Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

The one, undisputed leader
The one, undisputed leader

It is common knowledge in our industry that there is one undisputed leader in reporting on the topics, businesses and trends that impact all of us the most, and it is shop-eat-surf.com. Their access to those who make our industry happen is second to none, and we value not only the content of their reporting but the editorial thought on what it all means both in the present as well as the future. If we were asked to give a rating, it would be five out of five stars.

Checking out The District in Tustin

By Tiffany Montgomery
July 26, 2007 8:24 AM

Wow, is it big. The developer says its about 1 million square feet of retail and it feels that way. It's spread out into different quadrants - kind of like The Market Place in Tustin and Irvine. You definitely need a car to reach different areas. Stores and restaurants are starting to open. There are all the usual big box stores: Lowe's, Petsmart, Costco, Target plus a new AMC movie complex. The Target, which opens Saturday (7/29), has those cool red balls in front.

Thankfully for coffee they turned to Peet's instead of Starbucks. And Panera Bread is there with its free WiFi and healthy menu.

The store I'm most excited about: Whole Foods. The new location is 60,000 square feet with a wine and tapas bar, expanded take out food section and eating areas, plus a wider selection of groceries. Mark your calendars for opening day, Aug. 29.

While many of the big box stores can be found all over Orange County, the center is still nice. Hard to find your way into, but nice. If you're driving north on Jamboree Road it's virtually impossible to reach without pulling a U-turn if you've already passed Barranca Parkway. Driving south on Jamboree from the Santa Ana (I-5) Freeway, you exit on Warner Avenue and take this strange, looping route.

A few of the restaurants are worth noting. Still under construction are The Winery - a new venture for J.C. Clow, who used to manage the Morton's near South Coast Plaza - and JT Schmid's.

Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-b-que opened at the end of May. I talked to owner Craig Hoffman this week to see how things are going. He's a cool guy with an interesting story. See the above entry for more details.
