December 2, 2022 #1 Local News, Forum, Information and Event Source for Venice Beach, California.

We want to thank the community for voting in this year’s Best Of Venice 2022! We had well over 30,000 votes from the community this year and many nominations – it is truly amazing to see the community come together for that! This year, we encourage you to shop local for the holidays– whether they are the “Best” business in their category, a nominated business or a business that isn’t even listed in this publication – small businesses are what makes our communities thrive! So, as we start to hear more and more news about supply chain issues and big box stores not having gifts for the holidays, we encourage you to look local – shop small this holiday season and support all your community businesses! From our family to yours, we wish you an amazing end of the year and a happy holiday season! As always, thank you for reading, following, watching and supporting!
