We're all familiar with the food truck craze, but now there's a new kind of truck to get excited about. Pekok Within Boutique is Orange County's first fashion truck to hit the streets. The peculiar name is intended to encourage customers to embrace the idea of peacocking, or "Pekoking": using fashion as a means to attract attention and distinguish oneself. The new business is taking part in the Fourth of July event at the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort and Marina July 4th from noon to 10 p.m. and July 5th from 1 to 10 p.m.
Locals will get the rare chance to celebrate an Orange County film legend this month when the Newport Beach Film Festival spotlights the work of Laguna Beach's Greg MacGillivray and MacGillivray-Freeman Films, one of the world’s foremost independent producers and distributors of giant-screen 70mm films with 37 films for IMAX and other giant-screen theatres to its credit. Throughout the company’s 50-year history, its bigger-than-life films have won numerous international awards, including two Academy Award nominations, and had three of its films inducted into the IMAX Hall of Fame.

As the movie producers were interviewing many winemakers and growers, they kept hearing about the story of Jimi Brooks, a renowned winemaker who founded Brooks Winery in the Willamette Valley in 1998, but passed away in 2004 at the age of 38 from an aortic aneurysm. Subsequently, winemakers from all over the Willamette Valley gave their time to help save the winery, and the following year, a consortium was formed and the winery bequeathed to Brooks’ son, Pascal, who was 8 when his father died, becoming the youngest winery owner in the world.
