This weekend we’re back at it again with some help from our friends at Pabst Blue Ribbon. Every other Sunday 2pm-7pm join us for the chillest sounds on the beach and some proper food/drink specials.

Everyone just wants to relax on Sundays and we’re no different over here at The Waterfront. Come kick it with us and catch a vibe!
Our neighbors at the World Surf League are having the season opener contest at Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast in Australia. And as luck would have it, Snapper mornings just so happen to coincide with Waterfront happy hour 3pm - 6pm pst. So lucky us and lucky you we don’t have to wake up, stay up, or do anything crazy for this competition. Suits us just fine. So as the contest runs (swell/weather dependent) we’ll be streaming with fingers crossed for an exciting final. Plenty of drink and food specials on offer while ya watch!
Professional and amateur skaters from Los Angeles and beyond convened at the Handball Courts in Venice Beach on Saturday to showcase their creative skills and compete against each other and LA’s finest at Red Bull WallRide 2019. Red Bull WallRide is the junction where skateboarding meets lifestyle as riders hit a series of wallride-based features. Brazilian skateboarding sensation Pedro Barros turned in the most impressive sessions on Sunday to take home the inaugural Red Bull WallRide title. After party was at The Waterfront but we were enjoying ourselves too much and forgot to take pictures of that. Congrats to Venice locals and friends Leandre Sanders and Haden McKenna for taking home the “People’s Choice” award.

We’re teaming up with our friends over Nicaragua Craft Beer Co. and Bones Surf Co. to raise some funds for a good cause! Waves For Water is a great project originally started by surfer Jon Rose. Their mission is simple; get clean water to every person who needs it. They work on the front lines to provide access to clean water through the distribution of portable water filters, the digging and renovating of wells, and the construction of rainwater harvesting and storing systems in places where groundwater is not accessible.
Next Tuesday March 5th from 6pm to 9pm we’ll be slanging super bomb tacos for $3 each alongside frosty ‘Panga Drops’ brews for $3 dollars each as well. Also offering $15 beer buckets as well! And thanks to Bones Surf Co we’ll have two custom boards to raffle off along with a $250 gift certificate to Banks Journal with all proceeds going to Waves For Water’s clean water efforts!

The greater Los Angeles region came out in droves for our surf film premiere with Stab last week. Shaper and eventual winner Britt Merrick and the Channel Islands crew made their way down from Santa Barbara, plenty notable international pro surfers and local legends produced a good showing. By the time we played the film, 30 minutes later than promised, the body heat radiated above the concrete floors outside at the Waterfront Venice. It was a packed house. The viewers sat in a silence only broken by the occasional laugh or cheer at the undeniable charm of Mick Fanning and his shredding on all 11 murdered-out epoxies.
After the film, Stab did a short Q-and-A with the winning shaper, Britt Merrick of Channel Islands. He told us after the height and weight we provided for our mystery surfer, he dipped into the WSL surfer stats and quickly put together that the surfer was, in fact, 3x time World Champ, Mick Fanning. He's a sharp man with a majestic beard with a noble family surfboard shaping lineage. He also knows how to use the internet.
The crowd lingered for a bit, we finished our beverages and spilled out north/south/east and not west of the Venice Boardwalk continuing our nights in a similar boozy fashion. Good times as usual.
It’s that time of year again and we’re proud to be rooting for the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII (53). Typically we’d take the neutrality role of Switzerland with a game like the Super Bowl but c’mon ya’ll it’s the Los Angeles Rams! You know we gotta keep it local! Come root with us or against us this Sunday 12pm to 10pm.
Who doesn’t love a good crispy chicken sandwich? Well perhaps not vegans but pretty much everyone else is in agreement that when done right, the crispy chicken sandwich is arguably a better menu option than the classic burger. This is up for debate but our crispy chicken could be the exception. That said, you’ll need to head on in during our happy hour of 3pm to 6pm cause that’s the only time this bad boy is available. Well worth the trip to the boardwalk. Well that and the sunset happy hour of course!!
