And in Santa Monica, Locanda del Lago kicks off a new weekly grilling series with spiedini, or Italian-style skewers. The grill will be set up on Arizona Avenue during the farmers market, so shoppers can dine-in or grab house-made sausage, different seafood, and vegetable skewers for lunch or dinner. There's even dessert: Grilled peaches with vanilla gelato. The spiedini menu will be available from noon to 7 PM every Wednesday (231 Arizona Ave.; 310-451-3525).
