Easyriders Bike Show 2013 – Anaheim

These photos are from the 2013 Easyriders Bike Show held at the Anaheim Convention Center on January 5, 2013. The Easyriders Bike Show Tour is put on by Easyriders Events and travels to numerous locations around the country. It features 100’s of custom show and street bikes of every genre. It is always a visual treat; even if it is difficult to focus in all that chrome. I made it there a little earlier today than last year, when I got there a couple hours before it ended, so there were a lot more people to get in the way of my photos; but it gave me more people shots to get as well, so it all worked out.

The Easyriders Bike Show Tour continues next week in Sacramento, CA; then two weeks later they start again in Charlotte, NC; Nashville, TN and ending in Columbus, OH. You can find all the details on http://www.easyridersevents.com. I actually have a little history with the Easyriders, besides being a subscriber, in that I was in their first motorcycle rodeo and was in their first Grand Nationals. Anyway, it was a good time and I ran into a few friends. I discovered that Anaheim Brewery was right around the corner from the convention center so after checking out all the bikes I stopped in and checked out what they had on tap. All in all, it was a pretty good day. Continue reading

Business & Beer at Alpine Inn, Torrance

These photos are from our return visit to the Alpine Inn with our Business & Beer networking group. The Alpine Inn is a German gastropub that has a nice selection of craft beers from the United States, Germany and the Czech Republic. This was our third visit to the Alpine Inn and it seems that every time we meet there we have a nice turnout of about 15 people. When you consider that Alpine Village is the furthest south we take our group and that it was only three days after New Year’s Day, I was pleased to see the turnout.

If networking is important to your business and you live or work in the South Bay area, you should check out Business & Beer, the networking group that takes away the stress of meetups during normal working hours. Every Thursday at 6:00 PM we meet at a different microbrewery, brewpub or gastropub; if you enjoy good beer and social networking, Business & Beer is for you. Feel free to sign up to the mailing list or Like Us on Facebook to be kept aware of upcoming network events. You will meet some nice people and probably discover some new craft beers. There are no dues or rules, so there is no reason to not give it a try. Continue reading

The people, bands and equestrian units of the 2013 Tournament of Roses Parade

These photos were taken at the 124th Annual Tournament of Roses Parade, held January 1, 2013. Once again, I have taken too many photos to put in one gallery, so I have broken them up into two groups. This gallery consists of basically anything that was not a float; marching bands, equestrian units and basic people watching. I was set up at Colorado Boulevard and Allen Avenue, primarily on the southeast corner. As this is a very large gallery, you might find it easier to view using the slideshow feature; you can use the full screen option for the best viewing.

It was a cold morning, but that did not seem to dampen anyone’s spirits. By the time the parade got down to us, I think most people had forgotten about the chill in the air. A portion of the watermarks on the photos have been purchased by Got Web Host, who has been hosting web sites for personal and commercial use since 2002. The other half of the photos were watermarked as a donation to the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation, the only charity for victims of Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease (RAD), also known as Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). If you know someone that suffers from RA, please tell them about the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation and perhaps consider making a small donation to the cause. Continue reading
