Happy Birthday, Popeye!

Eighty four years ago today, Popeye the Sailor Man made history when he first appeared in the comic strip, THIMBLE THEATER. The CBS Morning News, hosted by Gayle King and Charlie Rose, were among the first fans to wish the world’s mightiest mariner a “Happy 84th Birthday!”

POPEYE RINGS IN NEW YEAR WITH SANTA MONICA EAT WELL WEEK

Popeye, Olive Oyl and Swee’ Pea will return to the sailorman’s Santa Monica hometown to kick off the city’s inaugural Eat Well Week. To celebrate California Restaurant Month, more than a dozen of Santa Monica’s top restaurants will offer discounted pre-fixe menus and new healthy menu options from Jan. 6 through Jan. 13, 2013.  To launch the occasion, Popeye will join three participating Eat Well Week restaurants—Locando del Lago, The Lobster and Ocean & Vine at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel—to create “Popeye Pop-ups,” featuring healthy spinach-inspired dishes and recipes on Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Wednesday Downtown Farmers Market.

Popeye was created by E.C. Segar in a Santa Monica studio on Jan. 17, 1929. According to the story line, Popeye was born off the coast of Santa Monica during a typhoon. Popeye’s popularity and his taste for spinach quickly turned him into an immediate health food advocate.

Santa Monica provides a healthy dining experience year round where fresh Farmers Market produce plays a central role.  Dine local and learn more about Eat Well Week and Santa Monica’s wellness scene, by visiting http://www.santamonica.com/eatwell.
