Business & Beer joins Meetup at Sophie’s Place

These photos are from our Business & Beer/Meetup event that we had last night at Sophie’s Place, one of our favorite gastropubs, located in the Riviera Village in Redondo Beach, CA. We had a nice turnout of eight with a couple of them coming as a direct result of our using Meetup.com as a networking tool. Since the group was a little smaller than normal, it gave us an opportunity to interact more with our new guests. Our hosts, Sophie’s Place, even gave Tanya a slice of carrot cake (which she sliced up to share) and we had a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday” sung to her by several patrons. It is probably a good thing that no one recorded that.

Business & Beer is now nine months old and we have been enjoying putting on these networking events. As summer approaches I am sure our gatherings will begin setting some new attendance records; I have met many people that have said they want to check it out. If you live or work in the South Bay, and networking is part of how you make your living, you should check out the Business & Beer networking group; especially if you enjoy craft beer. It is a good group of people and we have a good time, all while finding ways we can work together. Continue reading

Celebrating Tanya’s birthday & health

Wednesday was Tanya’s birthday and since she has been feeling much better over that past couple of months, combined with the fact that she has been working pretty hard lately, we decided to take a couple days off to celebrate her birthday.

We started off on Wednesday at Matsuyama Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar and had a couple friends join us. Anyone that has been following this blog for a while knows that we are huge fans of Matsuyama Sushi, so that was a good start to the day. We then decided to go out to Palos Verdes to see if we could find any whales to photograph. We spotted one swimming mammal, but I don’t know if it was a whale or a dolphin; we did not get a chance to photograph it. We then headed down to the Redondo Beach breakwater to catch the sunset and ended the day with a visit to Sophie’s Place for a slice of birthday carrot cake. If you like carrot cake and live in the South Bay, Sophie’s is where you want to go. Continue reading

The Dudes’ Brewing Kickoff Weekend

This weekend, the South Bay welcomed the latest microbrewery to the Southern California beer brewing scene, The Dudes’ Brewing Company which is located in Torrance, CA. Unlike most microbreweries, The Dudes’ does not currently have a tasting room, but rather have decided to break onto the scene by selling kegs to bars and restaurants, and will begin canning and distributing sometime in June of this year. There is talk of opening a tasting room in 2014 after they have their operation running exactly how they want. The Dudes’ are having four kickoff parties this weekend, beginning at Hot’s Kitchen in Hermosa Beach on Thursday and ending Sunday at The Tavern on Main in El Segundo. These photos are from Thursday and Friday’s events at Hot’s Kitchen and Naja’s Place in Redondo Beach.

We had Business & Beer on Thursday at The Rockefeller and since Hot’s Kitchen is just around the corner we decided to stop in to get our first try of The Dudes’ brews. I went with their Grandma’s Pecan, which is a very nutty brown ale. I really enjoyed the flavor which definitely improves as it loses it chill. Tanya got a taster of their Grinning Face Porter, a coconut porter, which I took a sip of, but it was not enough to really judge. It smelled good though. Continue reading
