Gene-and-PaulFor sure, there's no end to the fun that can be had at Rock & Brews in south Redondo Beach, especially when you consider that rock icons Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley (pictured) are behind the relatively new entry into concept dining.

The RB site, located in a family-friendly community near the ocean, opened in May 2013 and continues to draw locals and travelers to its 5,400-square-feet of casual American cuisine, broad selection of craft beers, and full bar.

Summer is all about the beach, and in Manhattan Beach, one of our new listings has the best of many worlds.

If you'll permit us a little self-promotion here, we'd like to tell you about our new listing at 316 18th St. in Manhattan Beach.

The home is a smallish, original beach cottage built in the 1950s. It's got the plus of some extra space built out downstairs – a family room, gym or even a 4th bedroom. (The home is officially 3br/2.5ba, 1225 sqft.).

Living-rm-twd-frontBecause it has been nicely refreshed, many people who have come through love the home say that they love it as it is. Or they would consider modest upgrades.

The location is a big draw. You're just 2 minutes from downtown, with its compelling mix of restaurants, shops and watering holes.
