Marina Spotlight: Paddle for Breast Cancer this Sunday at Mother’s Beach

sup-paddle

The great part about life in Marina del Rey is that there are always cool things going on. Concerts in the park, Champagne brunches, and amazing events that radiate a brand of charm that’s just pure Marina magic. One of the most powerful events happening down at Mother’s Beach every month is the TBG Champion Paddle, a 90-minute SUP paddle event for breast cancer awareness & support. It happens one Sunday each month from 9 am to 10:30 am, and it’s an extraordinary way to spend a weekend morning.

The TBG Champion Paddle itself is a joint effort between the ProSUP Shop and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Tiffany B. Grunwald, to raise awareness for breast cancer, celebrate healthy bodies, and honor all of the incredible breast cancer warriors who have fought the disease. It’s a pretty nifty gathering where you can get out on the water, support friends & family and be a part of something kind of special for 90 minutes.

If you’re interested, here are the details.

 

Cost: $35 (slightly reduced rental rate) for SUP board rental

Suggestions: Bring a small gift for those currently fighting breast cancer, like a $10 gift card for LA bite food delivery service or an item that may come in handy for someone undergoing treatment.

Next Paddle: Sunday, January 22nd at 9 am — meet up at the ProSUP shop in the Jamaica Bay Inn at 4175 Admiralty Way.

Reservations: Visit ProSUP shop to book your spot.

6 Amazing Places to Dine Out for the Holidays in Marina del Rey (and Beyond!)

The jolliest time of the year is quickly approaching and while the super organized have their plans set in stone, a lot of us are furiously tapping our way through online gift guides, wrapping presents like Santa’s busiest elf and still deciding “do I cook or do I book?” Well, we happen to lean on the side of booking reservations for the holidays. Think of it this way — you’ve already shopped, wrapped and decorated — do you really want to be knee deep in dishes, too? Plus, when you consider just how many fantastic restaurants are serving up holiday and holiday eve meals in and around Marina del Rey, it’s a seriously irresistible option.

Think we’re kidding? Take a look at the spectacular list below and tell us you’d still rather go the home-cooking route (no judgment if you do — we bet your home-cooked spread will be nothing short of fabulous!). But if you’re on-board with the dining-out idea, make your reservations asap because the joy of dining-out for the holidays is kind of the worst-kept secret ever. Happy Holiday Dining, everyone!
