Ribbon cutting at Smog City Brewing Company

Smog City Officially Welcomed to Torrance

On Friday afternoon several members of the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC), Torrance City Council member Bill Sutherland and a representative from Assembly member Al Muratsuchi’s office joined several dozen fans of Smog City Brewing Company at their newly opened microbrewery and tasting room for an official welcome to Torrance and the Chamber of Commerce. It was just a few weeks ago that Torrance Mayor Scotto cited craft beer as a new growth industry for Torrance so everyone was out in force to show their support for that idea.

Smog City introduced a new beer to their tap list, Third Nipple Tripel, and had some snacks out for the dignitaries and offered pints for $1.00 off during the event. Owner/brewmaster [Jon] Porter was even seen giving some private tours explaining the brewing process and the difference between their horizontal lagering tanks and the more common vertical ones. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. You can see all my photos from the Smog City ribbon cutting on CraftBeerGuy.com.

Chase Bank Grand Opening photos

These photos are from the grand opening and ribbon cutting of the new Chase Bank located at the corner of Hawthorne Blvd. and 182nd St. in Torrance which was held Friday, October 26. The event was attended by the Mayor, a few city council members and representatives from the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC). While it may seem that there are more Chase Banks than Starbucks in Torrance these days, this branch is a little different than others in the area. The new branch was built “green” and the technology inside the bank is different with its upgraded ATM’s. From what I can tell, the purpose is to allow customers to do more transactions without the assistance of a teller. For instance, the new ATMs will provide currency in denominations other than just twenty dollar bills. The bank has also included a drive up ATM as well as the walk up type for after hours banking.

Chase Bank is offering some tempting offers with cash rewards for opening new accounts with them, with up to $500 available if you open the account with a large enough deposit. With today’s interest rates, that is a pretty nice bonus. If interested, visit the new branch for more details. Continue reading

Ribbon cutting at Sign-A-Rama, South Bay

These photos are from the grand opening, open house and ribbon cutting at Sign*A*Rama South Bay, located at 1820 W. Carson Street in Torrance. My regular readers know that I have been concentrating my efforts in 2012 towards promoting local businesses, so when the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC) made us aware of the upcoming event I made a point of reaching out to the owners of this new business to offer them some free exposure. I have to admit, this was one of the more fun ribbon cutting events I have attended in the last year. Not only did they offer wine, beer and snacks, but they also had a DJ providing music and an appearance by The Soozi Show. I am not sure if they were expecting any kids or not, but all the adults sure seemed to enjoy her “high-jinx” and balloon creations.

The City of Torrance welcomed Sign*A*Rama with the mayor and about four city council members as well as a large contingent from the Chamber of Commerce. I was only able to stay a couple of hours, but it looked like everyone was having a good time and I noticed some networking going on. Looking around the shop I could see that Sign*A*Rama does posters, banners, fliers and signs of all types and sizes and it appears they do it all in-house. If you support local business and you need a sign made, you might want to check out Sign*A*Rama South Bay. I noticed that if you order online, you get an immediate 10% off; so if you need additional incentive, there you go. Continue reading
