LA Vegan Beer Fest

In case you hadn’t seen all the photos from the LA Vegan Beer Fest over on Quarrygirl, I have a few more to add to the lot. It was the quintessential summer event here in Los Angeles as the weather just decided to finally warm up. We didn’t get as crazy as last year but it was tons of fun. There were lots of superb beers and good times.

I started out with a bbq “pulled pork” sandwich from Seabirds made with jackfruit. We also had to have their infamous beer battered avocado tacos. Have I mentioned how much I love Seabirds? Love them so much.

So possibly my favorite beer of the day was the Brother Thelonius from North Coast Brewing Co. It is rich with a full flavor and just my style. (more…)


Triple Trapeze Group Performance from Sarah Muehlbauer on Vimeo.

I have so many things to blog about and haven’t had a second to sit down at a computer and write them. This weekend was full of summer fun including the LA Vegan Beer Fest and cool movie screenings. I’ll have some recaps to share up here on the blog this week.

I had a really rewarding aerial class on Sunday as I completed all the tricks I’ve learned thus far successfully. I’ve been struggling with a few basic moves on aerial silk that I’ve been able to do, but not gracefully. This week I was able to pull them off with ease. It feels awesome to know that I’m improving.

We’re half way through the summer session which means I’m half way there to the little performance we’ll be doing. I’m excited to put together an act, but haven’t yet decided whether I’ll be doing aerial silk or single trapeze.

The video above is from a friend’s triple trapeze performance that I’m loving right now (and hopefully she won’t mind that I’ve linked to here). The choreography is so fluid and I am really into how each trick turns into the next thing without pausing. There is always something to catch your eye. I will try to keep this style in mind when I’m putting together my own little demo.
