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.
What do you do when you’re a new restaurant / bar in Venice and everywhere else is charging a cover and offering a set menu for New Year’s Eve? You do the exact opposite and invite the neighborhood with no cover charge, offer happy hour till midnight, and let people eat what they want. To celebrate our first New Year’s Eve on the beach we’re offering an alternative to the other programs out there. Something casual where you and your friends can come without any pressure. It’s a neighborhood New Year’s Eve and you’re invited!
