Company Overview

The Page 1 status Google Blog published by a Venice local of over ten years is catering to a Los Angeles audience interested in the urban beach lifestyle in Venice & Santa Monica. The blog was started to help build the First Fridays of the month event back in 2008 when the businesses on the boulevard needed help to expand low attendance of about 50 people. The effort was in conjunction with the Venice Neighborhood Council and the Venice Chamber of Commerce.The event became successful with about 1000 in attendance and the blog expanded to cover all of the Venice community and eventually Santa Monica.

Nov 2: Westchester First Fridays

It’s that time… the first Friday of the month!  The ever popular “First Friday” in Westchester is the hottest spot in LA for food trucks.  Check out the trucks, and this band:

They do bluegrass and folk, and a little country western, as well as original material. They’ve been performing at the Melrose Trading Post, the Brentwood Art Fair, at Long Beach & Manhattan Beach venues as well as Anaheim & West Covina. Stop by, say hi… and if you like their music, give them a tip!
