A Southern California anti-fur group is turning to the courts for permission to demonstrate at an upscale shopping mall. Last Chance for Animals, based in Los Angeles, filed court papers this week to overturn the Fashion Valley Mall's restraining order against the group's protests. The group contends that the mall's ban on protests is a violation of its 1st Amendment rights. "This isn't about fur," said Eric Mindel, the director of Last Chance for Animals.

About 80 La Jolla business people will meet tonight to determine whether a marketing and advertising campaign would entice more local residents and out-of-town tourists to shop and eat in La Jolla instead of at the growing number of shopping centers elsewhere in San Diego County. "We've become a much more sophisticated county and with sophistication comes choice," according to David Brand, president of Brand advertising agency, who organized the "Promote LJ" group several months ago.

The slow lane of the northbound San Diego Freeway was the only way to go Saturday, as construction along a two-mile stretch through Fountain Valley caused hourlong delays for thousands of motorists.

Already we've got competing Santa Clauses in our shopping malls and competing Santa Clauses telling telephone tales, and we haven't even had a chance to enjoy our Thanksgiving turkey. First comes an anguished press release from Grossmont Center, complaining that Santas are overworked.

But beginning this week, San Diego stores will be the first in the nation to carry a new type of milk, geared to "today's fit, health-conscious woman." "Vital 15," a new product developed by the California Milk Advisory Board after two years of market research and testing, is being introduced with a $1.

To its critics, the plan to renovate Mission Beach Park would sell out a historical site and public park for a Seaport Village-by-the-beach, complete with miniature lagoons, tile-roofed shops and more traffic in a community already fighting gridlock.

Despite soggy, blustery weather in many parts of the country, shoppers showed up in droves Friday as retailers kicked off their traditional Christmas shopping season with early store openings and special promotions. "It was as if somebody shot off a starter's gun at 10 o'clock," said Wayne Adcoe, assistant general manager of the stylish Galleria mall in Houston. "The place is absolutely jammed."

The Wayne Foster Orchestra played a selection of Strauss waltzes that made impatient feet cry out to be taken to the dance floor, but through the dinner Saturday in the Hotel del Coronado's Crown Room, the floor remained as empty as the most forlorn corner of the Gobi. Not until the arrival of the Princess Christina almond torte, which coincided with the orchestra's commencement of "Moonlight Serenade," did the floor flood with dancers sinuously winding through Glenn Miller-esque arabesques.

On a recent afternoon, business was desultory at the M & M Hardware store. Occasional customers, all from Mexico, wandered in to browse or to purchase an odd paintbrush, length of cable or light fixture. A visitor wondered aloud whether it wasn't just the midweek afternoon lag.

It's now three months since Horton Plaza--downtown San Diego's $140-million experiment in urbanity--opened its doors, and by most measures it's doing well, drawing customers from throughout the county and beyond. According to a recent survey by the center's developer, the center is attracting a diversity of clientele, with as many affluent shoppers from La Jolla and Pacific Beach as there are moderate-income customers from Chula Vista and National City.
