Sunday Funday Ride

October 27, 2014 — Leave a comment

Organized by Santa Monica Spoke, LACBC, and CalBike Board member Cynthia Rose, this ride will be a little different from other Sunday Funday Rides, as they will be riding up the Pacific Coast Highway to meet with the CalBike‘s California by Bike Tour Surf N Turf. They’ll ride to Nicolas Canyon Beach where they will join CalBike for lunch ($10 catered lunch or bring your own). Snacks will be provided.

After lunch they will ride as a group back to the Santa Monica Pier where they are planning a Happy Hour nearby where all are invited!

This is not a roadie race; they will travel at an easy pace but ask riders to stay focused and make the effort to keep the group together. Use your judgement if you think you can make this trip. Please do not hesitate to inquire if you have questions or concerns. There is the option to return on Metro 534 from Trancas (4.3 miles from south of Nicolas Beach lunch stop). Because of the route, children cannot participate unless they are attached to adult rider bike or they are capable of keeping up a reasonable pace.

State Social House

February 24, 2014 — Leave a comment

State Social House opened in the former Red Rock space in early May 2013. The space offers three social setting: a dining area on the 1st floor, a Piano Bar on the 2nd floor, and a Smoker’s Lounge next door called The Backroom where a selection of cigars are available for purchase in the lounge. They also offer free weekly events!

Chef Vernon Cardenas, formerly of Innovative Dining Group (Katana) and Pink Taco, has put together a delicious menu of the best tasting pub food you’ve ever had. Like his Whiskey Burger slathered with Jameson-onion jam. Or his mouth-watering Mac & Cheese – a melted blend of cheddar, gruyere, gouda, and bacon! Kobe Meatballs. Buffalo Wings. Shrimp Ceviche. Pizzas. Salads. And steak, seafood, and pasta plates to satisfy the heavier appetites.

Take a seat at one of their four bars and you’ll have your choice of 20 draft beers (Allagash, Angry Orchard, Firestone, and Green Flash to name a few). Try one of their beer cocktails like the Brewjito (strawberry, mint, lime, agave, and Allagash White Belgium Ale) or The Hidden Gun (Irish Whiskey, Amero, orange bitters, and Guinness Stout). Not a beer drinker? Not a problem. They’ve got the freshest and tastiest Specialty Drinks around like the Sunset Strip (Don Julio anejo tequila, mint, sugar, grapefruit, and fresh lime) or the Thai’d Up (Akvinta Vodka, strawberry, balsamic vinegar, basil, and lemon).

You can smoke here with no one to make you feel guilty. It’s allowed! Located right next door, they’ve managed to find a safe place for smokers to feel welcome and loved without offending our diners next door. They have open air lounge seating under the stars. Or sit in their Cigar Bar and enjoy the head on views of the Sunset Strip. Didn’t bring anything to smoke? Don’t worry, they have a large selection of cigars and cigarettes to satisfy your craving.

LAPRAAC is the history, the social outlet, the fitness arm of the Los Angeles Police Department. Of all the organizations surrounding the Los Angeles Police Department, LAPRAAC has left the biggest footprint on the Department history and the officers well-being.
