This week, Huell visits a castle in Glendora, watches Laguna Beach skimboarders, hangs out at Muscle Beach in Venice and much more!
Monday - July 25, 7:30pm: Glendora Castle - Huell has produced thousands of shows over the last 25 years and there have been many fan favorites. One of the all time greats has to be the old Videolog, "Rubel's Castle". Michael Rubel took Huell on the grand tour of his hand made home and charmed us all. Michael has since passed away and the Castle is now managed by the Glendora Historical Society with the help of Michael's nephew Scott. Huell gets an update tour of this iconic location.
Tuesday - July 26, 7:30pm: Skimboarding - Huell travels to Laguna to watch some local skimboarders show him how it's done. Check out this video of some talented skimboarders riding waves in Laguna Beach:
Wednesday - July 27, 7:30pm: California Restaurants - Huell visits two California restaurants that are great examples of "California's Gold". Fosters Freeze has been a tradition since 1946 when George Foster opened his first store and the company now owns over ninety locations and has become a California favorite. Founded by the five Havadijas brothers, the first Farmer Boys restaurant opened its doors in Perris, California in 1981. Their generous portions and farm-fresh food quickly gained a loyal following and at last count there were 68 Farmer Boys restaurants at locations all over Southern and Central California and in Nevada.
Thursday - July 28, 7:30pm: Panorama Update - Huell starts this update with clips from the original episode, then Huell heads to the new home of the Panorama and meets up with Sara to see what has changed and what you can expect if you choose to visit.
Friday - July 29, 7:30pm: Muscle Beach - Huell and Luis go back to the original plot of sand in Venice to visit with some of the men and women who made Muscle Beach their playground during its heyday. We'll see some wonderful old photos and home movies and hear some great stories. This show has a particularly good ending as there are a group of people who are bringing back the original Muscle Beach in it's original spot. The new Muscle Beach will have the old emphasis of fitness and fun and it's sure to be a huge success.
