The San Diego Shop Run

Between the L&O Anniversary Sale and the World of Dance competition, I stopped by my 3 favorite/standard spots.

Univ in Encinitas. Nick and Brett were on the clock. Always a pleasure to drop by.


Next we're off to Downtown San Diego. Quick stop at Jack-in-the-Box. Secret Sauce baby.

Then dropped by the 5&A Dime offices. I need more 5Dtv in my life.

Roxy aka Black Sushi.

Kicked it with Jay and Darcy. Be sure to check out the new merch on the website!

Popped into the shop too to say hi to Kris and his girly.

WoD tix.

The last leg of the run is Blends SD. Erwin still runnin' thangs.

Nice fit Brimo.

Aug 29: Loud & Obnoxious 2-Year Anniversary Sale

One of the longest Saturdays. I haven't done a turnaround trip from LA to SD in a while. But by the end of the day, my drowsy eyes reminded me of why I never do them. At least I had my little bro accompanying me (and taking the pictures for our blogs).

We started the day off with a trip to the City of Industry where our homies from Loud & Obnoxious were having a 2-year anniversary celebration and sale. Still at it, 2 years strong. Congratulations guys. We knew these guys since the early days of and have supported their "Do It Yourself" mentality from day 1.



Shop was set up at their warehouse.

Customers and fans of the brand were waiting since 5am and through the 100+°F weather. Dedication.

Homie hookup! Not only did we not have to wait in line, we also got a little friends & family discount. We asked for an exception because we had to head down to San Diego afterwards. Thanks Brian and Chuck!

At the 1-year anniversary/sale, they had a guestbook for customers to sign. They ended up printing several of the signatures on the back of the 2-year anniversary tee. Hopefully I'll be on the 3-year anniversary tee too.

Time to pay off the patience of their fans.

Schwagggggg: lighters, stickers, buttons, and can cozies.

Outside people were chillin, eating, and playing a little futbol. Too bad we missed karaoke afterwards!

Back of the 2-year anniversary tee. Can you see my signature? If you can, you're Superman.

Hot diggity dog!

What One's Wearing: Zoo York Nike Blazers. Frrrrrrrrrrresh.

Brian^2. Thanks again for the hookup Brian.

Brian and I both picked up a few shirts. I also got the 1 of 144 New Era fitteds they recently got in. Black on yellow. I love this hat!

Never skipping on the details. I love the contrasting purple satin liner (LAKERS!) and print on the inside.

And here's my sig from last year.

Keep it up guys! We'll see ya next year!

Dog vs Man Dance Battle (Video)

My cousin Carol posted this on my FB wall. Since I'll be in San Diego today for the World of Dance Competition with my brother, I felt this was an appropriate post. I think an entire dance crew should dance in costumes. I wish someone put music to this though.

Aug 25: PizzaBears

On Tuesday, my brother and I joined Garrett at JenPen's house to make some fresh pizza.

What One's Wearing: Heineken SB Dunks

Greetings from MacKenzie Bear and Claire Bear. I love these pups. They're as opposite as can be.

Fresh toppings!

Let's get dirty.

We cooked the pizzas on a stone pad on the outdoor BBQ.

Chef Jen!

Dinner is served.

What a feast we had!

My pizza...looks retarded.

Cheesy baby.

Spent the rest of the night catching up with Garrett and playing with the doggies. MacKenzie is the cutest little goat/ratdog/stegosaurus/baby bear ever. Jen has lots of nicknames for these kids.

And listening to that stupid (but catchy) slippery fish song Jen sings to the kids at school. Thanks for having us over Jen! More cookouts please.

After our last day at the Brea office, a few of us got together at my coworker, Lauren's house for some drinks and food.

I love my coworkers! Good times guys.

Take 2....Fail.
