Carlsbad Socks Help Boys & Girls Clubs

Carlsbad_Socks

With more than 30 years of experience in the apparel industry, Carlsbad local John Rich is hyper-aware of what is being worn in his community. And although there were plenty of Carlsbad t-shirts, hats and bags, he was hard pressed to find a pair of Carlsbad socks.

“I consider socks to be like a t-shirt for your feet,” joked John aka JR. “I also noticed how much the Carlsbad sign resonated with the community. I saw the void, combined the two ideas, threw in a charitable component, and bam! Carlsbad Socks were born. I’m also proud that we’re putting America back to work one sock at a time, as they are manufactured right here in the USA.”

April 5, 2016 Is Ralph Rubio Day

by The Editors on April 1, 2016

Ralph_RubioThe City of San Diego has named April 5, 2015 Ralph Rubio Day in honor of Carlsbad businessman (and Rubio’s Coastal Grill Co-Founder) Ralph Rubio (right) for “his entrepreneurial spirit, commitment to the community and contributions to the food industry.”

A San Diego State University alumnus, Ralph brought his love of fish tacos to the United States after a college trip to Baja California, Mexico. 33 years after opening the first Rubio’s restaurant – a walk-up fish taco stand in Mission Bay – Rubio’s Coastal Grill has established a passionate fan base throughout the Southwestern United States and has largely been credited for starting the fish taco phenomenon in America. Cited by The Washington Post and Los Angeles Times as the country’s top fish taco expert, Rubio’s Coastal Grill has sold more than 200 million Original Fish Tacos®.

In honor of Ralph Rubio Day, Rubios is offering their original fish taco for $1.75 at all San Diego County Rubio’s Coastal Grill locations (including the location at the Carlsbad Premium Outlets) all day on April 5, 2016. If you’re hungry, you might want to stop by. For the official word from Rubio’s please follow the jump.
