Relay for Life in Huntington Beach this weekend

It is that time of year again – American Cancer Society Relay for Life. It happens to be this Saturday, 10am to 10pm in Central Park.  Entering off of Edwards between Slater & Garfield (by the Kathy May’s parking).  Here is the event page on Facebook for it:  https://www.facebook.com/events/932288793532890/  
Just about everyone I know has been touched by cancer in some capacity, so consider coming out to join us.  On that facebook page, you will see the schedule for the day regarding all that is going on.  Lunch and dinner being cooked by our very own Huntington Beach Host Lions Club (accepting donations which go to the Relay), lots of live music, and fun themed laps.  Please try to come out and show some support.  Tell others!

A week from this Saturday (May 7 from 1-6pm) is the Therapeutic Riding Center annual fundraiser and BBQ at the Red Horse Barn at the Equestrian Riding Center (18381 Goldenwest St).  Silent auction, parade of the riding center's athletes, hat contest and free face painting are planned.  $5 children, $10 adults.  For more info:

nd when you are done there, on the same day you can head over to the Seacliff Country Club for the Project Self Sufficiency annual Wine, Cheese and Chocolate Please fundraiser from 6-10 pm.  This year includes a sit down dinner plus all of the usual distinctive wines, decadent chocolates, gourmet cheeses, live music, auctions and more.  Get all the details and tickets at www.winecheeseandchocolateplease.com.

Have you been to Saint Marc over at Pacific City yet?  They happened to have won 1st place at the Taste of Huntington Beach this past Sunday in the appetizer category for their bacon wrapped dates and watermelon skewers.  I can tell you, I personally had to make a few visits to their booth because it was so good.   So, speaking of bacon, they now have opened their To-Go-Bacon-Bar.  For the ultimate grab-n-go experience, they offer 11 signature flavors of bacon 'buy' the slice which can be ordered to-go at the special bacon bar door. Signature bacon flavors include:  Nueske’s Wild Cherry,  Garlic Parmesan,  Paprika Slanina, Benton’s Country, Tender Belly Maple, English Style Back, Zoe’s Applewood Uncured,  Apple Pie, Tender Belly Habanero, Nueske’s Double Cut,  Coffee Rubbed – If you love bacon, this is sure to make you hungry.

Besides Saint Marc, there are so many other establishments at Pacific City worth a visit.  Great restaurants and wonderful shops.  A must visit if you haven’t been there yet. I’m a huge fan.
