At The Pool partnered up with our good friends at BlackboardEats to help connect people together over phenomenal food. This month, you can get a 5-course chef’s tasting menu experience at Piccolo Venice for only 45 bucks! We will let everyone know on At The Pool when our team is going to check out the special in the next week, would love to have you join!
If you haven’t heard of BlackboardEats, it’s time to get on it. If you are over all of the deal site, hoopla, BBE is your new jam—food editors handpick top spots and send you serious hookups at the best restaurants in town. You even get deals on tippity-top gourmet goods online. This week, they’re offering 30% off gift baskets from Di Bruno Brothers. Choose from one of their four different varieties of prosciutto, roll it up with some authentic Parmigiano Reggiano cheese (their best selling product) and top it off with a jar of sweet, crunchy Peppadew peppers.  It’s an entire Italian grandma in one basket.
So skip the random deal site guess games and instead, look to BlackboardEat for creative foodie experiences and deals at places you actually want to go.
Bon Appetit!

Top 5 things to do on Halloween

Halloween is coming up in a couple of weeks, and we want to make sure that you have the spookiest time possible. Here is a list of the top 5 events (shenanigans included) coming up over the next couple of weeks. 

1) Pre-Halloween - 10.26.13
At The Pool is sponsoring a party at Wokcano in Santa Monica. Come join us for a dance party, food & drink specials, and a DJ spinning from 8pm-2am. 

2) Halloween Day
At The Pool is sponsoring the very first Zombie Crawl in Santa Monica. Think santa crawl… with zombies, this is going to be an awesome time.

3) Haunted House
This isn’t your typical haunted house. Get ready to be frightened, excited, and scared stiff, at the Blackout. The catch - you have to enter alone. 

4) Scariest Ride in LA
The Haunted Hayride showcases the dark arts, murder, arson, witchcraft, and everything else creepy into one long hay ride.

5) Theme Parks
Theme parks aren’t just for kids. When Halloween comes around, it’s fair game for anyone. Check out how all the theme parks in LA are celebrating the holiday.

Member Highlight - Blake Jamieson & Gretta Kruesi [Dawn Patrol Truck]

After an early morning surf session with Dawn Patrol Truck co-founder, Blake Jamieson, I was reminded why DPT is going to be a hit with the surf community. Dawn Patrol Truck combines the food truck business model with a mobile surf shop. After a few hours of surfing that morning – I would have given anything for a coffee and big breakfast burrito!

In addition to selling breakfast, DPT plans to stock all the surf accessories you might forget. I had forgotten wax that morning, but luckily Blake had some to spare.

Blake Jamieson and Gretta Kruesi are stoked to make Dawn Patrol Truck a reality. After a successful fundraising campaign on Indiegogo, Blake and Gretta are working to get the vehicle customized and secure the necessary permits. So far, the truck looks great! DPT Co-Founders decided that the truck should resemble the vintage woodie surf wagons that have always been popular in the surf community.

Dawn Patrol Truck is intended to make life just a little easier for Southern California surfers. If the business model proves successful, Blake and Gretta have plans for an entire fleet of Dawn Patrol Trucks!

We at At The Pool applaud Blake and Gretta, because their goal is to create a stronger community with the people around them.  Dawn Patrol Truck will be a great place for surfers to meet like-minded people. Hopefully these new friendships will extend beyond sharing the love of surfing – just like the relationships created at At The Pool.

Want to keep tabs on Dawn Patrol Truck’s progress? Check them out on Facebook or the Dawn Patrol Truck website.
