    Demi Stevens, Proprietor, Ortega 120 & Hey 19 Public House

    in Current Events

    Our guest this morning is Demi Stevens, proprietor of Ortega 120 and Hey 19.


    As one of the most renowned mixologists in the hospitality industry, Demi is a force to be reckoned with.  She has successfully created cocktail menus that utilize unique ingredients that complement her restaurant’s dynamic food menus. 


    Demi’s first personal restaurant endeavor, Ortega 120 located in Redondo Beach, currently houses the “Best Classic Margarita,” as determined by LA Weekly.  Ortega 120 has also been honored with awards such as “Diner’s Choice Winner” “Best Dinner Dates on a Budget,” and “Top 10 Mexican Restaurants in Los Angeles.” 


    Her most recent venture, Hey 19 Public House, is a “rustic American” themed restaurant and bar featuring craft cocktails and new-American, organic conscious, comfort food.  Hey 19 opened its doors in Torrance in late 2014 and was instantly named one of the “Best New Restaurants of 2014” by Easy Reader.


    With her “whiskey in a tea cup” attitude, mixology brilliance, the ability to understand both front and back house management of a restaurant, and dedicated guest and staff following, it is no wonder why every restaurant Demi touches turns to gold.


    I’ve long been a fan of Ortega 120 and Hey 19 has become my go-to place for not just the food, but dancing! I’ve recently heard some rumors about other special events Demi has on the drawing board and can’t wait to hear more details!

    in Wrestling

    Jairo-Mites,


    Another legend has left us.


    Once again to recap on the life and career of


    Rowdy Roddy Piper one of the greatest wrestlers of all time


    and cornerstone of the Rock and Wrestling connection of the 1980s,


    soldier in the Monday Night Wars in the 1990s and being able to work


    with individuals such as Sean O'Haire, Piper's Pit including guest such as Steve Austin, CM Punk,


    just to name a few. Without Roddy Piper (the antagonist needed for Hogan to feud with in the 1980s,


    you can argue that Hulkamania would have not been around as long as its been.


     


    My guest will be Kervin Delgado from the YEP! I Like Wrestling group who is having a


    SummerSlam viewing party on Sunday August 23rd at 8PM at Legends Bar located in

    January Jones-Music by Sarantos!

    in Music

    Sarantos' passion for music began before he knew what the word passion meant. He began writing lyrics as a small child while "people watching" in his mom and pop's family diner. That is to say, when he wasn't working and helping his mom and pop at the diner as a cook, dishwasher, waiter or cashier! In those days, he always had a pad of paper, loose-leaf sheet, or even a napkin to feverishly write down lyrics. As technology evolved, his iPhone, iPad, and computer have gladly become the recipients of those lyrics. Do you have any idea how long it took to digitize all those songs??


    Sarantos love of music is profound. His lyrics express his love of people and the world around him. While life is fraught with many challenges, it also offers many blessings. His songs span an entire spectrum of emotion. And lest he take himself too seriously, Sarantos has a pretty wicked sense of humor. You may recognize this in some of his more lighthearted lyrics, facebook or twitter posts, and even in a random music video or two...


    Whether a particular song or lyric is deep, serious or lighthearted, most people would agree that it is something they can relate to as people of this planet.
