I waited too long to sign up for Executive Edition
I waited too long to sign up for Executive Edition

I read Shop-Eat-Surf at every opportunity, and I waited too long to sign up for the Executive Edition. It’s timely, relevant and clearly “from the industry, for 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.

Peet’s in, Diedrich out

One of the last two full-line Diedrich Coffeehouses in Orange County closes Wednesday.


The Diedrich at University Center in Irvine across from UCI will be replaced by a Peet's Coffee & Tea.


Starbucks assumed most Diedrich locations when Diedrich decided last year to give up the fight and focus on its wholesale business. The Irvine Company, however, said it wanted its customers to have more choices, so declined to transfer the leases to Starbucks at University Center and at The Crossroads on Barranca Parkway, said Bill Rams, the Irvine Company's director of media relations.


The lease at University Center runs out this month. A Diedrich employee told me The Crossroad lease expires at the end of 2008.


If you need a Diedrich fix after that, there's still a coffee cart at Children's Hospital of Orange County and a stand inside the Crevier dealership in Santa Ana.


Peet's will open in Spring 2008, a spokeswoman said.
