Happy Holiday time 
It is that crazy shopping time of year! Have you done all yours?  Want to make it easy?  Here are a couple of ideas.

Our Surfing Museum has a great special til the end of this month.  They are offering a limited number of $25 annual memberships with some added benefits - they will include a fabulous reusable Hawaiian print tote bag, $20 gift certificate to Dukes, a Surfing Museum coffee mug & decal, plus 10% off  all your purchases in the gift shop for one year!   How can you go wrong with that one. I know I'm buying one, plus you are helping support the oldest surfing museum in the world - they just celebrated their 25th anniversary.  Visit their site, www.surfingmuseum.org or pop over to the museum (411 Olive) to get yours before they are all gone.

Another great (and easy) gift idea is picking up tickets for the 2013 Taste of HB - they are discounted til the end of this year.  Get tickets now and save - for yourself and for gifts.  Everyone loves the event. It is truly one of the don't miss events here in Huntington Beach.  Buy your tickets right on the site:  www.TasteofHB.com.

And in the spirit of saving money this holiday season, when was the last time you took a peek at Surf City Savings Discount Program?   www.SurfCitySavings.com is full of discounts and many merchants throughout our beautiful city.  Products, dining, services and more.  Please take a look and help support the businesses that choose to make HB their home.

Don't forget all of these can be found on Facebook - pay a visit to their page and like the heck out of them and pass on the word.  Hey, you can do that for me to:  www.facebook.com/localhb.  I'm always posting info like these ideas on there, plus all kinds of other stuff as well of course.


Happy Festivus to all - in the spirit of being politically correct.  :-) 

(PS - don't forget about the HB chamber of Commerce special holiday breakfast tomorrow, 14th, at SeaCliff Country Club. 7:15am.  714-536-8888 for info)

Want to lend a little help to others?  Help out our own Project Self Sufficiency this year during their toy drive.  Donate an unwrapped toy for a child and you will be helping the PSS families who are single parents currently enrolled in school working to become self-sufficient!  The drive is currently going on until Dec 17. You can drop off your donation at their Outreach Building at 1718 Orange Ave.  More info on their site:  www.pssfoundation.org.

Once you've done some giving, why not get in to some holiday spirit by joining our Huntington Beach Chamber of Commerce for a holiday breakfast.  Dec 14 at 7:15 am at the SeaCliff Country Club (6501 Palm Ave). They are offering the member price ($20) to everyone. Start the season with friends and other locals and enjoy live music by Da Capo Players as the play Christmas and classical music!  Check them out on their website www.dacapoplayers.com.  Any questions, contact the chamber at 714-536-8888 for more info.  You might even catch Santa or his elf that morning!


And, if you have a holiday party coming up and need a bit of a hand, you can call my friends at Baja Sonora and have them cater.  Their food is soooo good.  Their services can include: delivery to your event location, their Baja Sonora Signature Salsa Bar, decorations, stainless steel chafing dishes with sterno, plates & utensils, and serving staff if needed.  Call and talk to their catering specialist at 562-425-8088 to begin planning your special event.
