Mike, aka German in Venice, heads up to Dogtown to check out the Friday night car meet.




The two big 4th Of July events in Santa Monica have been cancelled.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and restrictions of large-scale, in-person events, the parade down Main St has been cancelled by the city, and Santa Monica College has cancelled their pre-holiday fireworks show.

"It is particularly disappointing that Celebrate America had to be canceled this year, at a time when we at Santa Monica College would love to gather with our community," Dr. Kathryn E. Jeffery, SMC Superintendent/President, said in a news release. "We look forward to future occasions, when we may celebrate with confidence, to host events safely. Please take care of yourself. Stay well. Stay strong! Stay connected."

“I can’t predict when events like Celebrate America will be allowed to resume, or when folks will begin to feel comfortable in crowds again,” said Linda Sullivan, SMC Event Producer and Associate Dean of Facilities Programming. “But when they do, they will be greeted with the greatest enthusiasm.”

Ocean Park's beloved Tower 26 is being replaced today, after it set on fire around 11:00PM the night of the Santa Monica looting.

"The city is replacing it with tower 29 for now, probably swapping them once tower 26 is completing repaired," local surfer Sergio Lira said. "A Good Samaritan saved the tower before the fire engulfed the outside, just the inside was severely damaged."



No graffiti was sprayed on it, so whether or not this was related to the lootings is unclear, could have been triggered by a local meth zombie, but we saw no evidence of that was left at the tower.

The internet is at work busting the garbage that came to loot Santa Monica businesses.

This idiot posted a video bragging about all the stuff he stole, it went viral, the internet tracked him down and posted all his info online.

And LAPD actually took note of it.

@santamonicaproblems was the first to share this scumbag's video:



The internet then went to work, and soon enough, all his info was posted:



@santamonicaproblems, along with a FOX 11 News reporter, of all people, then called out the Santa Monica Police to step up and do something about. Good to see not all big station news reporters are inconsideration clowns. Big bravo to you, Bill Melugin!

All his info was found, including his address. Even what part of his house all the merchandise he stole was in.

And since Bill Melugin has a blue check mark on twitter, it caught the attention of the LAPD:



And that forced SMPD to step up:



Unfortunately, SMPD doesn't know how to use twitter.



We will post an update if we hear of anything happens, probably will have to wait and see if SMPD figures out how to use their email account first.

Santa Monica's ZJ Boarding House celebrates 31 years today!

"Ever since our humble beginnings as a hole-in-the-wall surf shop back in 1988, ZJ Boarding House has been sharing its passion for Surfing and Skateboarding with the local Santa Monica community and beyond. As the store grew both physically and in inventory, the same levels of knowledge and passion were applied to Skateboarding and Surfing. Our passion for boards, customer service, and product knowledge continues to grow as we are entering our 30th year of business. We pass on our stoke and knowledge to our customers and strive to assist them in making the best decisions for new gear based on their budget and skill levels. We have a wide selection and cater to the whole family. Our selection for Ladies and Grommets is the best in the area.

We carry all kinds of gear, clothing and accessories from best brand names the industry has to offer. Surfboards, Skateboards, Bodyboards and Softboards line the walls of our store. Our Billabong and RVCA sister stores next door carry all the latest gear from those brands and have a huge selection of the finest apparel.

ZJ Boarding House is located just a block and a half from the beach in Santa Monica, proving grounds for Southern California’s Surf & Skate culture. We Surf and Skate everyday and share the stoke of our experiences with all that visit ZJ Boarding House.

We are looking forward to seeing you here!"
