Neptune’s Net doesn’t mess with success. 

That could be why, after more than 50 years in business, the seaside restaurant on the border of the Malibu and Ventura County lines still sells out of the same dishes they pumped through their kitchen on the day it first opened.

Casa Escobar made an awesome venue on Aug. 27 for two very happening bands. 

“We like to play at Casa Escobar because we all cut our teeth at the Old Malibu Inn Dume Room Circuit and have not played there for a few years,” said Austin Trujillo, of Angel City Fiddle Squad. “We love the welcoming Malibu audience.”

Angel City Fiddle Squad played their best: “Dead Grandma’s Fiddle,” “Alcohol has Ruined My Life,” “Dirty Dog,” and “Workin’ on the Bail,” as well as classics such as “Proud Mary” with a cow-punching western twist.

When the moment arrives, and little chicks emerge from their eggs, the parents begin bringing food to the hungry chicks at a frenzied rate. These little guys need to grow exponentially every day. Life is tough being so small. There are many predators searching for easy prey so they must grow up fast!

A man was rescued from Pirate’s Cove near Westward Beach on Sunday, Aug. 9, according to a Facebook post from the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station. 

The man sustained a broken leg while hiking in the area and had to be airlifted out of the area, according to the post. 

Capt. Ralston of Los Angeles County Fire Department Station 71 said the man, who was a tourist, was in the surf, where it was possible he came into contact with rocks.

"It was not a fall,” Ralston said of the man’s injury.
