Today I've loaded up this post with one-liners from our latest magazine to give you a little taste of the goods you'll find inside the May issues. From interviews with a chef and a TV actor (she stars next to the handsome Joseph Fiennes and seriously cool Dominic Monaghan) to stories about great organizations and venues like Olive Crest and Downtown Santa Ana's Yost Theater (who played host to the 2010 OC Music Awards). We do it for you OC, so enjoy each and every page. Hey, the temp dropped today; read it next to a warm fire. Without further delay, here are the fruits of our labor...
