Networking at Noon at Ortega 120

Today we went to Ortega 120 in Redondo Beach for another Networking at Noon. I am sure it was pure coincidence that the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC) scheduled two Networking at Noon events this month with the second one falling on National Tequila Day, and Ortega 120 boasting over 120 different kinds of tequila. I know I was not complaining. I have been to Ortega 120 a couple times, both being on Cinco de Mayo, so it was always really crowded. Going there for lunch gave me the opportunity to look around and check out the decor; it is pretty cool. The food is good too. Naturally, if you enjoy tequila, you have to go there at least once. Come for the tequila, stay for the food. They make tortillas right there on site. They are so good.

One of the owners, Demi Stevens, gave us a little history of Ortega 120 and after hearing it, you have to admire her business savvy. As usual, everyone got an opportunity to give their 30 second sales pitch, which I again devoted to BUSINSSnBEER. We also gave away two certificates for a free beer at one of the upcoming events. I was happy to see the interest BUSINSSnBEER seems to be getting. Will see how many show up Thursday at Monkish Brewing. Continue reading

Photos of Madrona Marsh Torrance

Today we headed over to the Madrona Marsh Preserve in Torrance to take a few nature photos. The Madrona Marsh is what they call a vernal marsh in that it gets its water solely from rain; or melting snow, but primarily from rain around here. It is the last vernal marsh in the South Bay, and is one of the few wetlands in Los Angeles County. As it is July 21, the marsh is not very marshy but there are still some interesting things to photograph.

The last time I went to Madrona Marsh was back when I was the leader of my son’s Tiger Cubs den in the Cub Scouts. Of course, then we had a guide to help point things out. The Madrona Marsh is free to visit but they do have guided tours as well. It is something that can be fun for the entire family. Check out the Friends of Madrona Marsh website for more information.

Business N Beer at The Brewery at Abigaile

Last night we had our second Business N Beer gathering; this time at The Brewery at Abigaile in Hermosa Beach, CA. Abigaile is a brewpub that currently offers five really nice brews with the Full Nelson, an XPA, being my current favorite. The Brewery’s brewmaster, Brian Brewer, came over and talked beer with our group. I know several mentioned that they enjoyed the experience. This week we had a few more people show up than last week, but it was an entirely different group of people. This shows me that our networking group will grow and as people return to subsequent events they will meet new people. That is what it is all about.

I want to thank the entire staff of Abigaile for the pleasant experience, especially our server, Travis and of course Brian for spending some time with our group. I’d also like to thank everyone that came out and I hope to see you at our next event on July 26 at Monkish Brewing in Torrance. Monkish Brewing will be the first of several micro breweries we will be visiting. Continue reading
