SHOW ME HOW
Tree Huggers Ball and Go Green Expo, Saturday, 6 p.m.Canyon Land Conservation Fund works year-round to preserve the last of the wilderness within OC's Cleveland National Forest, so check out this hip eco-outfit and arrange a romantic summer evening at the Fifth Annual Tree Hugger's Ball, hosted by groovy canyon folk who are stewards of this land. They'll serve dinner under the stars and the oak canopy, complete with dancing and, yes, exhibitors of eco-friendly products to make everybody smart and energy-efficient.
Blackstar Ranch, 27912 Baker Canyon Road, Silverado, CA
Giant Paintball Park, Friday, 4-9 p.m.There's no substitute for coming home after a long hard days work, slipping into some fat pants and picking up the good ol' remote control for a rousing game of Halo 2, Gears of War, or Red Dead Revolver on your Xbox. There's just something about first person shooter games--blasting away the opponent with an imaginary AK47 then reloading for more--that makes the heart sing. Now you can experience the real thing (death free!) at the newly constructed third season of the Giant Paintball Park at OC Fairgrounds. It's the perfect way to combine that passion for fat pants, guns and hurting your friends all while loosing the pronounced gut you've obtained after years of holding that controller.
OC Fairgrounds, 88 Fair Dr., Costa Mesa, CA; 714-708-1500
Dad's Day Beer Brunch, Sunday, 9 a.m.This year why not give your father something he'd actually enjoy? Well, Dad's Day Beer Brunch features a two-hour yacht cruise along Newport Harbor, free-flowing bubblies and beers, and a three-course meal. Plus, live entertainment is included! Yay!
Hornblower Cruises, 2431 West Coast Highway, Newport Beach, CA
