A local nonprofit radio station, KOCI raises awareness for other community issues and nonprofits with "A Taste of Rock," an afternoon of free giveaways, food, wine, and live music. Navigate the Taste's assembly of sponsors and vendors such as Kika Paprika, a socially responsible fashion company dedicated to reducing environmental footprints, and Hush Hush Bang Bang Salon, with stylists on hand to anoint scalp-fuzz with feather extensions for especially emphatic demands to hear "Freebird." Pleasure palates with food and drink, including bacchanalia-fueling wine tastings, before recklessly abandoning eardrums to performances by ZepShow, a Led Zeppelin tribute band, The Who Revue, a The Who tribute band, and Todash, a dynamic funk and hard-rock ensemble. VIP admission includes five raffle tickets and a meet and greet session with the bands for inquiries into the music and recommendations of hair salons that perform decent Robert Plant styling services.
Herb's Garage is a mainstay of the Costa Mesa community, having maintained and repaired area automobiles for 45 years. ASE-certified technicians work on foreign and domestic vehicles, providing a free 15-point inspection with all services, including tune-ups, oil changes, and repair of problems plaguing the brakes, exhaust, electrical system, cooling system, and transmission. As their cars are tended to, clients can wait in the indoor lounge, which features a color TV and a saltwater aquarium where fish flit around the tank or circle it aimlessly to demonstrate existential futility.
In order to receive Master Technician status from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), mechanics essentially need to know a car inside and out. At Mac's Auto Care, two such technicians oversee the operation at all times. That translates to maintenance services such as oil changes, brake work, and wheel alignments performed expertly on almost all vehicle makes and models, with a specialization in BMWs. And, in the event that a car needs to stay overnight for extensive repair or for a slumber party, the shop offers a complimentary shuttle.
Big O Tires outfits wheels with tires from Michelin, Goodyear and other trusted brands–including their own Big O brand tires that are backed by a three-year warranty and a lifetime of rotations. The retailer has been in the road-ready rubber trade since 1962, when it began as a single co-op; over the past five decades, it has blossomed into a network of more than 480 locations, spanning 20 states. The shops’ ASE-certified technicians not only specialize in tires, but also tend autos with a comprehensive array of repair and maintenance services. They deftly change oil, replace brakes, and meticulously administer multi-point inspections, which ensure that headlights work and that wiper blades aren’t actually sleeping rattlesnakes.
