Bartels’ Harley-Davidson 10th Annual Chili Cook-Off

These photos are from the Bartels’ 10th Chili Cook-Off, which was held Sunday, April 21 at Bartels’ Harley-Davidson in Marina del Rey, California. Now, to be honest, I am not completely sure if they have been doing this every year for 10 years, or if this was just their 10th one. I suspect it is pretty close to being an annual event. I know that by the time we got there, Lincoln Boulevard was lined with motorcycles on both sides of the street.

I had gone to the Rose Bowl earlier that morning, and by the time we got out to Bartels’ most of the chili was pretty much devoured. I did get an opportunity to try some of the Black Sheep Chili which is advertised to have certain health benefits as well as having multiple uses in the garage. It was pretty good.

Like I said, I got there late and it appeared that some people may have been cleaning up already, but I’d guess there were about 10 contestants. There was live music provided by Jukebox Zero to keep us entertained as we walked around and checked out the booths from various clubs and chatted with friends, old and new. It was a great day as far as the weather was concerned and they had a few hundred bikers come through at various times of the day. All in all it was a lot of fun and another successful event at Bartels’ Harley-Davidson. Continue reading

Photos from the Unity Run Pasadena

The running community is a pretty tight group; if I had any doubt about that before, the events of the past few days, culminating with the Unity Run Pasadena, erased any doubts I may have had. These photos were taken today at the Unity Run Pasadena, a 5K which was held today at the Rose Bowl; the event included members of at least 16 different running clubs in the area as well as individuals that came from at least as far away as Riverside participating to remember the victims of the Boston Marathon 2013 terrorist attack.

As events unfolded in Boston on April 15, John Beatty, vice president of Pasadena Pacers Running Club in California, was at work and already thinking that he had to do something to get local runners and their supporters out running again as soon as possible. He wanted to put on an event to show some unity in the running world. He decided a 5K (about 3 miles) would be a nice run that people would not have to train for, and he knew that a lap around the Rose Bowl would be just right. The problem is that the Rose Bowl can only have a certain number of “events” per year, so this would have to have less than 1,500 participants and a few other rules to abide by. By Wednesday evening, they had been given the green light and the Unity Run was formed on Facebook. Continue reading

Business & Beer does a Meetup at Monkish Brewing

These photos are from the Business & Beer Meetup which was held last night at Monkish Brewing Company in Torrance. Monkish Brewing is a microbrewery that specializes in Belgian style ales and has a wide selection of tasty brews available. Business & Beer had not been held at Monkish in about three months, and there were some massive changes not only in the beers on tap, but they have done a lot of remodeling which includes a new window, tap system and places for people to sit and enjoy their beer. As usual when we go to Monkish, we had a decent sized group with a few returnees attending. It is always a pleasure when people that have not been around in a while come back.

Business & Beer is a social and business networking group that meets every Thursday at a different microbrewery, brewpub or gastropub in the South Bay area. If networking is important to your business success and you are a fan of American craft beer, you might want to check out BusinessNBeer.com. You can follow us on Meetup or Facebook; it is a fun group of people that have a good time and want to do business with you. Continue reading
