Sonny McLean's is the best by a landslide! The food is not like any pub food I have ever eaten. You MUST TRY the Bangers and Mash!! So good! The owners Joanie and Grant are two of the nicest people I know.

Is there anything to do with kids under 12? Why isn't there a parade in s.m. like there is in hermosa? S.m.has ocean ave and they never close off the streets for parades. We are thinking about going to downtown l.a. on the bus but why doesn't the city of s.m. acknowledge their lack of events? It would be so nice to have parades in s.m. or venice. I gre up here and its BOORING place for kids. There's very little to do other than the pier and the City of Santa Monica or Venice could do such more for the parents to teach their kids about traditions and culture. There's not a Cinco de Mayo celebration either. Why can't the beach cities see the potential for making more events like these and drawing people in with $ and possibly donating some of the profits to the homeless in Santa Monica and Venice. I grew up here and their is very little change for parents with children. We have to travel to other cities to have fun!!
