Beach Party!

Totally Bodacious Countdown to the Beach Party!


Cowabunga, Surfers! Rad and I were gazing at the stars the other night, and I couldn't help but feel that magical beachie feeling you get around this time of year, you know? When the waves are just perfect for surfing, the sun is just hot enough for a golden tan during the day, and a fun summer party during the night!

I mentioned it to Rad, and he said, "Whoa... you're right. This mighty time of year calls for a mighty bodacious beach party!"

He's so cute when he's inspired, and I just couldn't agree more! So like, everything is now underway and we're arranging this totally RADical Beach Luau for tomorrow night, and we'd like you all to come and hang like surfers do!

And like, you won't believe it! But the local roof-top Fourth of July band will be showing up for the party! So, watch out for cuteness overload, (but, no-one could be cuter than Rad!)

Check the Event Calendar for your local times!

Love, Nixie <3

Cowbunga, Surfers! So there Rad and I were, eating our most favorite gooey desserts at Quake when Rad is like… “Whoa! Dude… I just had a major mind explosion… you know what this place needs? Some totally bodacious bendy straws.” and then I was like, “Bendy straws would be a total plus! But what about some new surf-décor?”, and then Inas comes over and says, “New surf-décor and bendy-straws? Why stop there, this is the answer to my prayers! We should totally renovate the entire restaurant!”

That’s how it all started! And now with tidal waves of inspiration, color and renovation, it’s like crazy in there! Everything is getting a new look, and this means we’ll be closing the doors to Quake for a little bit!
