Hope everyone had the chance to get to the 16th annual Taste of La Jolla this past Monday. Twenty of your favorite La Jolla restaurants got together to help raise funds for La Jolla High School (go, Vikings!). These things aren’t easy to put together, so a big congrats to LJSC’s own Julie Manriquez for all […]

Save the Women

It’s week three of Helptober (admittedly the worst theme month name we could’ve come up with), and we have a special spotlight on one of our members, her battle with breast cancer, her survivor-inspired swimsuit company and her new fight: defying metastatic breast cancer with her Save the Women campaign. But first… Our very own La Jolla Sports Club Personal Trainer, […]

We kicked around puns for the idea of ‘October’ + ‘charity’ or ‘helping,’ but couldn’t think of anything, so now you just get this: Helptober. Which sounds a bit like you reeeeeeeeeally like Hamburger Helper in the month of October. But what’re you going to do, you know? Regardless, this month, we’re shedding a little […]

The Plural of Octopus

It ain’t octopi. Did you know that the plural of octopus is not octopi, as many of us say without thinking, but octopuses? It’s true. Eighteenth-century English-speaking nerds mistook the original word as Latin, whereas Latin-speakers actually appropriated ‘octopus’ from Greek. Which, as you now know, changes the plural. In fact, even if it were from Latin, the […]

Get Off the Couch and On the Coast

Are you ready for some football??!! Sundays just really opened up for you. Carson Palmer (quarterback, Arizona Cardinals). Brandin Cooks (wide receiver, New Orleans Saints). Dontrell Inman (wide receiver, San Diego Chargers). Brett Murphy (guy, upstate New York). What do they all have in common? At least once in their lives, they played football and worked […]
