5th Annual Lake Arrowhead Brewfest ~ August 9, 2014

It is that time of year again to start thinking about the Annual Lake Arrowhead Brewfest!  This year the event will be held on Saturday, August 9, 2014 at noon on the Jensen’s parking lot in Blue Jay.

Last years attendees set a new record, it will be exciting to see how many show up this year!  We want everyone to know about it, so make sure to tell your friends and spread the word.  It is probably a good idea to purchase you ticket in advance if you want to receive a collector taster glass.

Remember that this event is in the dead of summer and the temperatures can get pretty high.  I suggest you drink lots of water and of course do not drink and drive, make sure to get a designated driver. The designated driver Brewfest ticket is only $15.

I look forward to seeing all your faces there, I think I will even give away one free ticket, but you have to be 21 years of age… Remember to follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to qualify for the drawing!

2: 28782 Cedar Dr {Palisades} Arrowhead Woods $320,000… This cute vintage charmer is the perfect vacation home.  The pictures do not do it justice, trust me.  There is even a peak of the lake from the back deck.  This one is walking distance to the lake!

THIS IS “LOU EDDIES” PIZZA IN SKYFOREST ~ LAKE ARROWHEAD

In RECENT NEWS:  Lou Eddie’s was just named one of YELPS top 100 places to eat in the US!  They made number 72! Here is the link to read more: http://officialblog.yelp.com/2015/01/yelps-top-100-places-to-eat-in-the-us-for-2015.html 

Have you seen the flashing PIZZA sign on Highway 18 and Kuffle Canyon? Well that is Lou Eddies Pizza and if you have not stopped in to try out this delicious new restaurant then I suggest you Stop, Drop and Pizza!

This February, 2014, marked the one year anniversary for Lou Eddies Pizza!

Image

Ed Hillary and Louise York are the creators and masterminds behind this delicious pizza establishment.  After Eddie decided his life as a Chemist did not suit him, he started working in restaurants and never looked back.

It took Lou and Eddie 3 years to open their doors, but once they finally did, the line out the door to order Pizza has not stopped.  You might have noticed first off how small the seating area is, but do not let that stop you from ordering.  Lou Eddies does not have table service, so make sure that you order first and then grab a seat from one of their many locations they offer throughout the grounds.  There is seating in the main restaurant, if you grab a bar stool you can watch your pizza be hand made and cooked!  There is also a Saloon downstairs with ample seating or you can grab a picnic-table outside when the weather is not so frightful! 😉  There is of course “Take Out” so that you can just order in, pick up and take home!

One thing I love about Lou Eddies, besides the Deer Meadow Pizza (I add bacon) $14.50… Is the fun vintage style décor that they have going on.  They have these awesome lamp shades that are made out of olive buckets from Italy, the bar stools are the old stools from the Lake Arrowhead Yacht Club and the bar top is reclaimed bark beetle wood from Ponderosa Logs.

Image

Lou Eddies is focusing on getting as many local vegetable and meats as they can.  Right now on special they have a Hot Rocket Pie, it is a Sriracha & Wild Arugula pizza that has fresh Herbs from Running Springs and Sriracha cured bacon jerky from Arrowhead Jerky Works.  I heard it is DY-NA-MITE!  Lou Eddies also offers soups and salads for those who want to skip the pizza.

Image

New this year is the BREWERY!  YAY! We love beer, or well I do anyways! 😉  But for those of you who are craft beer lovers, Lou Eddies is brewing up some tasty beer in their Saloon!  The equipment arrived last week (May 29) and Eddie is ready to start brewing.  The beer will be up and running soon, so keep an eye out for the release!   Not only does Lou Eddies have a saloon but they also have a wide variety of craft beers on tap and in bottle.
