Completely Pickled brings its locally-made fare to the MB Farmers Market.
- What do you like about downtown Manhattan Beach? Do you like the independent merchants who bring a unique vibe to our beachside downtown? On Monday, Jan. 12 from 6-8 p.m. at the Joslyn Community Center, community members can make an impact on the downtown area's future by attending a public reception at which the city-hired Urban Land Institute will take input on what residents envision their future downtown to look like. A five-member advisory panel from ULI will spend time in Manhattan Beach to assess what people want their downtown to be. Then, on Friday, Jan. 16 from 9-11:30 a.m. at Joslyn Community Center, the ULI panel will present their findings.
- Download and print this flyer and take it with you when you eat at Johnny Rockets in January, and the Manhattan Beach location will donate 15% of your bill to Manhattan Beach Middle School. According to a post on the MBMS website, "Every 10 days there will be a raffle prize. Prizes include a Spectrum Club Pool Party & (2) Bday Parties hosted by Johnny Rockets."
