2012 Chamber Holiday Regional Mixer at Rolling Hills Country Club

These photos are from the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce Holiday Regional Mixer which was held last night, December 4, at the Rolling Hills Country Club in Rolling Hills Estates, CA. This was our second time attending the holiday regional mixer and I have to say, it is one of my favorite events of the year as far as the Chamber of Commerce is concerned. There was plenty of networking opportunities available with Chamber members representing Carson, El Segundo, Gardena Valley, Harbor City/Harbor Gateway, Hawthorne, Hermosa Beach, Lawndale, LAX Coastal Area, Lomita, Manhattan Beach, Palos Verdes Peninsula, Redondo Beach, San Pedro, Torrance and Wilmington included in the mix. These events have more people than you can ever interact with, but when you keep seeing the same faces at different functions eventually you will talk if there is any chance of doing business together.

The Rolling Hills Country Club is a nice venue and while it is a private club they are available for special functions. In addition to the networking opportunities there was a D.J., a magician, hors d’oeuvres and door prizes. We contributed a certificate for a free beer at an upcoming Business & Beer event and I won a tour of the S.S. Lane Victory. I am looking forward to that and taking more photos to share here.

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
