Malibu will welcome another restaurant along Pacific Coast Highway, Tavern 1 American Grill, in early June.

“There’s no barbecue out in Malibu,” Gonzalez said. “We’ll be the only ones. So we’re hoping to fill a need out there.”

Malibu resident Diane Prince has no apprehension to say she wears the same clothes as her 11-, 13- and 15-year-old daughters. 

In fact, she believes that is the beauty of her women’s contemporary clothing company Winnie & Kat — it empowers women not just to own their style, but to own their independence, as well.

“All three of my daughters wear the pieces differently,” Prince said. “And that’s part of the fun — seeing how everybody translates their own style. That’s the biggest reason I started [Winnie & Kat]; I knew my daughters were watching me.”
