Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Lobsters: There's still one more day left at the Original Long Beach Lobster Festival at the Rainbow Lagoon in Long Beach. Lobsters will be flown in nightly all the way from Maine, steamed and served with butter. For more info, visit the event's website.

Commemoration: Vroman's in Pasadena will be hosting a conversation about 9/11/01 to coincide with the 116th issue of Granta, a journal that will be releasing an issue about the attacks a decade ago that include fiction, reportage, memoir, poetry and photography. As part of an event series that spans the nation, Dana Goodyear, Adam Johnson, Steve Erickson and Los Angeles Times book critic David Ulin will explore this theme with readings and conversation. Today's event starts at 4 pm at Vroman's, 695 E. Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena.

Hiking: If you want to get away from it all, try a moonlit hike at Franklin Canyon Park tonight at 6:30 p.m. Meet at the Sooky Goldman Nature Center and enjoy a moderate, 2-hour hike with great views. All ages are welcome.
