Ballast Point Tap Takeover at Brewco, Manhattan Beach

These photos were taken last night, December 3, 2012 at the Ballast Point Tap Takeover which was held at Brewco, Manhattan Beach. Ballast Point Brewing is a micro brewery located in San Diego, CA. Brewco is a gastropub that offers about 25 different bottled beers along with 30 beers on tap. Last night, for the tap takeover, Ballast Point provided eight of their beers on tap. The beers they brought were Longfin Lager, Calico Amber, Sculpin IPA, Schooner APA, Barrel Aged Piper Down Ale, Thai Chili Wahoo Wheat, 2011 Aged Victory at Sea and Sextant Stout (nitro). Anyone that purchased a pint of Ballast Point received a free glass to take home. We started off by getting two flights, so we could have a sample of each of the eight featured brews.

The watermark was given to Business & Beer; out new business networking group in the South Bay for small business owners that support local business and local brewers. If you enjoy craft beers and live or work in the South Bay area you are welcome to join us. No rules, no dues; just fun people doing business and enjoying great beers. Continue reading

Candy Cane Lane at Sleepy Hollow ready for Christmas 2012

December is here and that means that the Sleepy Hollow area of Torrance has been transformed once again to Candy Cane Lane. Last night was the first night of the Sleepy Hollow Christmas Light Extravaganza so we decided to take a drive over and see if the neighborhood was ready yet. Since it was the first weekend not all the homes appeared to be ready yet; but as it was a little rainy the crowds were minimal so it was okay. You can be sure that as Christmas draws closer there will be more and more homes decorated and the neighborhood will become full as caravans of cars cruise the streets and the sidewalks fill up with families walking up and down them enjoying the beauty, Christmas carols and the hot chocolate that can be purchased.

The lights at Candy Cane Lane are on from 6:00 PM until 10:00 and will be on every night until at least New Years. This is great family fun and if you have out of town guests I can assure you that this is an experience they will not soon forget. If you are not sure how to get to Candy Cane Lane you can use my easy to follow directions; it is freeway close from anywhere in Los Angeles or Orange counties. I recommend finding a parking spot and walking up and down the streets, it is pretty magical. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas. Continue reading

50 shades of South Bay gray; a day at the beach

Every once in a while I need to just take a day off, away from the house for a while, and yesterday was that day. I had been seeing Facebook status updates mentioning big surf was coming and I figured that with the rain clouds that it would make for some nice photographs. Since Tanya has been feeling a lot better for the last few weeks, she has been able to use her Canon Rebel again; so she was excited to join me. Without bothering to look at the surf report, we headed over to the beach.

We started off at the breakwater at King Harbor in Redondo Beach. While the waves crashing over the breakwater I was hoping to capture did not exist, there were quite a few surfers out there enjoying the swells. We then ventured over to the Hermosa Beach Pier to see if there might be some more dramatic scenery or surfers by the pier. There wasn’t. After several minutes it started to rain a little, so we used the opportunity to move along to the Manhattan Beach Pier. I knew that even if there was nothing else happening, we could go to the Roundhouse Aquarium.

We happened to park right around the corner from Brewco and since we had a nice time the first time we were there we stopped in out of the rain for a bit. After meeting the GM and setting a date for a Business & Beer gathering we headed down to the pier and a visit to the Roundhouse Aquarium. It is small but pretty cool. If you are in the neighborhood stop in and bring the kids. Continue reading
