Fourth of July Around Orange County



    NOT ONE: And not two. But sometimes three, right? We can often find ourselves promising to swing by at least three or more homes of friends or relatives when a holiday that's much associated with backyards and barbecues arrives. (Whether we eat a burger or hot dog at each stop is another matter, and probably up to individual discretion.) With that in mind, we're guessing a lot people around Southern California will be on the barbecue circuit on Monday, July 4. Which is at it should be. Tradition and all that. Plus, hot dogs and all that. It's all good.

    OC FUN: If your personal circuit has you making stops in Irvine or Tustin or Anaheim or Huntington Beach, best check out this handy fireworks round-up put together by the Anaheim Orange County Visitors Bureau. A lot of geography is covered on the list, and variety, too -- an Angels game and Disneyland are on the roster -- so if you'll be barbecue-stopping-by-ing in the region, check it out.
