    Lobsterfest
    You don't have to wait for September for that first buttery dip; SoCal lobster season is a-cookin' as of Saturday, Aug. 8.

    AFTERNOON AFFAIR: The seafood soiree is a daylight-into-evening thing, so be at the resort from 3 o'clock to 8 p.m. if you want to dig into lobster goodness. There shall be one whole Maine lobster in your meal, and lots of classic sides, from red potatoes and corn on the cob to rolls and the gotta-have-it drawn butter. A general ticket? It's sixty bucks, and some of the money raised from the day goes to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Orange County and the Inland Empire. The amount donated each year? Five thousand, says the organization hosting the feast.

    LOBSTER MASCOTS... and dining in the sunshine (if the weather plays nice) and a bit of butter on your shirt all say one thing: The seafoodiest stretch of the year has arrived in Southern California. And you didn't even have to wait for September. Though we're guessing you might put in an appearance at September's Big Lobster 3, too.
