I don’t spend enough time at Malibu Country Mart. Every time I go there, I am reminded of how beautiful the location is, not to mention the people you see when you’re people watching there.

This weekend, Malibu Country Mart’s Summer Movie Series begins! The shopping center encourages families, shoppers, Malibu locals and movie fans to grab their beach blankets and picnic baskets to watch fun, family movies projected onto a giant outdoor screen.

Saturday, June 11th: Pee Wee’s Big Adventure

Saturday, June 25th: Troop Beverly Hills

Saturday, July 2nd: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

This is a beautiful, calm place to bring your children. Swings and a sandbox are nearby if they somehow get bored! Parking is available all around Malibu Country Mart.

The movies chosen should appeal to children who are a little bit older. I watched Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure last summer with my kids who were 8 and 10 at the time. They laughed their little heads off, even if every other joke was a little too…mature…and didn’t register with them. On the other hand, they weren’t big fans of Pee Wee Herman. It wasn’t personal – they just hated his laugh. Blasphemy, I say. Your kids will probably appreciate him more…

Movies will begin at approximately 7:45 PM. Taverna Tony’s, Mr. Chow Malibu and Tra di Noi will also be open for guests to order menu items to enjoy during the films.

Malibu Country Mart’s Annual Winter Wonderland

Starting this Saturday, December 6, and running through December 20, the Malibu Country Mart will be transformed into a winter wonderland, SoCal style. There will be the usual suspects: Christmas tree, menorah, and twinkling lights. But on each of the December Saturdays before Christmas there will also be special activities.

Victorian carolers will stroll through the Mart, singing holiday favorites while children participate in holiday-themed activities such as stocking and dreidel decorating, face painting, and homemade cookie decorating.

And for the older kids and parents, the stores in Malibu Country Mart will be running holiday specials. If you’ve never bothered to stop at the Mart on your way to somewhere else, trust me. It’s worth it. In fact, it’s a great destination in itself!

See their website for additional information.

Celebrate Mother’s Day at Mr. Chow at Malibu Country Mart

I’m a big fan of Malibu Country Mart. The only time I ever go there is when I am meeting someone from Santa Monica or other parts on the West side, or people who also love to go to the Malibu Country Mart. It’s such a lovely, breezy place, and the drive there along Las Virgenes is always beautiful. My car doesn’t have a working CD player or any way to play mp3’s, and the radio doesn’t come in well, and I lose cell signal, so I often drive the route without sound. So relaxing.

Malibu Country Mart is a perfect spot for a Sunday drive and Mother’s Day brunch. Mr. Chow is holding a prix fixe meal event from 11:30am -2:30pm in honor of Mother’s Day. Did you know that it’s the 100th year of Mother’s Day? Why not make it extra special? At Mr. Chow, every mom will get a complimentary glass of Champagne, and a rose.
