Summer is in full swing here in Venice. We kicked off with the Muscle Beach Iron Man conference over Memorial day weekend staring our lovely Aussie Dimitrios (Jim) with his fantastic booth set-up. We miss you, come back soon!!
Also new this summer is our Santa Monica bar crawl with Public Exposure: Come meet up with us and groups from all the hostels in the area and check out the local pub scene. Start off the night with a sports bar right on the promenade, move on to the Broadway Alehouse for local California brews and old-school karaoke, the Britannia for a taste of the UK and Barney’s Beanery for some pool sharking and one of the largest selections of beer on tap in the area. We finished out the night at Zanzibar nightclub, dancing until they kicked us out. Free shots and drink specials for everyone!!!!!
If you aren’t too hungover the next day, come see us at the desk for painkillers and coffee, then join in our new day time activities! Volleyball! Football! Basketball! Swimming, boogie-boarding and sandcastles!! Beach BBQs, and bike trips to Malibu! Shopping on the promenade!! Day trips to Hollywood! We’re even headed to Griffith park for a great hike and an even better view!
We have our new summer staff here and ready to go! Val is the Bulgarian queen of the bar and lounge. Want something to do? Or someone to go out with? She’s your girl and here to stay and play! Want to get better on your sporting skills, or maintain the ones you have? Venice Beach is the place to be. Come and train with Kewan and Casey, our new day activities organizers.
Last but not least…We send our love out to Kevin and Sophia, Cotel regulars who came back for more!!!
