Manhattan Margarita

Nothing alleviates stress better than the combination of ocean waves and an icy-cold margarita in your hands! That is where Manhattan Margarita in Manhattan Beach comes to mind to help ease your thoughts into the calling of the waves. Inspired by the South Bay lifestyle, Manhattan Margarita is made with only the finest ingredients: a blend of five different fruit juices and premium silver agave tequila.


Audi Beverly Hills

If the former instance is the case, you are going to need a new set of wheels.

Therefore, let Audi of Beverly Hills be your guide for checking out the A3 E-Tron and help ease your gasoline demanding life considerably by letting you charge your car at work or at night in your apartment building in order to utilize the sixteen miles of electric driving before ever having to utilize gasoline for your longer trips.

Griffith Park

For our Eastside readers, nothing helps a person destress more over than hearing the calming sound of the Planetarium announcer explain our solar system within the Griffith Park Observatory to remind us how deeply insignificant our problems are in comparison to the expansiveness of our solar system. Also, with over 53 Hiking trails you can choose your own adventure for duration of the day by checking out the Hollywood sign or even feel the haunting chills of the old abandoned Zoo!
