My husband and I spent late Sunday afternoon walking Main Street in Seal Beach, California.
Main Street has a nice "small town" feel, with many unique shops and restaurants. We used to come down here fairly often when our children were young, hunting for Beanie Babies and enjoying ice cream, but it had been quite a while since we'd visited.
I've bought numerous garden flags here over the years!
The Seal Beach Pier is at the end of Main Street. Alas, a fire destroyed the closed Ruby's Diner at the end of the pier last May. I have nice memories of taking our children to eat there years ago.
Tonight we ate at Beachwood BBQ. It was terrific.
Love the retro menu design:
The BBQ Brisket Sandwich:
I saw SUNSET BLVD (1950) and A PLACE IN THE SUN (1951) at the Bay Theatre on Main Street early in 2012, but it closed soon afterwards. A May article in the Orange County Register indicated there was an interested buyer, but as of this evening there is still a "For Sale" sign in front of the theater. The Bay has been around since 1947, and it would be lovely if someone were able to fix it up and reopen it!
