WEEKEND CRUISING: YOUR BEST BOATING EXCURSIONS IN MARINA DEL REY

The last couple weeks have been a wee bit cool on our side of town, and while it’s still gorgeous as ever—it’s been feeling less like a west coast spring and more like a Midwest autumn. Well, this week, the tides are turning, people. We’re soaring into some perfect 70s temps…and we think that’s the perfect excuse for a sunshine celebration this weekend. What do we have in mind? Boating, of course! And in Marina del Rey, there are some outstanding opportunities available to do it up right.

Splurge on a Yacht Charter
Duchess Yacht: 14120 Tahiti Way, Marina del Rey
Paradise Bound: 4375 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey

If you really want to treat yourself like royalty for the day (and celebrate the sunshine), splurge on a yacht for the day with friends. Marina del Rey has premium charter services like The Duchess Yacht Charters (featuring a luxurious 63-foot yacht plus captain and crew!). They have a three-hour Harbor Cruise that is perfect for the weekend, and if you have three pals to accompany you, the cost would only be $100 per person. Not bad for a day of lavish cruising. Paradise Bound Yacht Charters is another favorite in Marina del Rey, and right now, they have some great specials like a $55 per hour/per person two-hour charter on their 42-foot Silver Eagle Sailing Yacht (with Captain Alex). They also offer 20% off for active duty and retired military.

Marina del Rey’s Best Brew Stops for New Beer’s Eve & National Beer Day

________________________________________________________________________

I think this would be a good time for a beer.”  — Franklin D. Roosevelt, March 22, 1933 (The day Cullen-Harrison Act was signed into law)

We couldn’t agree more, FDR! This Friday night (starting at midnight) and all-day Saturday are two must-celebrate beer-a-licious holidays: New Beer’s Eve and National Beer Day. Here’s the history—you see, way back in 1920, beer, wine and alcohol were deemed illegal in the United States, and the dreaded Prohibition was born (and lasted for 13 long years). But on April 7th, 1933, the Cullen-Harrison Act went into effect and to the relief of thirsty Americans everywhere, beer was legalized again. (Tidbit: Not to be mistaken for Repeal Day on December 5th, which officially put an end to Prohibition once and for all!)

Anyway, here’s the point: this weekend’s beer holidays commemorate the glorious day when taverns and breweries opened their doors and gave customers want they’d been craving for years—BEER! So, starting at midnight on Friday, it’s your turn to pay tribute by indulging in a frosty, frothy brew at one of Marina del Rey’s awesome beer-friendly establishments.

Here are five spots you must check out this weekend. Just remember, moderation is key…so drink responsibly, beer lovers!
