Happy Valentine's Day

We are all aware Valentine's is right around the corner....still looking for something for that special someone?
Heres a few local ideas: Mr. Kegs at 6914 Warner Ave can supply you with that perfect gift basket, or you can pick up that special bottle of wine from their large selection!

Right across the street is Absolutely Fabulous , 6024 Warner, where you will find SO many gift ideas. And by the way, this Saturday evening they are having a special reception highlighting Randy Cooper Shadow Art - amazing stuff. check out their site, http://www.absolutelyfabulous1.com/ for info .

Ladies, do you want to get all pretty for Valentines? Depending on what end of town you are, we've got Salon Ambiance at 5075 Warner, or the Upstairs Salon at 7561 Center Ave, #45. Both full service salons. Also off of Center you can find the Image Spa , 7081 Center Ave, for more intense make-overs - a full service day spa, plastic surgery, cosmetic dentistry & more! For the ladies whose men love their cars, why not give them a gift certificate to Francisco's Automotive (7662 Slater Ave) for some auto care - oil change, air conditioning service, etc.

By the way, you can find the detailed info for these local merchants as well as many others in the business listings on TheLocalHB.com . You can also find all kinds of deals on the site for the Surf City Savings Discount Program - check it out and save some money!!

Speaking of deals, here is one to check out - Pizzarito in Bella Terra, for a limited time, is offering an outrageous happy hour: from 3-6pm Monday through Friday, buy one slice and receive one slice free of equal value or less. How can you beat that?! They are the place to go for authentic New York Pizza by the slice (you can also get whole pizzas, and they deliver! They've been to my house numerous times).

Lastly, here is a a request to support a hometown friend to find his way to the North Pole. Some of you may already know Mark Chapman, through the HB Chamber of Commerce, or from his photography, or as co-host of the Miss HB Pageant, or from is involvement in leading the way for the Centennial Scavenger Hunt here in town. Well, here's the deal: Mark is trying hard to win a trip to the North Pole and in order to do this he needs another 1,500 to 2,000 votes to be among the top five contestants who will then be judged
on an essay he wrote explaining why he should be the official blogger of this trip. How exciting would that be?
This is truly a once in a lifetime experience and it would be great to have a local plant a flag at the top of the world!
Can you help him out? (I already have), Here's all you have to do:
1. Select the following link:

2. Under Mark's picture select Register
3. You can use your Facebook login or register a new login.
4. Follow the links to vote for Mark
5. Forward this e-mail to 10 friends and ask them to vote for Mark
How easy is that? He needs the votes by February 15th. So time is critical. If we can send Mark to the North Pole, he promises to bring us back snow! :-)
A very happy Valentine's Day to all......
