In the northern San Diego County suburb of Solana Beach, voters adopted a measure to loosen rules for holding parties at a popular community center atop a seaside bluff. With all nine precincts counted, Proposition B was adopted by a margin of 52% to 48%, in unofficial results tallied by the county registrar of voters. The measure loosens rules for parties at the Fletcher Cove Community Center. Current city policy limits parties to 50 people, greatly restricts live music -- no drums, horns, DJs or amplification -- and limits drinks to two per person -- wine and beer only.

Eco-conscious and sustainably produced clothing has long been associated with murky-colored, burlap-reminiscent items focused more on sending an Earth-friendly message than on looking runway-ready. So as Earth Day approaches on Tuesday, it's good to know there are now some chic, sustainable options. From sourcing fabrics to creating hangtags, each of the brands highlighted here considers impact on the Earth in production choices and uses recycled materials as often as possible - in some cases, building an entire line on repurposed materials.

Eleanor Antin's exhibition at Diane Rosenstein Fine Art is something of a tease. Not quite a retrospective, it's a selection of pieces associated with various projects clustered in the 1970s and 2000s. Intended to highlight “existential themes” that run through her work, the show is certainly preoccupied with sex and death and power (in a playful way, as much of Antin's work is), yet presupposes a familiarity with her career that renders it maddeningly oblique in places. Still, this sampling is an invitation to dig deeper - a credit to the sustained engagement and relevance of Antin's varied and mercurial work.

Tens of thousands turned out Saturday in Long Beach for the creative and slightly wacky Red Bull Flugtag competition, in which teams attempt to fly man-made machines off a 30-foot dock. In many cases, they almost immediately plummeted to the water. Though the event is certainly made for fun, the production of each Flugtag isn't taken lightly. Teams of up to five people work for weeks, even months, perfecting their flying machine. Each machine must be homemade, human-powered, less than 28-feet wide and weigh no more than 400 pounds, including the pilot.

Opening day at Del Mar is set for Wednesday, and it's the one day of the year when Southern California horse racing fans forget about any troubles surrounding the sport. Fans come out en masse (attendance on opening day was 47,339 last year), colorful hats pop up as if it were the Kentucky Derby and fields are so full that no one worries whether there's a shortage of horses. As usual, the opening day $100,000 Oceanside Stakes for 3-year-olds going one mile on the turf has been split into two divisions, the sixth and ninth races on a 10-race card, after 22 horses were entered.
