What’s Happening This Week: July 13, 2020

Los Angeles Greater Area

Restaurants selling groceries

Supplement (or skip!) the supermarket with a stop at one of these heaven-sent eateries now offering groceries, wine, produce boxes and more for fast pickup. Many offer delivery, too.

New: KCET Southland Sessions

Starting July 15, a kaleidoscope of up-close virtual “sessions” will showcase SoCal at its most inventive, gifted and visionary – from high school operas and drive-thru art to Chicano comedies, underground DJ sets and more.

Been dreaming of leaving the planet?

Think about escaping to the International Space Station. Among its endless wonders, Google Arts & Culture will take you on a 360o tour of the ISS, from its endless vistas of space to its narrow tunnels and equipment-packed rooms.

Run out of online kids’ activities? Never!

Here’s a whole new treasure trove that will keep them busy for at least a couple of hours. From learning sites to fun activities, we bet you haven’t gotten to all these yet.

San Francisco Bay Area

North Coast Getaway

We could all use a little getaway. And with its spectacular northern California coastal scenery and modern amenities, Mendocino just might fit the bill. The small rural county is reopening for visitors—including glamping sites, wine tasting, and outdoor dining. Here are some of the best lodging, eating, drinking, and adventuring to be had in Mendocino. 

Dining on the go

California can credibly lay claim to being the birthplace of car-centered dining. And with Covid-19 still lingering, what better time for-auto dining? Eater has the scoop on 14 of Northern California’s best drive-through and drive-in restaurants. That includes, of course, some classic burger joints, but also some taquerias and even a falafel spot. 

Outdoors, Marin-style

In a region renowned for its access to the outdoors, Marin is arguably home to the best hiking of any county in the Bay Area, with trails stretching from beach to mountain, wide-open coastal buffs to towering redwoods. It’s no easy feat to narrow it down, but here is one writer’s list of the ten best day hikes in Marin. Happy hiking!

A new Wine Country destination 

It was delayed by a couple of months, but Bricoleur Vineyards appears to be worth the wait. Windsor’s scenic new wine oasis courtesy of tech entrepreneur-turned-farmer Mark Hanson offers 40 lush social distance-able acres of olive trees, orchards, and vineyards with picturesque views of the Russian River Valley.
