It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

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.

Did you see that glowing review of Old Vine Cafe at The Camp in the Register yesterday and OC Post today?

 

Old Vine Cafe, at The CampOld Vine Cafe

I'm so happy for brothers Brandon and Mark McDonald. They are young, nice guys working hard to make it with their first restaurant, which opened in June. The brothers have pared down their personal living expenses to pour everything back in the business. I'm also happy for their mom, who was the major investor in the cafe! Here's link to a post I wrote about the brothers in July: Old Vine Cafe story.

 

Surfrider Newport Beach Chapter will host a screening of "Lost Jewel of the Atlantic" Sept. 15 at The Camp. Admission is $10 and includes a goodie bag. "Lost Jewel of the Atlantic" chronicles the discovery of surf on the small island of Madeira. The movie starts at 8 p.m. The Camp, 2937 Bristol St., Costa Mesa.


Here's some other news people have sent me I need to catch up on:

With all this talk about the new Whole Foods Market, I need to mention the remodeled Albertsons in Laguna Niguel opened this week. It's their new upscale "Premium Fresh & Healthy" footprint that emphasizes high-quality fresh food. 29941 Alicia Parkway.

There's finally a Starbucks drive-thru in Irvine - a great way to fuel up without dragging the kids out of car seats. It's open now at Sand Canyon Plaza at Sand Canyon Avenue and Irvine Center Drive.
