Saturday October 13th is our next Second Saturday event, where we stay open late, listen to live music, have refreshments and hang out.
For this Saturday we doing something a little extra special. You all know one of our premier surfboard shapers Gary Hanel. Well, his 2 year old granddaughter Avery is going through a tough time. Avery and her mom and dad, Peter and Alex Hanel are spending a lot of time at Rady's Children Hospital in San Diego these days.
Avery is undergoing chemotherapy and treatment for a rare and to this date, un-diagnosed bone marrow disease. Today will be her 5th bone marrow biopsy. Avery needs a blood transfusion every week.
Peter and Alex Hanel are a young married couple and have not been able to work full time jobs with having to spend many days and nights at Children's Hospital.
Also happening next door to Surfy Surfy, the Santos Fine Art Gallery is having a reception for their latest artist Rod Villa. Be sure to check out his amazing work.
Ray and Ashley Orate will be behind the counter at Cafe Ipe aka "Coffee Coffee" serving up delicious coffee drinks from fresh roasted beans in house by Revolution Roasters.
