We attended our second Bank Sale this past weekend, this time at the Los Angeles Convention Center.  This year we decided to put some blood, sweat and tears into our booth and build our very own from scratch.  We were fortunate enough to work with a 10×10 area which allowed myself to catch up on some sleep in the back with the inventory while Tj ate casts amount of food on the showroom floor.  We released all of our all new gear from our End Of Summer line along with last seasons shirts for only $10.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by!


It was everyone’s day off today, even though the weather wasn’t up to California standards we decided to have lunch at The Grove.  A fancy high class place, with a hidden farmers market which offers the complete opposite atmosphere.  It’s the kind of place you take your first date to show them you’re really trying.  There is a bunch of high end shops to choose from and 3 story Barnes and Noble which I got lost in, mostly in the Lego section.  Take your mom here on mothers day, and hold her close when you’re in the low ceiling, people packed farmers market, it’s worth it.

You should see the effort we had to go through to get this picture.  Hint: it consisted of getting on Derek’s shoulders.

The only fish I’d ever think about trying.

I attended my first ever Air Show.  Well scheduled air show, I guess that one time I stood on the runway of an airport didn’t count.  It was a hot one, also crowded.  With most of the people looking like I was at Walmart at 2am and planes going completely crazy only a few feet above my head I was a little scared.  The entire time I was wondering if the plane was coming in for a crash landing or if he was just performing another stunt.  Redbull was there, and everything they did hyped the crowd up, from their fearless plane pilot to the back flipping helicopter, it brought people up out of their chairs and ready for The Blue Angels.  I’ve also came to realize I need to clean my lenses, sorry.

My favorite jet there, they turned down my offer of $64 and a pocket full of melting M&M’s.
