HAPPY MISFITS 

Southern California is abundant in rich culture, adventure, cannabis-friendly events, and the best Latin food outside of Latin America. It also happens to be one gorgeous place come spring. This issue we are reveling in the brightness of what’s ahead including finding a great craft brew, sitting down with the Towne Mayor, exploring some crazy fun in San Diego, and introducing a brand-new column centered around cultivating your own cannabis crop at home—all while we usher in the new season. 

March kept us on our toes with college scams, political investigations, uncertain economic outlooks, and a slew of the strange and wonderful. All of which make welcoming April more endearing. So while those of us with allergies may not be as thrilled about the new blooms, we’re all too happy to bid farewell to the countless days of rainfall—though we’re grateful for Mama Nature because this year’s rainfall did put an end to our endless drought. 

In this issue we are focused on celebrating all of the things that make living in Southern California so much fun. From the lineup of foodie events to cultural infusion, refreshing spring recipes, testing your will to think outside the box in oddly exciting escape rooms, talking about the Farm Bill, learning the history of cooking with cannabis, and getting the ins and outs of CBD, we aren’t shy of reasons to love where we live, or things to expand our knowledge. The truth of Southern Californians is we aren’t afraid to take risks; we embrace change, beauty, oddities, magic, and diversity and that makes everything far more exciting, so while you thumb through these pages, I hope you’re inspired to etch your path in this wild world. 

To wrap this up, I defer to a brilliant advertising slogan by Rob Siltanen as the perfect words to live by—and the motto for April: “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” 

May we all be happy misfits. 

Live boldly, bravely, and tenaciously,
