Every now and then, we like to say ‘thanks’ to the people and businesses that help keep the OB Rag in business.  And we ask our readers and supporters to check them out and say ‘thanks’ to them by going on their websites and using their businesses.

So, here are a few of the more recent sponsors:

There’s Sorrentino’s Pizza, up in Clairemont Mesa.

They have a full array of Italian dishes, sandwiches, salads, take-out, pizzas of course – and catering services – all very reasonable – and some great deals.  It’s located at 4726 Clairemont Mesa Blvd, near the SDG&E Energy Innovation Center.  Here’s a link to their website (you can also get there via clicking on their ad in our sidebar). It’s run by Patrick, an old friend – tell ’em the OB Rag sent ya.

Then we have the local branch of Vets for Peace:

Veterans For Peace (VFP) is a national organization founded in 1985. It is structured around a national office in Saint Louis, MO and comprised of members across the country organized in chapters or as at-large members.  The organization includes men and women veterans from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, other conflicts and peacetime veterans. Our collective experience tells us wars are easy to start and hard to stop and that those hurt are often the innocent. Thus, other means of problem solving are necessary.  Here’s their website.

Wow! Adams Avenue Unplugged!

A brand new  weekend music and art festival on Adams Avenue on April 21st and 22nd along a two mile stretch of Adams from Texas St. on the West, on through Normal Heights and into parts of Kensington to the East.  It will feature 170 live acoustic musical performances staged inside or around, more than 30 restaurant and bars lining the neighborhood. Musicians will also perform on three community stages spread throughout the area.

This free event also will include artists, crafters and dealers who will be displaying both inside business district storefronts as well as in Adams Park, within an open-air market setting. Free trolley service will be provided on Adams Avenue during the event.  Music will be scheduled from 11am until 9pm on Saturday 21st and noon until 7pm on Sunday the 22nd.  Here’s their website.

Oldies But Goodies …

Some businesses have stayed with us and have renewed their sponsorships. Here they are:

Ocean Beach International Hostel – their website here.

DogBeach DogWash – their website here.

I’ve been to the Newbreak by the pier. The tomato basil soup is very good. And I had a vegie type sandwich once last week that contained very fresh ingredients. When I’m down by the pier, I always stop in for a cuppa Joe.
I was thinking of stopping in to the Dog Beach Dog Wash, but my hair isn’t long enough yet. Maybe next month.

When the OBRag sustained a cyber attack and the screen went dark, our advertisers were affected too. I appreciate their support. Thank you all!

Thanks to all of our supporters! With your continuing help, the OB Rag can continue in its efforts to make the truth available.

Best Wishes,
