South Bay By Jackie is your source for Hermosa Beach events

Last week I was invited to attend a Dine Around LA event taking place here in the South Bay. I received a call Tuesday morning asking if I would like to join the group after one of the attendees had to cancel at the last minute – and once I heard what it entailed, I shuffled my schedule around to make it happen.
Dine Around LA is designed exclusively for hotel concierges from the greater LA area as an opportunity for them to learn more about local restaurants to better serve their clientele. There are half a dozen events each year in different areas of Los Angeles, and Dine Around LA works directly with restauranteurs to schedule these outings.
Our group consisted of concierges representing about 25 different hotels from the greater South Bay area and a couple of Los Angeles Concierge Association members who report back to the greater LACA membership. This event would showcase seven restaurants in Redondo and Hermosa Beach.

Italians drink a glass of red wine with each meal…and they might just be onto something. Studies show that for people who have a healthy relationship with alcohol, enjoying a glass of wine rich in artery-scrubbing flavonoids can benefit the health of the mind and body. Unwind with new and old friends during Social Hour. Enjoy discounted appetizers and the first glass of wine for $5.
The monthly Social Hour takes place the second Tuesday of each month from 5 to 6 p.m. at various venues throughout the South Bay. No registration is required, just show up!
