VINYL: Do you have someone on your holiday gift list who is impossible to buy for? If your person happens to be enthusiastic about high-fidelity sound reproduction (i.e., an Audiophile), then head over to California Records & Gifts (1400 S. Coast Hwy., No. 101), which is located near Main Street Bar & Cabaret and JT Lash Studio. That’s where you’ll find a fellow Audiophile, owner Mark Downing, who has access to a warehouse containing more than 100,000 vinyl records, many of which are hard to find and in "Excellent" to "Near Mint" condition. In addition to selling records, Downing’s shop occasionally buys and trades records, and has a thriving custom audio set-up and repair service. If you’d like to check on a specific album or genre before stopping by, call (949) 554-5587 or email VintageTube1966@Gmail.com — but not before you check out these photos of the store and some of it’s inventory.
WASH THE DOG, PLEASE! If you're ready for Fido or Spike to relinquish the unique smell she or he has been sporting since the end of the summer, consider Dog Tub at 812 S. Coast Hwy. That's where you'll find Laguna's first self-serve dog wash that also sells dog food, treats and accessories for your four-legged family member. Owner Angela Lavelle tells us if spend $50 at the shop this month, your pooch receive a free wash! With 5 out of 5 Stars on Yelp (which includes comments like: "This is the cutest little pet shop in Laguna Beach!"), Dog Tub is worth checking out (first here, with today's photos; then in person with your canine companion).
