It seems like Mondays have such a negative connotation until football season arrives and then suddenly friends are calling each other with the inevitable question, “Where are you watching the game tonight?”
Obvious answers for many Long Beach residents might be Legends Sports Bar, Panama Joe’s or Yankee Doodles, but many restaurants and bars on the other side of town are giving Monday Night Football star power and highlighting some excellent… Continue

As you may know, I published an article
about the proposed RDA development known as ArtX or the Art Exchange on LBPost.com yesterday. While strong feelings abound, I encourage everyone to speak out about this issue. Why? Because we, as part of the Creative Community, must exercise our power in the City. We are a large, and growing, group of intelligent, active, and impassioned individuals and, unless we participate, our… Continue

Last night's City Council
meeting voted on a city-wide ban on smoking in public parks. If you're caught smoking anything at a park in Long Beach, you'll be hit with a $100 the first time, $200 the next time and $500 for each violation after the first two. I don't smoke, so it doesn't really change anything for me, but for those of you who do, how do you feel about this?
I'm actually surprised that this actually went… Continue

Recently, I went to The Factory
to check out my long-time homies, Mulatto and some other cats. This was probably one of the best jam sessions I've been to in Long Beach. I almost died on my way there. (You'll see in the video) The Factory was packed, and with a couple of good IPA's I was set for some good music.
Every Wednesday, this goes down. Also, Mulatto will be… Continue

Great new restaurants pop up in Long Beach all the time and this is no exception. My wife was looking for dinner options in downtown and found this place via Restaurant.com

It is hard to call Armchair Generals' music down-tempo because it is definitely uplifting, so I’ll just get my point across by describing the band in more general terms like excellent, energetically smooth and a must-see group.
Musically, their sound has a soothing, soulful balance of electronic beats, jazz-infused tempos and calming lyrics.
Physically, they… Continue

We are not all blessed with having the space to have a garden at home. Container gardening only takes keeps you satisfied for so long and that is where the community gardens step in to help.
Community gardens vary by state, city, or even neighborhoods and no 2 are alike but the idea is all the same. They unite residents and provide a place to grow our own produce. Fees, rules, and regulations will differ from garden to garden. Most gardens require a fee, and some also require… Continue
