Let's hear it for the Boys! 1

There’s no place like Carlsbad in the summer.., events, fairs, brewfests, galas, surf contests, concerts, flowers, barbeques and evening strolls. Yes, the traffic is even worse, restaurants have long waits and there are tourists everywhere…but…that is all part of what makes Carlsbad come alive and what supports our thriving community!

Our summer kickoff issue is dedicated to “The Boys”. Only in Carlsbad will you find surfing corporate style. We discovered young executives combining their love of surf and community with their business prowess to enhance the lives of others around them…all while ripping it up together.

I always thought of whiskey as a man’s drink. Guess what ladies???? Henebery Whiskey meets the scrutiny of the toughest whiskey connoisseur, but when combined with specialty ingredients to make a unique cocktail, like “The Local”, it is refreshing, soothing and down-right delicious. Please join Carlsbad Lifestyle, North County Board Meeting and Henebery Whiskey in supporting the very cool non-profit¸ Urban Surf 4 Kids, by ordering the oh-so-delicious, newly designed, cocktail “The Local” at your favorite Carlsbad restaurant or bar. A dollar from each drink will go to the Urban Surf 4 Kids! Let’s do this together!

Men’s health is highlighted this month as well as the infamous BRO-AM concert, hosted by our own Switchfoot. The Benefit Party is an exclusive, VIP night where you can mingle with the band and enjoy a semi-private concert at a local, intimate venue. Get your tickets now as there are only a very few sold to this very special experience.

When you are not working away, parenting or contributing to your community, there are numerous options out there for play and relaxation. Work hard…play hard…soak it up, indulge in Carlsbad and enjoy your summer! We are very blessed.

Have Fun!
