The Galley Restaurant - it's not too late to catch 1934 day!

By Joy A. Kennelly

Just returned from hitting The Galley restaurant's 1934 day where Captain Ron, the owner, is offering food at 1934 prices. He's quite a character (you can see his pic on the Web site in full captain regalia - too fun.) I brought my mom since that was her era and she rarely visits Santa Monica which made this fun to do together.

My colleague was the publicist of note on this promotion, and I've been helping her with writing and promotional ideas. Always nice to support a fellow publicist when they have an event. There was a line when we arrived, but since it was reservation only for loyal customers, this was a manageable crowd.

The food is really good and if I still lived in the neighborhood I would eat there often. It's one of the best steak and seafood restaurants in Santa Monica, CA. There was a great press turn-out for the party which I hope the Captain appreciates! It's not too late if you live nearby to go for the first come, first serve option.

Here's the press release - doesn't it make you want to eat there? Another romantic place to take a date - for me though - "rotic" - romantic without the man since I was there with my mom during the day. Tee hee!

Off to the beach. Have a good one. BTW, King Harbor Church is celebrating their all-church luau again tonight - I went last year and really enjoyed myself (it looked like over 1,000 people were there!) - may have to hit it again tonight.

Here's the details:

"It’s that time again to celebrate that new life that can come from our rebirth in Christ! Our annual All-Church Luau and Baptism at the Seaside Lagoon will be held this Sunday, July 29th, at 6:00pm. This is a time we look forward to all year as our church family gathers together over food and fun. If you need more information or would like to volunteer to help, contact the church offices at 310.376.6555."



Thanks for coming out to support me and for all your help with The Galley! You're the best!
