach, but there are very few, if any, that represent the newest dining craze — small plates. From New York to L.A. and points in between, “Food and Wine” magazine has named the small-plate phenomenon the hottest trend of the past year. The new wave has finally crashed onto the Huntington Beach restaurant scene in the form of Flight, a hip new dining spot and social lounge. Surrounded by elegant, towering palms, lit from below, encircled by stuccoed walls that enclose the front and back patios, you enter a contemporary oasis off the busy boulevards of Beach and Adams.

Michael Miller Last February, Newport Harbor High School's surf and environmental class gathered at the Santa Ana river jetties for its annual beach cleanup. The 20-odd students had two missions that winter morning: to remove as much trash as possible from the shore, and to figure out which substance was causing the most pollution. The first task was difficult. The second was easy. By the time half an hour was over, the students had filled 10 trash bags with discarded plastic foam.

From the front row of the bleachers at Bonita Canyon Sports Park, Jason Stern watched intently as his 9-year-old son stepped up to the baseball mound. The boy blew a bubble with his chewing gum, surveyed the field from behind sunglasses and delivered pitches for the Monday game - the first since the four-day suspension of the Newport Beach Little League had ended. "It's all right, bud, it's all right!" Stern yelled in encouragement to his son as the opening inning got underway.

Chef Jamie Ngo is a talented young chef with serious credentials, including Le Cordon Bleu, the Bazaar (a bastion of molecular gastronomy) in Beverly Hills, the Polo Lounge and the Ritz-Carlton in Pasadena. She now presides over her own kitchen at Scraps in Huntington Beach, serving an inventive fusion menu of small plates. Once again, we note that Huntington Beach appears to have more new, small, chef-driven restaurants than anywhere else in Orange County. The menu has many intriguing combinations that just beg to be tasted, and unusual variations on more familiar dishes.

IRVINE - What turned out to be instant gratification in terms of the victory in the baseball season opener, was the product of delayed offensive execution by host UC Irvine on Friday night. The Anteaters, ranked No. 30 by Collegiate Baseball, scored all of their runs with two outs to claim a 6-4 nonconference win over Baylor, ranked No. 23 by USA Today/ESPN. The Anteaters, coming off a 31-25 campaign in which they failed to make the postseason for the first time in seven seasons, strung together four two-out singles in a five-run third that erased a 1-0 deficit.

IRVINE - Even though UC Irvine freshman designated hitter Connor Spencer continues to solidify his spot atop the team batting average leader board, it's still the seniors who move the productivity needle most often for the Anteaters. Spencer, who came in batting a team-best .367, had two singles and drove in three runs in a 10-5 nonconference baseball triumph over visiting San Diego State on Tuesday. But seniors Jordan Fox, Tommy Reyes and D.J. Crumlich combined for seven hits, four RBIs and six runs to help the Anteaters get back on track after having lost five of their previous six. Senior starting pitcher Crosby Slaught allowed one hit in three scoreless innings to record the victory.

When Newport Beach Mayor Nancy Gardner delivered a two-word state-of-the-city address to the Corona del Mar Chamber of Commerce last month ("it's fine"), people thought she was mostly joking. Turns out she wasn't. Gardner slightly elaborated on that theme Friday night at the annual mayor's dinner, hosted by the advocacy group Speak Up Newport. She said the City Council and its administrators have reshaped the government the past two years, and now it is time to take a breath, to see how the major changes work out. Beyond that, she proposed revamping the city's TV station, better chronicling the area's history and identified some long-term goals.

COSTA MESA — There was buried treasure in the backyard just waiting to be dug up. And the family knew it. So one day the granddaughter decided to excavate what her grandmother, an escapee from an oppressive Russian tsarist rule, put in the dirt years ago. Turns out it was $57,000 worth of Russian gold rubles. That's just one story Colleen Rivera likes to tell. Witnessing such impressive finds is part of her job as a field manager for the Ohio Valley Gold & Silver Refinery's traveling roadshow.

PLACENTIA — Cole Pender does not wear the jersey number of a catcher. The 11-year-old is No. 99 and his dad, Denny Pender, can give you 99 reasons why he moved Cole from pitcher to catcher before the season. Two of those reasons were on full display Friday for the Newport Harbor Baseball Assn. Bronco All-Star team. Cole has the arm to throw out runners and attitude to block the plate. The runner from Los Alamitos heading home to tie the game in the bottom of the seventh inning was not making it home safely.

H ow about a high-end restaurant where you can have a moderately priced meal? Charlie Palmer at Bloomingdale's is certainly an elegantly appointed space with superior service, urbane touches like amuses bouches, mignardises and even a pretty little package of cookies to take home; but if you bring your own wine (because there is no corkage fee) and if you limit your ordering to the extensive small-plate and first-course menus, you can have a very nice dinner indeed for a very decent price.
