Happy Birthday to Us!

Have you ever heard of Grind Out Hunger? Well, you should.

Grind Out Hunger is the brainchild of our friend Danny Keith. Now, Danny is awesome people. He owns Santa Cruz Skate Shop and does 5 million other things, but mostly, his claim to fame is that he married a girl that I’ve known since she was a giggly little girl who looks more like my sister than I do. She’s still pretty giggly too.

We've much admired Danny & Taniya's commitment to trying to help out whenever and however they can so this year we thought maybe we could help them out!

My brother-in-law, Dave celebrates his birthday on November 16th, my birthday is the 28th and Ray turns 32 on the 30th. Ray thought it would be fun to invite all of our friends to spend a little money on themselves on our birthday and join us at La Torta Gorda for lunch on the 29th of November. We’ll be there from 11 a.m. until about 2 p.m. Check out their menu at I guarantee you will drool. Seriously.

La Torta Gorda opened their doors at the end of September and they make some frakken delicious food. More tortas than you can shake a stick at (what does that even mean? They have a lot of tortas, that’s what it means.) and the most mouthwatering thing that I wake up every day and lust for…..Carne Asada Fries.

Ray, being the youngest of us three November babies is feeling rather brave. Will he slay a dragon this year? Probably not. Go to a New Kids on the Block concert with us? No. Eat a gianormous torta and a full order of Carne Asada Fries just to get his picture on the wall of fame? Yes. That’s right people, Ray will attempt the La Torta Gorda Challenge. Feel free to join him. Those festivities will begin around 12:00.

Now, where does Danny Keith come, you ask? We’d love it if you brought us tons of presents this year. Tons. No need to wrap them, just throw some canned and other non-perishable food items in a bag and Danny will take them over to Second Harvest Food Bank for us! Let’s help Grind Out Hunger reach their goal of bringing in 100,000 pounds of food!

So let us know if you will be joining us. We would love to see everyone and whoever you’d like to bring. It’s always nice to meet new people on your birthday!! Party is open to all!! If you could please RSVP so we have an idea of how much cake to get and if you’d like to attempt the La Torta Gorda Challenge. You can either comment on this blog to RSVP or email me at

Hope to see you there!!
