You don't have to be a local to appreciate the community feel of Eat At Joe's. Instead, just sit yourself down. Soon enough you'll be chatting and chowing down some of the best diner-style food around, all at the home of the original John Wayne Special.

Yes, the Duke himself reportedly stopped in, asking then Owner Joe Filkosky to fix him a breakfast of two eggs over medium with cheese on home fries and a tortilla, smothered in Spanish sauce with sausage all around. That's the sort of fare you'll find at Joe's: biscuits with sausage patties loaded with gravy; Polish Sausage; Ground Round Steak; Chicken Fried Steak; a Hangover Omelette, and a Create Your Own Omelette from a killer assortment of ingredients.

5k-Start-incl-kid

Twice a year in Manhattan Beach, runners ring in the season with a popular 5K run along the beach.

Timed to go with "ultra-low" tides, the MB5K is run on flat, wet sand with waves breaking nearby. It's a unique South Bay experience.

This year's first run was June 20, near the Summer Solstice.

Cookie-medals-handoutSeveral hundred runners came out bright and early for the 5K plus a series of kids' races, from a 1K down to a short stretch of sand for the "crawlers" division.

The race's famous "Edible Medals" are frosted cookies made by a local bakery that's an institution unto itself: Becker's. It's not just the kids that chomp those down.

The MB5K is an even bigger draw every December, near the Winter Solstice on December 21, when the MB5K becomes a nighttime…

116-25th-mb

Things looked so promising for new Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni back in late 2012. Hired to right the ship, he would restore the fire and fun that had gone missing for the beloved purple-and-gold.

The coach also caught a big wave early, buying into Manhattan Beach with a custom, prime view home that's near the beach, but suitably off the beaten path.

116-25th-LRCoach paid a giant $6.900M for 116 25th St. (5br/5ba, 5000 sqft.), closing the deal in March 2013.

After one season of OK results and a first-round playoff exit, though, things turned nasty in Lakerland. After one more season, coach left on his own terms.

No longer needing the Manhattan Beach home, he put it on the market this year for $9.800M, quite nearly $3M over the purchase price just 2

Hermosa-Tall.jpg

They call it the "tallest home in Hermosa Beach."

3410 Hermosa Ave. is an architectural landmark in North Hermosa, standing tall and skinny and, reportedly, 10 feet over current height limits for the beach town. There are four full stories – one more than anyone can build now.

3410hermosavert.jpgImagine a 180-degree sunset view that's not even touched by pricier homes to the west on The Strand.

This unique modern drinks in its views in gulps, not sips.

The main common areas, including kitchen and living rooms, are on the top floor, so you can share those views with friends and relations.

Bedrooms get nice views, too, with the master getting ocean and the other bedroom (just 2 bedrooms in this home) sees homes and rooftops around the area.

The home is…
