Revisiting the beach town in Los Angeles 30 years later as #RUNNINGLIGHTSBEVERAGE achieves semifinalist for the best new beverage of the year at BevNet.

Living in Venice 30 years ago, it was a little wacky and a little dangerous.

We scurried home past the homeless at nightfall after playing basketball on the hard courts. You didn’t want to get caught out here in the dark. I got threatened with a shank on one occasion, and on another occasion by a gang.

We ran like hell. That’s the Venice I knew.
