One of my favorite things about spring having officially kicked off is the chance to get outside under the warmth of the sun and attend fun outdoor events like the Hamburger & Hops Music Festival. Lucky for us our nearby outdoor shopping center, The Collection, constantly puts together these great gatherings for the community and they always make for the perfect weekend plans with friends and family.
We opted to spend a bit more for the VIP experience which included craft brew tasting tickets, a gourmet burger, a souvenir pint glass and an exclusive lounge area. With a few different stages of live music, we were often seen bouncing around the venue ensuring that we were getting the full experience!
My family and I have become big fans of the huge craft beer movement and loved having the opportunity to taste local brews such as Island Brewing Company, Figueroa Mountain, Coronado Brewing, Firestone Walker Brewing (805) and Rincon Brewery. It also makes for a great chance to chat with the folks behind the scenes of the beer making!
Having fun at the Figueroa Mountain tasting tent!
Over in the VIP area we had the opportunity to hear KALYDE, from The Voice, perform. Their fun energy of reggae and rock makes for great festival music!
It’s these types of relaxing weekends spent with family and friends enjoying time outdoors that create the best memories. We look forward to The Collection’s summer concert series kicking off next month!
Hope you had a warm, sunny weekend as well and can join me sometime for one of these fun events!
Keep Living a Stylized Life
