US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach

If you haven't heard all the rumblings or been downtown this past week, you might not know the US Open of Surfing starts tomorrow, Saturday, and runs for a week. Get on down there if you love the crowds and all the Open has to offer.  But beware, it is going to be CRAZY.  :-)
The calendar on TheLocalHB has the full schedule of events if you want to check it out.

This mini blast is actually more about helping out a couple supporters of TheLocalHB.

First, one of favorite pizza places in town is Pizzarito at Bella Terra. Well they happen to be one of the choices in the pizza category on the Best of the Westside survey currently going on.   Please take a moment and support a local establishment:  http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BestofTheWestside.  It is a fairly long survey, so if you want to only vote for Pizzarito, just scroll down til you find it.  There are other categories that you may feel strongly about - have at it.   I thank you for helping them out.  They have been a supporter of TheLocalHB since the beginning!!  

And one more,,, another friend of mine (Local HB supporter) has a daughter who is a singer/songwriter.  Quite talented.  She is trying to raise  money to put out her first EP.  If you love music and like to support the arts, take a moment and check out her site:  http://ameliabarron.com.  From there you can listen to her music and make a donation if you'd like to help her make it is the competitive world of music!  :-)

Thank you in advance, now get out there and enjoy yet another beautiful weekend in HB.
