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.

$1 Hot Dog on a Stick TUESDAYS

Every Tuesday for 2010 you can get a Hot Dog on a Stick for $1 at your local Hot Dog on a Stick location.  Hot Dog on a Stick corndogs are all Turkey.  I love getting the Pepper Cheese on a stick personally, I wish they were included in the offer.  The lemonade is most certainly one of the best you will ever have.  $1 corndogs sounds like a cheap and fun outing for your family!

Fringe by the sea in Redondo Beach

So I admit I am somewhat partial to the beauty of FRINGE, I have to be, my mom owns the place!  My mother Debbie and our friend Laura opened FRINGE in the Redondo Beach Riviera Village in the summer of 2009.  Prior to our new lovely beach location, we were on a corner in the quaint South bay town of Lomita.  We absolutely love our new location and what Debbie and Laura have created in their space is becoming the talk of the town.  This week the LA Times did an online article in their HOME BLOG about Fringe, California Meets Provence at Fringe, and we are very thankful that they found us and loved us.  

Have you been to Fringe? If not, what are you waiting for!

MONTE PITTMAN (from Madonna and Adam Lambert) Tomorrow in Hermosa Beach!

Tuesday, February 2, 2010, South Bay people are in for a treat.  Monte Pittman, the guitar player and teacher for Madonna, Prong and also for the American Idol favorite Adam Lambert, will be performing during an OPEN MIC Night at Suzy's Bar in Hermosa Beach.  Not sure exactly what time Monte will be on stage but he will be getting there to be ready to go up at about 7pm.  He is very talented, not only for his great guitar skills but he is an amazing song writer with a beautiful voice.  Monte is very all around as a musician so this is a great opportunity to see him perform in a small local venue.  You can listen to his album that was released a few months ago on cd baby here.  My personal favorite of his songs is called "After the Last Wave."

We hope to see you there. :)

There is so much to say about CVS and the program they offer.  If you have an open mind and perhaps a little bit of patience, you too should be able to benefit from their Extra Bucks programs.  

You can get started today with about $5.00 out of pocket and be on your way to FREEdom!

Step 1. 
Cut out the DOVE Men+Care Coupon on the back of the REDPLUM coupon book in your Sunday newspaper.  If you do not have the newspaper, then you can go here to print a $1 off coupon
*If you can get 2 coupons that would be best!*

Step 2. 
Go to CVS and if you do not already have an EXTRA BUCK REWARDS card then grab one usually on a table by the front door.  You do not have to fill out all of the information today, you can do it later or not at all.  

Step 3. 
Find the RED Price Scanner, usually near the cards/cashier/front door.  Scan the barcode on your EB (Extra Buck) card and wait a minute.  A couple of coupons will print out, do this until the screen tell you no more coupons are available.  

Step 4. 
Go to the Body Wash section and grab 2 bottles of the DOVE Men+Care Body Wash priced at $5.49. You will also need to find something worth the face value of your coupon for the second transaction (bottle of water etc...)

Step 5.  
Go to the cashier and when you are up tell them you want to do 2 separate transactions and use your Extra Bucks on the second one.  Be sure to give them your coupons your printed or cut for DOVE before you ring up and give them your EB card.

What will happen???  You will be paying about $4.50 out of pocket and receive 1 DOVE MEN, then your receipt will have EXTRA BUCKS printed at the end of it for $5.49.  For the second transaction you will have them ring up the second bottle of DOVE MEN and an item(s) worth the value of the coupon you will use.  You will then give your coupon and Extra Bucks and may pay a few cents but you will leave with 2 bottle of Dove, a bonus item AND be given another $5.49 in Extra Bucks to spend.  

You can either go buy something you needed with that money OR you can do what I do and roll it over to get another item that gives me more EXTRA BUCKS!  You can keep recycling the original $5 you spent.  

SO HOW CONFUSED ARE YOU??? Probably very confused, but it can be so much fun, addicting and rewarding when you catch on.  A great site you can use to learn more about CVS is I HEART CVS.  Happy Shopping!!!
