updates for Huntington Beach

With summer right around the corner are you finding that you are having unexpected guests come to town to take advantage of our perfect weather? Most who have guests come to town either have to put them up in their home or are expected to assist in finding lodging, right? Did you know you can make your hotel reservations for places all around here in one easy stop on TheLocalHB ?? Well just in case you didn't, you can make easy, safe & secure reservations through your favorite local site :-)
The direct link to my hotel reservation page is: http://bit.ly/mtin9Q - please check it out, save some money on hotel reservations, pass the word on to others! I appreciate it! You can even call and get a live person to help you out. You are not just another number like so many of the online reservation systems are! They are even local here in Southern CA.

Have you been paying attention to all the work that is going on with the construction of our new Costco? My friend, local HB photographer Steve Alfano, has been documenting the progress. If you'd like to keep up with what is going on, here are 3 of his links to the photos: part 1 - http://smu.gs/kEkLDS ; part 2 - http://smu.gs/iJrb4G and part 3: http://smu.gs/loEcwc . He definitely has some great shots, lets you see what is going on behind that construction fence!

You all have heard me talk about the Pups-N-Pinot wine tasting event coming up on June 26... the site with all the info is: www.pupnpinot.com. Well, this plea is for you to put on your thinking caps. Who do you know (maybe it is actually you) that would like to get some extra exposure by being part of this great event? We are looking for food & beverage suppliers. Any kind of restaurant or food store; beverages, esp wine, but any will do; places that sell edible goodies..... all those work. If someone wants to be a vendor and will pass out "tastes", there will be no vendor fee. You get a 10x10 spot. You need enough to supply about 500 people... a modest size event. You can't beat the deal as most places charge to be part of an event like this. We are also still looking for a plate sponsor. We have real cool take home plates we'd like to be able to hand out, but without a sponsor, we won't be able to do them. Go to the site on the sponsors page to see the mock up sample. And lastly, we are also looking for silent & live auction items. Anyone donating to the event will have the item described on our prize page with a logo linking back to their website. And, let me give a big shout out to a couple of our vendors/sponsors who are really stepping it up to help us out: PK Real Estate, Celebrations Mobile DJ, Albertsons (at Beach & Adams) and Love N' Bloom. Please consider helping out this event. It is such a great cause....and did I mention a super fun event? Besides the wine & food, we will have live music, wiener dog races and dog contests!! All for only $30 (tickets also available on site). Please pass on the word, and feel free to like us on facebook: www.facebook.com/pupnpinot . THANK YOU THANK YOU.
