Dine Around LA – South Bay Edition

May 30, 2018

Dine-Around-LA-LogoLast 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.

August 15, 2018

coffee-with-a-copJoin members of the Redondo Beach Police Department for Coffee with a Cop on Wednesday, August 15 from 8 to 10 a.m. at Kaltch Coffee.

The Redondo Beach Police Department and members of the community will come together in a friendly, informal environment to discuss community issues, build relationships and enjoy a good cup of coffee. All community members are invited to attend.

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the police department’s work in Redondo Beach’s neighborhoods.

The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies, or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.
