Laguna Beach Vibe is a free monthly publication that's available in over 100 locations throughout Laguna Beach, California. We provide a comprehensive daily entertainment and events calendar for all that Laguna Beach has to offer. Everything from "Quick Bites," "Happy Hours” and regularly featured spotlights on local artists, restaurants, events and businesses are included in each issue.

WEDNESDAY'S SPOTLIGHT: If you've ever wondered about the entrepreneur behind Laguna Beach Vibe, now's your chance to get to know a little about her. Our publisher, Lisa Farber, is the subject of this week's "Laguna Life & People" section of Stu News Laguna (SNL). In a wonderful profile by SNL staff writer Samantha Washer, we learn about Lisa's journey to Laguna Beach, what motivated her to start the Vibe, what it's like to run a three-person start-up, and what she thinks about Laguna's sense of community. Read about all of that and more via the link below.
LAGUNATICS: You may have noticed our most recent weekend updates have included a plug for community theatre in Laguna Beach. No Square Theatre's production of 'Lagunatics' has been the highlight of the Fall theatre schedule thus far. If you're unfamiliar with this annual performance, it's an irreverent look back at the year that was in and around Laguna Beach, featuring a homegrown cast of local loonies.
