Jensen's Finest Foods in Wrightwood, CA

If you are reading this blog, then chances are pretty high that you have been to or heard of Mountain High in Wrightwood, CA.  While the mountain and features are great and the service friendly, sometimes it is good to look around a mountain town and see what the locals snack on. We had driven past this Jensen's Finest Foods hundreds of times until one day, we rolled the dice and gave it a shot.

It was a homerun.  Here's the recap.

This is the Caprese Panini.

Mozzarella, tomato, basil and cappacola layered and grilled until the edges are crisp.  Nothing beats a warm sandwich on a cold winter day.

Fresh ingredients and low prices.

This is the Turkey Cilantro Jalapeno Pesto. It will knock your socks off. Has a spicy kick to it. Perfect for a post snowboard bite.

Jensen's is in the center of town.  You can't miss it if you are driving through Wrightwood.

No trip to Mountain High is complete without a trip to Jensen's.

Support your local deli.

Penny Skateboards

I was looking for a way to stay in snowboarding shape over the summer and liked the idea of these Penny Skateboards.  I used to have a blue Penny board back in the early 80's, but I don't think I realized what I really had at the time. These boards are perfect in every way in my opinion.

These boards handle like no other board on the market. I have tried a few imitation boards and they don't seem to have the same formula as Penny.

Penny has been doing it forever, and the quality of the product they put out shows why.

They also have a larger Nickel sized board and a newer model known as the Marble.

If you are looking for a retro skateboard to cruise around the neighborhood or the beach, the Penny Skateboards brand is the one for you.

Good Vibes

Do you need a new show to check out on Netflix?  I am highly recommending "Good Vibes," a cartoon from MTV about "two high school surfer dudes (who) spend their time partying, checking out beach babes and dealing with the ups and downs of school and family."

I love the animation style.

I love the beach scenes.

I love the characters.
Shit, I even like the songs they play.

 It has a little bit for everyone. 

Bonus: I think the characters look like Old School T&C Surf Designs characters... Joe Cool, Tiki Man, Thrilla Gorilla etc... from artist Steve Nazar.

Good Vibes... Check it out.

What do you like to watch on Netflix?

Twoeightnine design: tshirts are incredible

I had that last post about No Mas and their Rated Rookies shirt and I was all pumped up on baseball cards.  I was looking to write about the old school wood panel design of the 1987 Topps Baseball Cards when I stumbled across a shirt and another incredible clothing company.
