Huntington Beach has gone to the dogs!

Huntington Beach has gone to the dogs!  Well, you probably already know that HB is a very dog friendly place.  So what better way to celebrate our furry four legged friends than to support some events we have coming up!

First, this Saturday the 9th, from noon to 3pm come on down to 5th & PCH for a (free) Santa Paws event.  Bring your kids and your pets for photos with Santa & Mrs. Claus. food samplings, dog adoptions, vendor booths.  They are partnering with Waggin' Trails Rescue Foundation for this event.  More info on the site: www.5thandpch.com.

When that is over, mosey on down to Pacific City for a Barks of Love event at Ways & Means from 3pm-5pm (same day) on their dog friendly outdoor patio.  There will be dog-friendly activities, many four-legged friends in attendance and fun offerings from other Pacific City vendors, including Pop Bar (serving PUP-SICLES) and Top Dog Barkery . Tickets for the event are $20 (sold at the door), which will include drinks and appetizers from Ways & Means and a donation to Barks of Love.

The following week, you have another opportunity to support Waggin’ Trails and kick off the holiday season at their annual Holiday Wine Tasting at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort, December 14, 6pm-9pm. $40 per person (or $50 at the door) includes a wide selection of fine wine, craft beer, hors d' oeuvres, desserts and chocolate.  Opportunity drawings, music and lots of fun. Dogs are welcome and holiday dog attire is encouraged. Purchase tickets at WagginTrails.org (valet parking at $3).

Let’s continue the dog theme…..our very own Dog Beach (DogBeach.org) needs help.  They rely solely upon private donations and volunteers. Help them keep dog beach open for all to enjoy by attending their fundraiser:  Dog Day in December Live Auction Fundraiser on December 19 from 5pm-9pm at the Hilton Waterfront Boardwalk Restaurant.  This is a no host event - you buy your food and drink of choice.  Valet parking again only $3.  RSVP by Dec 15 to Lee Love at LoveSurfCity@gmail.com or 714-349-7706.

Plenty to do in Dec to support HB’s love of dogs!!

Hi Huntington Beach.  I’ve been very lax putting out notices haven’t I?   For this first blast of the year, I’m concentrating on some great opportunities to give back and help out by participating in local fundraisers… emphasizing the fun part.   

First, you can do something real easy to help out with our local American Cancer Society Relay for Life (which is to be held August 12-13 this year).  Next Tuesday the 21st eat or take out at the El Pollo Loco on 19171 Brookhurst Street anytime during their business hours and they will donate 25% of all sales to the Relay!!!   Wear purple or mention (or do both) that you are there for the Relay.   They are going to have a team in our Relay for the first time, and it would be great to show them some support.  If you can’t make it to El Pollo Loco that day, how about having a drink at Sharkeez on Friday the 24th?  From 6:30 – 8:30 you can buy one drink and get the 2nd for .25cents.  They are also donating back to the Relay.   This one needs an rsvp which you can do so at kassidymhansen@gmail.com.  

Next up, end of March, Sunday the 26, 4pm-7pm is the Huntington Beach Host Lions Club annual All You Can Eat Crabfest.  This event sells out every year and is held at Old World Festival Hall.  Presale tickets can be purchase at  https://tinyurl.com/jzogv83.   Prices go up first of March and the deadline for ticket sales is March 12, so don’t delay.

Another biggie is the Taste of Huntington Beach.  April 30, noon to 4pm.  This is held, as every year, at the Sports Complex (by Central Library).  This all-inclusive, all you eat and drink event is always a not to miss event and tickets are on presale pricing until the end of the month.  Go to www.TasteHB.com for more info and to purchase tickets.

There’s plenty of other things going on but since these were either coming up quickly or had pre-sale deadlines, I wanted to get the info out quickly.  :-)
