Halloween Events in Costa Mesa

Posted on October 29, 2013 | 12:18pm

Over time, Halloween has evolved from its superstitious routes to today’s version better known for costumes and candy than warding off spirits.  With the autumnal holiday coming up this Thursday, it’s time to don those dress-up duds and carve the Jack-o-lantern.  This week, there are some fun Halloween festivities in Costa Mesa, so if you like good food, drinks and parties, the City of the Arts is the place to be this All Hallows Eve.

Posted on October 28, 2013 | 2:40pm

3×30 Yoga is a new studio that offers guests a wide range  of difficulty levels and multiple styles.  The name comes from their concept that three, thirty-minute-long yoga classes per week will change your life.  At 3×30, the belief is not about how much you sweat during your workout, but rather, the consistency in which it is performed.  The quick classes at 3×30 Yoga are perfect for people with busy schedules.
