Venice Paparazzi rolled  out the red carpet for Surfside Venice’s grand opening, and Venetians came out en masse to celebrate!
.
It was a celebration of epic proportion that welcomes in a new era for the historical location.  The Venice Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially welcome the Surfside family to the Venice community.  This was followed by red carpet photo opts and prints by Venice Paparazzi. $5 House Beer and well drinks flowed all night among the jubilant crowd.  Peace Frog hit the stage at 9:30 and blew the roof of the place!  It was a fantastic show put on by Tony Fernandez and the crew.  Folks danced, cheered and sang along as the band ran through a 2 hour set of classic tunes from the legendary Venice band, The Doors.
.
The locals were stoked to see that Surfside has preserved, and has on display the old Venice artifacts from the Danny’s museum, giving it a new feel, while paying homage to the building’s, and town’s past.
 .
In short, the event was epic and the place is spectacular!  The food is fantastic, the drink selection is deep, and the staff is super cool, with most of them being folks who have been working on the block for years.
 .
Way to go Surfside!  Welcome!   You are an excellent addition to the V!
