The Deschutes Brewery Jumbo Keg was in Mission Beach yesterday. I saw this world wonder on Sail Bay, near the Santa Clara Rec Center.

One of my mentors, Greg Joumas moderated the Account Planning seminar hosted by the San Diego Ad Club. Key takeaways:
- The account goal should always be to create value to the brand, product and audience.
- Planning has evolved from getting a person to buy something to pursuing value to a persons live and creating brand advocates
- You have to be a good story teller
- The planners project path is information, inspiration, creative and evaluation

The Pier at San Clemente. They had a really nice earth day celebration, SoCal style.
