Welcome to THE MOUTH of the South Bay

Hello and welcome to South Bay Mouth.

 Many of you may already know why this is site is called The Mouth, but for those that don't, locals commonly call the South Bay, "Mouth Bay."  The South Bay is a section of  South Los Angeles County encompassing a cluster of beach cities.

For a long time now I have wanted to create a place where locals and visitors alike can see what is going on and available to them in the South Bay.  Although I have lived most of my life in the area, I realize there is so much to do and see that I was never aware of.  I hear of great events and local fun and often when I share it with others they say they have lived here for so long and they never knew about it!  So, here we are... My hopes are that this site will provide something new to improve the quality of your life in the South Bay.  I do believe this site will be beneficial to both those living the single life and to families.  Please visit the South Bay Mouth often to stay on top of special events, new restaurants/shops, bargains and sales, reviews and opinions, bands and music, a video from an aspiring Chef or even just a photo of a beautiful sunset.

Stay tuned for updates and posts and please leave comments and share us with your friends.

Frames and Canvas at Aaron Brothers

This is the last week for the "Penny Sale" at Aaron Brothers.  The Penny Sale allows you to purchase any frame or canvas and get the second one for 1 PENNY.  For any artists or photographers out there this is a pretty good deal to get you set up for the year.  I am sure many of you had some great photos taken over the holidays, now you have no excused as to why you can not frame them.  The sale ends on January, 24th.

Farmers Markets in the South Bay

Fruit Market, Radom, Poland 2007

I do not know about you, but I find something therapeutic and lovely about shopping at Farmers Markets.  Whenever I travel to other countries, one of my favorite things to do is to shop at local street markets in search of the freshest foods or the bizarre.  For about a year I also volunteered through the Grain Project to create and run a FM in Santa Ana.  When I am home I equally love the Farmers Markets to get my fresh and often organic produce. Lately I find myself rarely making it to the market anymore because I seem to miss when it is going on.  Well, rather then beat myself up for missing the Torrance Farmers Market I decided I should see when and where other local Farmers Markets take place.  Now I can shop at a Farmers Market almost everyday of the week!  (I am going to organize them by days of the week)

PIN UP Fashion Show next weekend

So many of my girlfriends and other ladies in the South Bay are big fans of Pin-Up fashion.  I saw this event for a  Pin-Up Fashion Show happening next weekend, January 24th, at the Warner Grand Theater in San Pedro and thought I would share.  This sounds like a fun and different way to spend a night out with the girls with the cocktail reception starting at 6pm and the show at 7pm.
