It's a popular corner in Malibu, this grassy lot next to PCH. Every interest group with an annual event has staked a claim here - the Kiwanas Chili Cookoff, the Lion's Club flea market, the Methodist Church's Pie Festival, the film festival, the annual Christmas/Hanukkah displays.
Last night the spot played host to a group of anti-war protestors holding signs and waving like mad to honking motorists. A sheriff's deputy parked his cruiser across the street for a bit, then lost interest and drove off.
Next up: A screening of "The Mummy," on a portable screen at the Malibu Pier on Saturday at 7 p.m. (888.310.PIER.)
As my mother
would will say, "Wear a sweater!"
