Costa Mesa-based Beach Pit BBQ recently re-upped its contract for another five years with the Los Angeles Angels to remain at the stadium. And now it’ll be easier to get some barbecue at the game as the company expands its stands from two to five. The three new spots are behind home plate on the “View Level,” near left field behind the rock pile and just inside the third-base gate. There you can order up some spare ribs, quartered-chicken, baked beans and blueberry corn bread while rooting the Halos on to another successful season.

While it is stag night for me most evenings, my friend found himself wifeless one recent midweek night. Men, especially married ones whose wives are CEOs of the family, are dangerous when left to their own devices. The choices my friend could have made for dinner would probably have been disastrous, plus I don’t even know if they sell pizza-flavored Cheez Whiz anymore. So we got together for a little male bonding time and figured the food had to be manly to fit with the theme of the evening.

Every dad usually knows what to expect on Father's Day: a barbecue, beers, burgers, a comfortable chair and an endless run of sports shows on TV. Or so they hope. The staff at the Hilton Orange County in Costa Mesa took all those elements to mind when putting on the quintessential event for dads Sunday. And so "King for a Few Hours" was born. After the consecutive and increasing success of "Queen for the Day" for the two years in a row, the staff at the Hilton decided to supply dads with their own form of the royal treatment complete with all the fixings a man could want.

Almost 100 of Brian "Bubba" Kapko's friends, and family gathered Saturday before the Angels game for a "Bub-A-Que" in memory of Kapko who was killed in a car accident Aug. 28, 2005. The Costa Mesa native, who was 19 when he died, was a big Angels fan, and soon after his death a group of his friends went to a game in his honor. In the Angels stadium parking lot before Saturday's game, everyone grubbed on ribs, chicken, cornbread and mashed potatoes from Newport Rib Company. Family members hope to make it an annual event.

As owner of Newport Rib Company, John Ursini does his best to provide food that is delicious. Yet, Ursini recently produced something that left a bad taste in the mouths of Costa Mesa High supporters. It didn't have anything to do with food. Rather, Ursini's attempt at comedy during a celebration ceremony at Estancia High left many angry and disappointed. He wrote and read a top 10 list of reasons why Estancia won the All-Sports Cup, for the fourth straight year, on Thursday.

COSTA MESA — About 150 people poured into Estancia High School's gym to celebrate the life of Jim Scott, an avid school booster who pioneered the building of the school's football stadium that today bears his name. The memorial coincided with the Battle of the Bell, a ritual he created in the mid-1980s to foster community traditions and a friendly competition between Estancia and its cross-town rival, Costa Mesa High, said son Jim Scott Jr. The ceremony began and ended with a bagpipe, whose player wore a red kilt and Scott Clan shirt.
