luewater Grill was established in Newport Beach in 1996, by partners Rick Staunton and Jim Ulcickas. We have since grown into a family of seafood restaurants, located in resort communities, committed to serving guests pristine seafood, sustainably caught, and prepared classically or with a modern twist. We believe that fin-tastic hospitality is all about authentic relationships. Whether that’s you catching up with friends and loved ones over a meal or the connections made between our team and our loyal guests. It speaks to the collaborations we’ve created with longstanding partnerships with local fishermen and suppliers and the lifelong friendships that are made with the people that work to make Bluewater so great. These connections are the culture and life behind our restaurants that make us a family. Being fishermen at heart, we want to ensure the future availability of seafood and make responsible purchasing a core value of our operation. Our fish are purchased directly from fisherman, in season, at the peak of quality and freshness. We also do some fishing ourselves using our own swordfish harpoon boat, Pilikia.

ive N’ Surf was established in 1953. It is the oldest diving and surfing shop in the United States. Owners Bill and Bob Meistrell designed and manufactured the first commercially viable neoprene wet suits for surfing and diving. It is also the home of Body Glove. They came up with the name because as Bill Meistrell said, “my wetsuits fit like a glove.” Body Glove grew to be a worldwide brand with sales on every continent except Antarctica. Dive N’ Surf is still owned and operated by the Meistrell family. Dive N’ Surf carries a complete line of surfboards, wetsuits, swimwear, apparel, footwear and diving equipment. We also teach basic and advanced scuba diving in our twelve foot deep swimming pool located in our store.

The Covid pandemic has been especially challenging for our families. CMG providers continued to provide care in our office to our patients since the onset of pandemic. Understanding that this was a scary time for our community, we did not close at any time since the start of the Covid pandemic. We were able to secure personal protective equipment and maintained a diligent sanitizing process. We implemented safe procedures to bring in patients into the office without exposing other patients. We are now offering the covid vaccine to our patients directly in our office.

After a few visits, she was back to enjoying what she loved, and even excelled at the art because chiropractic care kept her better balanced.

From sports to dance to playing with kids, whatever your goals are, she may be able to help you reach them.

P

rior to opening the first Lucille’s in Long Beach in 1999, Lucille’s founder, Craig Hofman, perfected the best bar-b-que by spending several years on a tour of Southern bbq restaurants. In addition to picking up culinary inspiration from some of the best bbq shacks in the south, Craig also discovered the secret ingredient that all of his favorites seemed to share: friendliness. And when he finally made his way back home to California, Craig distilled everything he learned into what became Lucille’s driving philosophy, “Serving the Best Bar-B-Que with the Finest Southern Hospitality.” Over twenty years later, this philosophy is still at work in every aspect of the Lucille’s experience, ranging from the way we prepare our food (from scratch, of course!) To the way we value our team members (like family, how else?).

OMPAGNON Wine Bistro pays tribute to the classic French bistros (of southern France) where good food, good wine and friends come together to create the special “Joie de Vivre”.

ince opening our doors in August 1963, the Palos Verdes Red Onion has been blessed with the continuous support of three generations of loyal customers and devoted employees. Contained within the walls of the restaurant are the memories of childhood dinners out with mom and dad, wedding celebrations, baby showers, anniversaries, graduations, birthday parties and other happy occasions. We have witnessed the passing of time and memorialized many of our original customers who discovered our place in 1963 and made it their home. 59 years in business is a milestone, especially for a restaurant. Just this year, George Geary prominently featured the Palos Verdes Red Onion in his most recent volume of “Made in California” a history of the iconic eateries of Southern California. All of us here at the Red Onion would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for supporting us through these difficult last two years. We look forward to continuing to serve the next generation of our community.

M

ost of us have moments when we struggle with memory. It’s not unusual to be concerned when a family member is grappling with memory issues—stress and multi-tasking commonly make us forgetful. However, if problems are significant and have begun suddenly, it could be a sign of something more serious. As a guide, Belmont Village Senior Living answers frequently asked questions from seniors and their families. Q: I misplace and forget routine things—should I be worried? A: Multi-tasking can prevent you from storing and retaining memories, so try to ignore distractions when performing a task. Indicators of a more serious issue include finding things in unusual places or trouble recognizing familiar surroundings. Q: Why has my loved one started repeating statements and questions? A: This is a more profound level of memory loss. Likely this person is also forgetting appointments and bills and daily activities like cooking, laundry and grooming. An assessment by a medical professional is necessary. Q: I think we have a problem. What should we do? A: First, don’t give up hope. Start by discussing concerns with your physician. Though there’s no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, diet, exercise, regular mental fitness and social interaction can help maintain brain function. Belmont Village Rancho Palos Verdes is a leading senior living provider known for its award-winning and evidence-based Circle of Friends memory care program for residents with mild to moderate dementia.
