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.  



Looking for Something?

Saturday, January 30, 2010


So many of my friends have a carload of children.  Going to the movies these days is costly, nothing like how it used to be.  Dinner and a movie is not even a cheap date now, it all adds up.  Did you know it does not have to be a fortune anymore for you and your family to enjoy a movie???

Some theaters may be cleaner, newer, fresher and less ghetto than others, but when your movie is $3 or less per person do you care so much!?

So by now my readers should already know that I love Frozen Yogurt and my FroYo craze started with Pinkberry.  I have been a groupie for awhile (which I recommend) and have gone to Pinkberry Groupie events with friends a few times now.  Today I got an email that you can now order Pinkberry ONLINE!  It is not available at all locations, but it is at our Hermosa Beach store.

Redondo Beach Super Bowl 10k is back!

My friends and I participated in the Redondo Beach 10k last year and it was a lot of fun.  Some of our group ran the 10k and some walked the 5k which allowed us to finish about 30-45 minutes from another.  We had a lot of fun being a part of this event, watching the silly costumes go by and at the end of it all we walked around to all the booths signing up for fun places, getting samples of new nutritious yummies and some of the group participated in the FREE BEER garden that was hosted by Asahi and the Redondo Beach Rotary Club.

This even does take place on Super Bowl Sunday but you will have plenty of time after the run to get cleaned up and dressed in your best Football gear before the game and partying begins.  You even get a t-shirt!!! :)

Register now as February 7th is around the corner.

FONDUE WOO HOO! Awesome Deal for MELTING POT Torrance

Ok this is by far my most favorite GROUPON offer ever.  I have been so happy thus far with the purchases  I have made with GROUPON and the money I have saved.  Today's GROUPON is only available for 10 more hours and it is for... MELTING POT!  When the Melting Pot opened in Torrance, not only did I interview to work there because I LOVE CHEESE AND CHOCOLATE, but I have visited on a few occasions.

If you have never been to the Melting Pot let me just say it is a world of SIN.  The GROUPON today is pay $25 and get $50 worth of FOOD AND DRINKS (Drinks are NEVER included in other promotions on other sites).  This means 2 people can go and get the Cheese for 2, side salad and Chocolate for 2 and probably have some for a drink also.  The Melting Pot is a super awesome place for a date, birthday or a Girls Night out.  (What woman does not love melted cheese and melted chocolate AND a Martini?)

I wish I could buy more than 1, however I can not wait to go use my GROUPON.  Happy Fondue to you!

Packing Peanuts... Where to recycle them :)

Many of us have been faced with the dilemma of receiving a package with those peanuts that fly all over the floor and make such a mess.  When the trash man comes you can guarantee one or two will be left behind.  Finally there are some answers to this problem (because many are styrofoam and are non recyclable).

The following locations in the South Bay are drop off points for your packing peanut predicament.  You may also look up other locations and more information at LooseFillPackaging.com
