This Week’s Edition {Eat. Shop. Play. Explore}


First of all, happy Friday / National Bike to Work Day! Secondly, hope you’re surviving the heat. I know we barely are, but thank goodness the 805 is conveniently located off the beach. Right?!? #winners

Although we’re exhausted from the long hot week, fortunately the temps are dropping (yay!) and we’ve got a lot of fun going on in the 805. Here’s a glimpse at what we’re looking forward to this weekend!


We’re going on a whim here and considering craft beer as an “eat” – I mean, some people do choose to drink their calories 😉 And more importantly, you are aware that it’s American Craft Beer Week, right? Hopefully so– but l if not, don’t you worry because you have up through Sunday to celebrate (phew)!

Here are some of our fave 805 local spots celebrating ACBW this week:

Enegren Brewery: Discount Cask Night tonight, Fri. 6-9pm, Open House including brewery tours & new brew release on Saturday  11a-8pm and more fun on Sunday, Official Brewery Tours on Sunday at 2pm and 3:30pm.

LadyFace AleHouse: Sit on the patio and enjoy some local craft beer, delicious food and live music at the Music & ACBW Wrap Party on Saturday from 8-11pm.

Also, come watch the AMGEN Tour of California race on Sunday! LadyFace will be opening at 8am for the event- breakfast, music, goodies and of course, drinks to be had while watching the finish with front row seats!

Wisteria Bridal Salon

Last Saturday was the Grand Opening of Wisteria Bridal Salon in Thousand Oaks! Now, this isn’t just any bridal dress shop — it truly is all that a bridal salon should be. As soon as you walk in, you immediately feel pampered. The pink, white and gold decor are the perfect combo of girly, yet sophisticated. It almost makes us wish we could be engaged all over again, searching for that perfect gown — except not because we love our dearest husbands! — BUT, if you know of anyone in search for the dress, please take her to Wisteria. She won’t be let down.

We are so proud of our friends, Karli and Carisa. Two (local) young entrepreneurial women making their dreams come true. Go get ’em girls! {more info here}Wisteria Bridal Salon Grand Opening



As we mentioned, it’s the Stage 8 Overall Finish of the AMGEN Tour of California! It’s a pretty big deal too. Top cyclists from all over the world come to compete in this pro-race with 8 stages, starting in Sacramento and ending in our lovely hometown, Thousand Oaks. Pretty sweet huh?!? LadyFace Ale is hosting an event, and you can also check out event details here.

Also, summer time means picnics, camping, summer concert series and local getaways! Which means, LocalLove805’s got you covered! Watch for a new post this coming week featuring one of our favorite local getaways just off the 101– Summerland — and also, prepare for a lot of good camping material coming up! It’s what we do best (well, one of the many things)!

Another major event this weekend is the Strawberry Festival in Oxnard on Saturday & Sunday from 10a-6:30p. There is so much fun to be had at this event – live music & entertainment, contests, games, relay races, arts & crafts and so much more. And more importantly, the Strawberry Festival is a local community event benefiting over 20 local charities (over $4M since inception!) and featuring delicious strawberry bite non-profit food booths.
