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 #8” from IDW Publishing will be released on Wednesday, 12/12/12. In “Popeye #8,” Poopdeck Pappy’s got a new sweetie… but there’s more to her than meets the eye! And did somebody say… treasure map?
Join Popeye, Olive and Wimpy as they head for the high seas – and help Pappy overcome the trauma of his first bath in forty years!
