This Weekend! Red Bull Flugtag, Socal Suds, and Taste at the Beach

Its finally summer time in Southern California!  School is still out and the sun is shining so let the good times roll!  What do you have planned for the weekend? Here are some local activities you might be interested in.  Cheers!

Saturday: Red Bull Flugtag, Long Beach

Long Beach has been graced with being selected as a site for a 2010 Red Bull Flugtag (German for “flying day”).  Watch as teams of brave souls defy gravity — if only for a few seconds — in their man-powered flying machines.

Gates open at 11:00 am (free admission) with the first flight scheduled for 1 pm.  My money is on the Coast Guard team!  Watch the video below for details.

Saturday: SoCal Suds Presents Beer Fest, Redondo Beach

Starting a tradition is a great thing…especially when it involves beer!  This Saturday, SoCal Suds is presenting their inaugural Beer Fest, featuring tastes of more than 40 different beers ($40 admission). 

Check out our exclusive interview with one of the event coordinators for an inside look.  Buy tickets online ($40) before you go;  Tickets sales at the event may be limited or unavailable.

Sunday: Taste at the Beach, Hermosa Beach
Sunday, August 22, 4 – 8 PM
Hermosa Beach Community Center, Hermosa Beach (Map)

After giving thanks for a great Saturday, spend Sunday evening breaking bread with the Hermosa Beach Kiwanis and more than 30 local restaurants at Taste of the Beach.

Along with great food and wines, this event features a silent auction and live music.  Proceeds go to support Hermosa Schools’ Libraries Programs so don’t feel guilty!  You’ll be eating for a cause.  Purchase tickets online via PayPal ($60…tax deductible!) before the event.

  1. I’ve always wanted to see the flugtag live but then I think about the heat & I think maybe I’ll catch the recap online!
