Future Shores Traditions: Be Irish for a Day in Marina del Rey

Why should you never iron a four-leaf clover? Because you don’t want to press your luck!

Ok, after a few green beers, you’re going to think that’s hilarious.

Guess what time of year it is? St.-Patty’s-Day-time! And if you were living at Shores, there would be plenty of celebrating going on right in your own neighborhood. Here are a few places to check out when you’re ringing in the holiday and a few stay-at-home nuggets of goodness, too.

Out and About with the Irish

Brennan’s Pub: 4089 Lincoln Blvd.

This place celebrates the luck of the Irish 365 days a year, so you know it’s got the fun down. On March 17, they’re open from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. with a minor cover charge starting at 2 p.m. They’ll be serving up corned beef and cabbage, green beer, Irish Coffee and a whole lot more, plus there’s live music set up on two different stages. This is definitely where the party’s going on so don’t miss it.

Tony P’s Dockside Grill: 4445 Admiralty Way

Head over to Tony P’s for over 100 different beers from all over the world (including Ireland, of course). There should be some drink specials happening and a Corned Beef and Cabbage special on the dinner menu. You can also come back on March 20 for their $60 Celtic Beer Dinner. You’ll enjoy five courses, including Beef and Guinness Stew and homemade Black Irish Crème ice cream. The dinner is reservation-only, so call while there’s still room!

Baja Cantina: 311 Washington Blvd.

Okay, the Baja Cantina may not be exactly Irish, but it’s still getting in on the St. Patrick’s Day action. On March 17, they’ll have a Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner available and a special tequila called “Sino.” What is it you ask? It’s tequila that’s aged in Jameson Irish Whiskey barrels. Wow! That is a must-try if there ever was one.

Stay-at-Home Irish Fun

Next year, plan to have some lassies and lads over for your own St. Patrick’s day party at your new Shores apartment. Put on some Clancy Brothers (or Pogues), pass out the Guinness, and impress with homemade Irish fare. They’ll be singing your praises and begging for recipes.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

 

 

Shores Inspiring Community One Amenity at a Time

Community Lifestyle

When Shores’ masterminds got together to design and choose amenities, they had one common focus: They wanted to create a sense of community. That’s not easy to find in L.A., where neighbors can live next to each other for a decade without ever moving beyond the unenthusiastic “hey” in the hallway.

But Shores isn’t designed for that. Everything from the two-acre courtyard and pet-friendly area to the fitness classes and Sky Terraces are made to not just enhance a resident’s lifestyle, but to inspire a real feeling of community. Aside from the cool architecture and great floorplans, that’s what is really going to make Shores stand out from the pack. And when you add Shores’ smoke-free environment to the list, you have what may be L.A.’s best residential community.

Here’s a list of amenities that will make Shores the envy of Los Angeles. Seriously.

The Two-Acre Courtyard

Two acres! That’s approximately 87,000 square feet of relaxation and recreation possibilities. The courtyard is designed like a park, so there’s plenty of space to walk, meditate, or unwind with a good eBook.

Fire Pits

Sit in front of the warm glow and unwind. Or heck, grab a neighbor and a bag of marshmallows—and cook up some smores! There’s nothing quite like a fire pit to give you that ahhhhhh feeling after a long day.

BBQs

Nothing says summer like throwing some grub on the barbecue and kicking back with family and friends. Shores is BBQ-ready so start planning your grilling agenda now!

The Large Pool and Seriously Big Sun Deck

Now, it just wouldn’t be coastal living without a big, sparkling pool outside your door, would it? Slather on the sunscreen, get out by the pool, and make the most of a gorgeous weekend.

Two Jacuzzis

Besides the fire pit, what else makes you “sigh” when you think of it. Yep, Jacuzzis. And Shores has two of those bubbling, warm havens of relaxation right by the pool.

WiFi Hotspots

Yes, you should disconnect every once in a while, but isn’t it nice to have the option to plug into the world while you’re hanging out in the courtyard or by the pool? Check your Facebook, pin some Pinterest pics, return emails…do what you need to do because Shores makes sure you’re always in a WiFi zone.

The Fitness Center

We’re not talking about a couple of stationary bikes and a handful of free weights lying around. Shores’ Fitness Center rivals any off-site gym with top-of-the-line equipment by Technogym and Star Trac, plenty of mat space for yoga, a Spinning Studio, and group exercise classes. “Wow!” right?

 Two Dedicated Pet-Friendly Green Areas

Our pets are our family. You know it. Shores knows it. So at Shores, your dogs have their own special green areas to “do their business.” The extra bonus: you’ll get to know your neighbors and your pups can have a playdate!

The Clubhouse

The clubhouse is great for organized gatherings and the full-service catering kitchen only makes it better. Big birthday coming up and you need a perfect party space? Look no further than your own community clubhouse.

Sky Terraces

Rooftop recreation. That’s such a uniquely SoCal perk. Invite your neighbors up to the sky terrace for a sunset cocktail. The comfy furniture, unique firetables, and mellow lighting only add to the tranquility. And since Shores is smoke-free, you’ll be able to enjoy the fresh ocean-air day and night.

 

The Business Center

Let’s say your printer fails…right before you need to print out that 20-page sales report for work. Shores’ full-service business center has you covered. The center is equipped with both Macs and PCs, plus a scanner, copier and printer…perfect for those days when everything seems to be going wrong.

Electric Charging Stations

Since electric cars are popping up all over the place, Shores has electric charging stations right on-site.

The Bocce Ball Court

You heard right. There’s a Bocce Ball court! Are you already picturing the Building A versus Building L Bocce Ball Showdown? This could be a new annual affair!

Community Events

In the spirit of community, Shores will periodically host events for residents. Who knows…one of the events could end up being that aforementioned Bocce Ball Tournament. You’ll have to move in to find out!

Speaking of moving in—pre-leasing will be starting before too long. If you haven’t done it already, join the Interest List to make sure you’re up on the latest!

Time to Get Social with Shores!

Shores in Marina del Rey is a truly social community…in more ways than one!  Shores is now on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube, so you can stay connected and fully in the know about your favorite future coastal community.  Join the conversation with Shores and invite your Marina del Rey neighbors to do the same. You’ll be the first to know about community news, grand opening updates, releases and exclusive VIP events.

Who knows? You might even meet your future neighbor! (Hello, neighbor.)
