Food Truck Bazaar at the California Heritage Museum

Posted on  February 15, 2017

Food Truck Bazaar

Do you love trying new food, but hate sitting in stuffy, overcrowded restaurants while attempting to enjoy your meal? Then you may want to explore the world of food trucks- and don’t worry about trying to track one down in Santa Monica, instead come to the Food Truck Bazaar right outside the California Heritage Museum, ANY (or every) Tuesday of the month!

 

Trucks Every Tuesday?!

As one of the first weekly gourmet food truck lots in the Los Angeles area, the Food Truck Bazaar is held every Tuesday outside of the California Heritage Museum from 5:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. The cuisine served ranges anywhere from Thai to grilled cheese, yet is always equally delicious. The lot normally hosts around five food trucks and there is no cost to attend, with the exception of food costs. The California Heritage Museum offers free parking for attendees and some of the surrounding bars and restaurants allow visitors to eat food truck goodies at their tables. Meter parking is also available nearby, as well as, plenty of places to lock up your bike. Food trucks that have made appearances in the past include Blast (liquid nitrogen) Ice Cream, Chancho’s Tacos and NoMad Truck. The food trucks change every week, so check out the online calendar to see which trucks will be attending when you plan on visiting!

 

Food Truck Rising Popularity

Dating back all the way to 1691 when street vendors sold food from push carts, the idea of a mobile food truck has always been present in the minds of Americans one way or another. In the early 1900s, the Army used mobile kitchens to feed soldiers and as the 50s rolled around, ice cream trucks began selling their frozen treats to kids and adults alike. However, true food trucks like the ones we are familiar with today didn’t start until the 1980s when grease trucks parked at Rutgers University in New Jersey selling “Fat Sandwiches” to college students. Since then, the food truck industry has exploded- with Wikipedia adding “food truck” to their list of pages, the creation of the Vendy Awards (identifying New York City’s best food trucks) and the Food Network competition, “The Great Food Truck Race”. The gourmet food trucks now parked across the nation can ultimately attribute part of their success today to the humble food cart peddler from 1691.

 

Want to come visit the food trucks in Santa Monica but unsure of where to stay afterwards? Look no further than the Georgian Hotel! Located no more than ten minutes from the California Heritage Museum, there’s no reason to not book a stay at the beautiful Georgian Hotel to complete a perfect week in Santa Monica.

Santa Monica Rep Presents “A Christmas Carol”

Posted on  November 18, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-11-18 at 12.49.11 PM

Santa Monica Rep is proud to present A Christmas Carol at the Miles Memorial Playhouse. Spend a weekend by the beach highlighted by the Charles Dickens classic this December. Less than a mile from the playhouse, The Georgian is the perfect place to stay after the final curtain call.

 

A Christmas Carol was released as a book in 1843, and has not gone out of print since. The wildly popular story is based on experiences from Dickens’ glum childhood. He had a rocky relationship with his father growing up. His conflicting views led to inspire the character of Ebenezer Scrooge, who begins the story as a coldhearted and greedy man and ends it benevolent, spreading goodwill. Dickens spent much of his early years witnessing social injustices experienced by those living in poverty in London. He felt compassion for these people and used that inspiration to write A Christmas Carol. The uplifting tale made its way to stages across the world and now lives on as the quintessential Christmas play.

 

Directed by Jen Bloom, the revamped, highly theatrical production of the Dickens classic is sure to dazzle. Performances will begin December 1st and continue on through December 18th at the Miles Memorial Playhouse. After the show the celebration continues as audience members can sing carols and sip eggnog with the cast.

 

Want to make a day of it? Santa Monica has an abundance of great dining locations. Spin Fish Poké House offers Hawaiian cuisine infused with such big flavor that your taste buds will thank you. Another great spot is Mendocino Farms. Just around the corner from Miles Memorial, “Mendo’s” as the locals call it, offers a vast sandwich menu with offerings from the November 2 Remember, a thanksgiving dinner on wheat to Kurobuta Pork Belly Banh Mi, their take on a Vietnamese specialty.

Ice Skate in SoCal

Screen Shot 2016-10-17 at 1.33.31 PM

Stroll the Santa Monica beach. Stroll the outdoor mall. Enjoy patio dining. Then grab ice skates and enjoy beachside skating, thanks to ICE in Downtown Santa Monica. Located a half-mile from ICE, The Georgian Hotel is the perfect place to stay once you unlace your skates and call it a night.

 

Each year as Halloween winds down, workers transform the corner of Fifth Street and Arizona Avenue into an 8,000 square-foot ice-skating rink. It’s an unexpected place to spend time with friends and family, go on a date or host a holiday party. Enjoy the ocean breeze as you glide across the rink. Pros and amateurs alike can have hours of fun landing a Triple Lutz, or just keeping their balance on the ice. Get caught up in the beauty of the sun setting over the Pacific and forget the stresses of everyday life; it’s truly a sight to behold.

 

Skate rental is included in the price of admission. Need to schedule a lesson to touch up your skills? You can do so here. Celebrating a special occasion? Party cabanas are available to rent here.

 

Make a day of it!

 

With so much to do within walking distance of the rink, it’s easy to fill a day with Santa Monica splendor. Santa Monica Place is the premier shopping center by the beach. With stores like Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co, Nordstrom and Coach, even the most serious shoppers are impressed. Reopening its doors in 2010 as an open-air outdoor mall, Santa Monica Place boasts architectural beauty almost as breathtaking as a ring from Tiffany’s (almost).

 

After a leisurely day of shopping, grab a bite before heading to ICE. There is no shortage of great restaurants in Santa Monica! If you’re in the mood for a steak, try BOA Steakhouse for a succulent 40 Day Dry Aged New York Strip or delicious Bone-In Rib Eye. If seafood sounds like the better option, try Water Grill.The fish is as fresh as one could expect from a restaurant located a stone’s throw from the Pacific.

About The Festival of Chariots

The Festival of Chariots originated 5,000 years ago in India in a city called Jagannatha Puri. Also known as Ratha Yatra, the festival celebrates Lord Krishna’s return to Vrindabana and is held annually to honor Lord Jagannatha, Lord of the Universe. Lord Jagannatha, a Deity form of Lord Krishna, has been worshipped by the people of Puri for many centuries. There are 3 chariots present at the festivities, each representing a Deity to be worshipped: Lord Jagannatha, Lord Balarama and Lady Subhadra. The chariots are canopied, decorated by flowers and balloons and pulled with long, thick ropes by hundreds of people attending the festival. Accompanied by a procession of ecstatically dancing devotees chanting the Lord’s Holy Names, the Festival of Chariots is an experience you don’t want to miss out on!

 

The 40th Annual Festival of Chariots in Los Angeles is presented by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). ISKCON is an incorporated religion and legal charitable non-profit institution derived in 1966 with the aim of preserving spiritual culture and helping every living human being serve Krishna. The festival will commence at 10am on Sunday, August 7th at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. The parade will proceed south on Main Street toward the Ocean Front Walk Plaza at Venice Beach, arriving at Venice Beach at noon. In addition to the parade, the Festival of Chariots also includes a free feast, entertainment and exhibit booths displaying the rich culture of India. A detailed event schedule with more information will be posted here as the day of the festival rapidly approaches.

Located less than half a mile from the event, Broughton’s boutique Georgian Hotel is the perfect place to stay for the weekend of June 5th!

 

About Pedal on the Pier

Pedal on the Pier is an outdoor physical philanthropy event with 100+ stationary bikes overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Over 400 riders will cycle for 5 hours/100-miles to raise money for the Harold Robinson Foundation. HRF is working to improve the lives of the city’s impoverished children by providing them with a camp retreat where they can participate in diverse recreational programs that are designed to strengthen confidence, independence, build character and develop leadership skills.

 

The Harold Robinson Foundation was established on the principle that each and every child deserves opportunities, no matter where they stand on the socioeconomic ladder. HRF works to provide the funding and resources to send Los Angeles’s less fortunate children to camp, in a safe and nurturing environment, far away from the stress that most of them face on a daily basis. HRF strives to create a sense of purpose and accomplishment in each individual, while working towards building communities through communication and support for schools and families.

 

Santa Monica Pedal on the Pier gives the community an opportunity to help make a difference in these children’s lives. Participants can register as an individual or with a team, but each rider must raise a minimum of $2,500 to participate in the event (for example, if a team has 5 riders, each rider must raise $500). The event is scheduled to take place on Sunday, June 5th at the iconic Santa Monica pier. Doors open at 9:30am and the ride begins at 11am, with a cutoff time of 4pm.

 

Participants will get to enjoy live entertainment from DJs and musical performers, with food available for registered riders.
