Though you can certainly get your burrito with beans and ground beef, the menu at Cantina Real Manhattan Beach encourages a little experimenting. Beyond the bounds of familiar Mexican dishes, it offers the chili verde burrito, a tortilla packed with tender chunks of pork simmered in a tomatillo sauce. There's also the enchiladas jaiba?enchiladas filled with crabmeat and cheese, covered in ranchero sauce?and the mahi mahi burger, topped with grilled onions and pineapple.

After dark, the restaurant serves up an inviting spread of top-shelf tequilas. Bartenders pour them as shots or mix them into cucumber-mint margaritas by hand, instead of using the traditional repurposed cement mixer.

After a breakneck start following his brothers into investment and then raising a small empire of restaurants, Allen Sanford decided to slow down. At the helm of Saint Rocke, he follows a passion for music, keeping his life low-key and fostering blooms of fast-tempo rock, hip-hop, and Latin tunes. To further spread his love of music, he streams high-definition live concerts across the Internet and regularly throws fistfuls of sheet music out his car window. Yet to fully experience the thrill of dancing crowds and pulse-thrumming guitar riffs, music lovers dive into the venue's intimate stage shows.

Patrick Molloy's, an Irish sports bar, overhauls conventional pub fare with a modern menu of eclectic dishes. Hungry stomachs corral herds of burgers, such as the cowboy burger, which wrangles barbecue sauce, swiss cheese, fried shoestring onions, and bacon onto an 8-oouch patty driven into a potato bun. Gang up on appetites with three chicken sliders battered in beer, fried, then topped with chipotle sauce or hot sauce and served atop hawaiian sweet bread, a version of sweet bread baked over a volcano. Molloy's also pays homage to the Emerald Isle with classic fish and chips, which combines fried beer-battered whitefish with crispy french fries, all served with tartar and cocktail sauce.

The International Medical Corps supports local relief efforts by sending medical professionals to establish mobile clinics offering medical care, coordinate hospital and emergency care services, provide medical training to local residents, and much more. The International Medical Corps has quickly responded to the growing needs of the Japanese people by swiftly providing packaged baby supplies and children's medical aid as the number of young patients has increased and offering counseling services to address the rising mental and emotional strain of evacuees. To help the International Medical Corps continue its relief efforts, The Comedy & Magic Club is offering donors an evening of entertainment, committing 100% of proceeds to the international organization to fund teams currently providing aid in Japan and those who may be dispatched in the future.

The Lighthouse Cafe, recognized by the CityVoter Los Angeles HotList as Best Jazz Club in 2009, has captivated customers with sultry scores since the 1940s. Chefs complement crooning with impromptu harpsichord jam sessions and an eclectic menu of pub grub and breakfast offerings. The Heart Attack omelette, named after a classic B-movie featuring an onslaught of rampaging monster hearts, is a morning-time medley of ham, bacon, and smoked sausage ($8.95). Evening imbibers can mash molars on the buttermilk-battered chicken tenders with ranch dressing ($9.95) or the R.A.T. salad, a fresh federation of red onion, avocado, chopped tomatoes, garlic, lettuce, and white balsamic dressing ($8.95). Deploy the fire-fighting foam of a Purple Haze beer ($7.50/12 oz. bottle) to extinguish bicuspid blazes fostered by the spicy-cheese topped Bull Dog, a frankfurter bestrewn with mashed tater tots ($5.25).
