Happy May Huntington Beach

Hope everyone is enjoying your spring so far.   Are you ready for Mother’s Day?  How about starting it off a day early and treat your mom to an all you can eat pancake & sausage breakfast for only $5.   On Saturday from 7am to 11am, the HB Host Lions Club will be cooking their annual Pancake Breakfast in Lake Park (12th & Lake St, downtown).   There will be a Pancake Eating Contest, Pancake Relays, Pancake Art Demo & Contest and Photos with Miss Huntington Beach & Court.  Also displays by City Parks & Rec, HB Police and Fire Departments and much more!  Pop on over and enjoy this popular event!

For a bit of education, next Wed, May 13 from 11:30am to 1:30pm our Chamber of Commerce will be offering  another free business workshop hosted by Microsoft:  “The Right Technology for Small Business”.  This seminar will review the technology that will help you reduce your technology costs by 40%. They will review real life scenarios that plague most small business owners. Office 365 and its mobility features will be reviewed and demonstrated. They will also talk about what type of Internet and Voice connections are available and what VoIP actually is. Please join at the Chamber office and learn how to run an efficient business.  (they even provide lunch).   I’ve been to several of them so far and have learned something useful each time.  RSVP your spot:  714-536-8888.

Coming up the following weekend, May 15-17 is the annual Duck-a-Thon at the pier.  This event always attracts a lot of  people as everyone gets a kick out of watching hundreds of rubber duckies get dumped off the pier and “fight” their way to shore.  The details for all three days of activities can be found on my calendar:

Not only do the Lions Club serve up pancakes, but on May 27 you can join them while the Waterfront Hilton serves them up (and guests) wine at their Wine Tasting fundraiser to support local community charities.  It is 6-8pm and for $25 you will sample wines from the Shade’s California Collection.  Hors d’oeuvres will be available along with a fine selection of small bites that can be purchased at nominal prices. There will be opportunity drawings and valet parking will only be $3 for the event.   You can pay at the door, but please rsvp your attendance to 714-328-8661 or   The Hilton always does such a nice job at these wine tastings.  You don’t want to miss this chance to have a fun evening and support charity while doing so!

And finally for this pass, we are pleased to report our vip tickets for Wags-n-Wine sold out in less than two weeks once it was announced ticket sales were open!  We only have a couple vendor spaces left as well.  I know once again this event is going to be awesome.  Come on, where can you go to enjoy top notch food and wine/beer AND have your four legged companion with you!!  June 14 is the date you want to mark on your calendar.  The general admission is a great deal, so don’t fret.  Go to the website, and check out the vendors who have signed up so far and photos from past events.

And here is wishing you all a happy May.
