    Local Donations with Low Overhead

    I'm looking to donate cash to a local organization that's helping during the pandemic, but want to choose one that has a relatively low overhead where the majority of money would go to those in need and not for the organization's expenses. Does anyone have recommendations?

    Local Parks with BBQs

    I'm looking to host a birthday party at one of Santa Barbara's beautiful parks, but I'd like advice from edhatters about which park would be the best fit? It's an adult party and we'd like to BBQ so someplace that has built in BBQs or where we're allowed to bring our own. Tucker's Grove, Shoreline, Rocky Nook? Where do you all recommend?

    Lawyer to Litigate Against City

    I was hoping to inquire the Edhat community about finding a good lawyer. My particular situation would involve litigation against the city, specifically in regards to an unethical workplace where emotional distress occurs and illegal activity happens. As is obvious, I'm not certain which type of litigator can take on my case, which does concern itself with discrimination, nepotism, drug use by fellow employees, amongst other complaints and concerns. Just FYI, I am not the only person (as in, city employee) willing to sue.
