Bixby Knolls Cooks for Kids!

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

We here at Knolls Ranger Dot Com, (follow that hyper-link for a recursive cycle of self-fulfilling meta loops [we dare ya!]) love a good cook off, hootenanny, all-you-can-eat, and banquet.  So imagine our good cheer when we discovered that not only would such an event be occurring in downtown Long Beaches Maya Hotel, but that our very own Blair Cohn would be competin’ in the cooking’ (and the eaten’!)  Add to the fact that this event was to raise money for Miller Children’s Hospital and the children’s cancer ward and our ranger lovin’ altruistic hearts swooned!  The Bixby chefs competed against 6 others and served some fine Factory Gastropub grub.  The sponsored child for the Bixby table was none other than Bixby Bucaroo and brain tumor fighter, Berlin Gutenkauf.  Oh and PS, Blair and Fire Chief Mike DuRee totally won!  Booya!

A Very Merry First Fridays

Saturday, December 22nd, 2012

Ho!  Ho!  Ho!  Happy Winter Solstice Bixby Knolls!  And the merriest of Christmases, Chanukahs, Kwanzas, and Berchtoldstags too!  With such a bevy of rich winter celebrations to peruse you can bet your bottom peso that Bixby Knolls went all out this First Friday!   We’re talking musicians, carolers, multiple Kris Kringles, graffiti artists, and one big elf!  But don’t take our word for it, check it out for yourself!

Everyone’s favorite trio of tiny string plucking females, the Ukettes crooned

And Roy Robbins who’s fabulous Gift and Stationary shop will close it’s doors in the New Year had one heck of a window display!
