San Pedro’s Family-Oriented & Pet-Friendly Brouwerij West Highlights Free Indie Music with Summer Concert Series: Sunday, September 24, 2017 BROUWERIJ WEST’S FREE INDEPENDENT SUMMER MUSIC SERIES CONTINUES POPFUJI IV: 2017

Brouwerij West’s family-friendly and pets welcome summer concert series, Popfuji, continues with its 4th free day of local indie music of the summer on Sunday, September 24rd from 12:00 p.m. – 8:00 pm.

The September line-up features:

Caught a Ghost: Already influential in the music world with their songs featured in HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”, Fox’s “Vampire Diaries” and CBS’s “The Blacklist”, the Los Angeles-based indie electro soul band classify their sound as a 21st-Century take on blue-eyed soul. Elements of their songwriting embody classic Motown and Stax/Volt arrangements while also being influenced by dubstep, 90s rap, and contemporary electronica.

Hearty Har: Brothers Tyler and Shane Fogerty, sons of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s John Fogerty, have forged their own musical path along with bandmembers Will Van Santen, Jesse Wilson and Marcus Högsta. The group released their first single this year “Can’t Keep Waiting.” LA Weekly says, “(It) lands somewhere between Tame Impala and Sly & the Family Stone and gives a taste of what’s to come: sexy, crunchy riffs, caressed by analog production, and drums that roll and shake like the waves of the ocean.”

Sadgirl: The Los Angeles group was formed by Misha Lindies (guitar/vocals), Paul Caruso (drums) and Dakota Peterson (bass) along the Pacific coast before venturing into LA’s indie music scene. Indie music site Oh My Rockiness’ called them “one of LA’s hardest working bands.” The lo-fi surf-wop trio has been making waves with songwriting that they define as a “twisted marriage between Roy Orbison and The Cramps (ordained by Link Wray).”

Bombón: The talented San Pedro-based trio Bombón is bringing their “surf rock and roll” talents back to Brouwerij West. Consisting of Angela Ramos, Paloma Bañuelos, and Jerice Campbell, the three ladies have re-envisioned the surf-rock genre, adding a dose of smart punk rock attitude. Razorcake Magazine described them as “[a] band that works on vastly different levels, yet comes together in a completely harmonious way,” while LA Record said “[they] ride the line between the charm of Beach Blanket Bingo and the soundtrack that might accompany Link Wray surfing on a coffin.”

The Gloomies: After the release of their first single, “LSD,” in 2015, Los Angeles-based The Gloomies released their first EP, The Blackout, which details the band’s different state of mind in moving away from Southern California beaches into the vast inland expanses of the state’s low country desert. The lead single “Bleached Out” personifies the band’s newfound spirit. Their music is a bit of Beach Boys meets Blondie as if directed by Lou Reed. “A lot of friends who heard ‘LSD’ first might be surprised by Blackout,” states lead singer Andy Craig. “But it was important to me that these songs come out now and together on this record. It felt right.” Since the release of “LSD,” The Gloomies have shared the stage with Hinds, Public Access TV, Day Wave, and recently played a month-long residency at San Diego’s Soda Bar where they received recognition from KCRW and NME.

Other bands will be added to the lineup.

Food Trucks will include a selection of Brouwerij West’s favorites:

Brouwerij West’s Tasting Room and courtyard are now open seven days a week: Monday – Thursday, 4:00 pm – 9:00 pm; Friday – Saturday, noon – 10:00 pm and Sunday, noon – 9:00 pm, with food trucks in the courtyard providing food options each day.

Brouwerij West is a unique craft brewery and venue located in the San Pedro neighborhood of Los Angeles. Brouwerij West was founded in 2010 and opened its San Pedro brewery in February 2016 in a former Port Warehouse originally built by the U.S. Navy during World War II. Brouwerij West’s operation encompasses 26,000 sq. ft. of the Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles facility, including 8,000 sq. ft. devoted to visitor use for its Tasting Room and events, as well as a 17,000-sq. ft. outdoor courtyard / beer garden. Brouwerij West brews its beers using traditional ingredients and methods mixed with creative inspiration to produce its take on classic Belgian-style and farmhouse ales. Brouwerij West’s new facility is covered with solar panels and generates more electricity than it uses, and its mash filter-based brewhouse uses 30% less water than traditional breweries.

 San Pedro and the Los Angeles Waterfront:

The Los Angeles Waterfront district and the LA neighborhood of San Pedro are currently going through a major revitalization effort lead by the Port of Los Angeles and public and private developers.  Part of this plan includes the complex which Brouwerij West is a part of, CRAFTED at the Port of Los Angeles, whose first phase is a large-scale permanent craft marketplace home to hundreds of individual craft-artists, designers, and artisanal food makers that is currently open Friday-Sunday (learn more at craftedportla.com).  The classic Ports O’ Call Village will also be transforming in the coming years to become the San Pedro Public Market (more info at yourlawaterfront.com), and the development of AltaSea, a 35-acre campus devoted to ocean-based education and businesses (altasea.org) is underway.  For more information, visit http://www.lawaterfront.org/.

The 4-day event will feature some of L.A.’s best gourmet food trucks, a beer garden and daily interactive seminars on a variety of topics.

Office Depot Foundation Donates 100,000 Sackpacks With School Supplies In 17th Year of Its National Backpack Program

ODF Program Logos

For the past 17 years, the Office Depot Foundation has donated more than 4 million sackpacks to children around the world as part of its National Backpack Program. This summer, the Foundation, which is the independent charitable giving arm of Office Depot, Inc., will be donating 100,000 colorful new sackpacks to nonprofit organizations, schools and agencies across the United States and internationally.

 

“It is our mission to make sure that every child has the right tools to achieve success in school,” said Mary Wong, president of the Office Depot Foundation. “School is challenging enough on its own, and when you’re unable to come prepared with the basic essentials for learning, it’s nearly impossible. We want to give every kid a fair chance.”

 

To deliver sackpacks directly to children, the Foundation is hosting Back-to-School celebrations in select cities across the U.S. in July and August. This year, in addition to donating sackpacks to children who need them most, the Foundation is highlighting the importance of STEM and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) programs in our nation’s schools. To encourage kids to explore these important curriculums, the Foundation has partnered with Captain Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour, America’s first African American female combat pilot, who will make special guest appearances at the Foundation’s Back-To-School celebrations in Los Angeles and Chicago.

 

Thousands more sackpacks are being given to kids through the Office Depot Foundation’s continuing partnerships with a number of nonprofit organizations serving children nationally and globally. The Foundation is collaborating with Food For The Poor, Feed the Children, the National Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Association, the National Foundation for Women Legislators and the AARP Foundation.

 

The specially designed, drawstring-style sackpacks come in seven bright and fun colors. Each one includes a zippered pouch containing a pen, pencil, pencil sharpener, eraser, six-inch ruler and four crayons.

 

More information about the National Backpack Program can be found on the Office Depot Foundation’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/officedepotfoundation.

You can follow the Foundation on Twitter @OfficeDepotFndn; the National Backpack Program’s hashtag is #ODFcares. The Foundation is also on Instagram: @officedepotfoundation.

“We are thrilled to have The Habit Burger Grill participate in their third Dine Out for No Kid Hungry promotion this fall,” said Diana Hovey, Senior Vice President of Dine Out for No Kid Hungry. “Their commitment and support over the past two years has been astounding and has helped us make great strides in helping end child hunger in the United States.”

“At The Habit we are committed to providing quality meals, and for millions of Americans, especially children, those meals don’t always come easily. That’s why supporting No Kid Hungry is so important to us. We know that with the support of our loyal guests, we can make a difference. We want to give something back to the communities we serve as well as those who support our efforts,” said Russ Bendel, CEO of The Habit Burger Grill.

Last year The Habit contributed over $400,000 to No Kid Hungry, providing more than 4 million meals to kids in need.

“Our hope is to continue to grow our support and help more kids across the country,” added Bendel.

On August 21, Habit Burger Grill and No Kid Hungry executives will ring the NASDAQ closing bell to call attention to the issue of childhood hunger in America and kickoff this year’s National Dine Out for No Kid Hungry campaign.

Rubio’s® Brings Sustainable Wild Alaskan Halibut to Fast Casual Available in New Two Taco Plate, Burrito and Bowl

unnamed

 Rubio’s® Restaurants, the brand known for its uniquely delicious coastal cuisine and popularizing the fish taco, has announced the addition of sustainable Wild Alaskan Halibut to its sizable selection of coastal cuisine. Rubio’s is the first fast casual restaurant chain of its size to offer this premium fish. Since Wednesday, August 2, guests are invited to try the Wild Alaskan Halibut Two Taco Plate, Burrito and Bowl in restaurants for a limited time.

I recently tried the bowl and it is delicious! And, I have to admit that I am not a big fan of halibut but this bowl was absolutely tasty!

Developed by Co-Founder Ralph Rubio and the culinary team, the new entrees feature a delicious blend of flavors with quality ingredients. Rubio’s Wild Alaskan Halibut Two Taco Plate includes sustainable Wild Alaskan Halibut, seasoned in olive oil and garlic, grilled on an authentic Comal, and served on a stone-ground corn tortilla. It is then topped with a new corn salsa made with red bell peppers, lime and agave, as well as creamy Hass avocados, crisp cabbage and Rubio’s chipotle white sauce. The Two Taco plate is also served with a side of “no-fried” pinto beans and tortilla chips. Rubio’s Wild Alaskan Halibut Burrito is filled with the flavorful grilled halibut, corn salsa, handmade guacamole, citrus rice, black beans, crisp cabbage, cilantro, onion and chipotle white sauce wrapped in a warm flour tortilla and served with a side of tortilla chips. The Bowl includes the grilled halibut, served atop a bed of citrus rice and cabbage topped with corn salsa, fresh Hass avocados, black beans, Salsa Verde and chipotle white sauce.

“At Rubio’s, we are continuously looking for innovative ways for our guests to experience seafood. This includes challenging ourselves to introduce new items like Wild Alaskan Halibut, which is a premium whitefish that’s not typically served in restaurants of our size,” said Rubio. “Wild Alaskan Halibut has a sweet, delicate flavor and firm texture that pairs beautifully with our new corn salsa.

We’re excited to add this sustainable fish to our seafood menu for the first time, and hope our guests enjoy it all summer long.”

Rubio’s has been committed to serving delicious coastal food made with quality ingredients for years, as demonstrated through the sustainable seafood found across its menu, daily handmade salsas and guacamole, and fresh produce delivered weekly. As part of the company’s “Made With a Mission”® commitment – to serve coastal food that not only tastes great, but that its guests can feel great about eating – Rubio’s is now serving all natural chicken raised without antibiotics, all natural steak, and all natural bacon with no nitrates or nitrites added, except those naturally occurring in natural ingredients, in entrees across its menu.

The company recently announced it has also removed artificial flavors and food coloring from artificial sources from its core menu. More information about Rubio’s commitment to food quality can be viewed at https://www.rubios.com/food-philosophy/made-mission.

To date, Rubio’s has sold more than 200 million Original Fish Tacos® and uses sustainable seafood in nearly all of its seafood menu items. The brand continues to expand its menu with innovative recipes, ranging from sustainable Grilled Gourmet Shrimp Tacos and Burritos to a California Bowl made with Wild-Caught Alaska Coho Salmon and a Mango Avocado Salad featuring Brown Rice & Quinoa.
