Cinco de Unicornio


You probably spent the weekend swilling Corona Light and fighting over limes. Why not try something a little more civil this Cinco de Mayo?

Unicorn juice delivers the fruitiness of a chardonnay without all the fuss.

Yum.

The Challengers are a Go!

Jan and Dean got all the attention back in ’64 with their Beach Boys sound, but the Challengers captured the endless wave.

From the liner notes:

Gangway! Clear the sidewalks! Skateboarding has arrived. All over the nation and even in England, sidewalk surfing is the rage.
...

So for instant thrills, place the record on your turntable, sit back, close your eyes, and “shoot the curb” with “The Challengers.”

– Rick Griffin, Staff member on John Stevenson’s “SURFER MAGAZINE”
