Everybody likes a good theme party, and this Memorial Day Weekend, Main Street in Santa Monica is giving the people what they want. In an effort not only to entertain Westsiders, but also to raise funds for Summer SOULstice and Heal the Bay, Main Street between Pier Avenue and Strand Street will transform into an interactive Monopoly board game, allotting attendees special "MAINopoly dollars," to be exchanged for food tastings across the street's finest establishments. Trade a couple fake bucks for fresh fish ceviche from Enterprise Fish Co, goat cheese tostada from Manchego and more. Fuel yourself with happy hour draft beers and cocktails, before cracking up in the event's official "Go Directly to Jail" VIP lounge and beer garden. As with any balls-out theme party, guests are encouraged to dress in Monopoly-inspired attire. Nab your tickets in advance for $25—$5 cheaper than the day-of price.
