Newport Avenue is the Hot Spot!: Ocean Beach Weekends!
Sometimes all it takes is for the sun to set and Newport Avenue can become one big party. Other times there are some sort of street fair going on.
This photo was taken at the Annual OB Street Fair & Chili Cook-Off Festival last June. This year (2012) they will be celebrating their 125 Anniversary and the Festival will be bigger then ever. there are six stages, almost all types of music and even a Lazer Tag and water slide will be offered.
So, if you love a crowd to party with come to OB on a Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday or any of the Festival days, wait for the sun to set and you're there.
Any other night it will be less crowded but still it's not too hard to find a fun place to be.

Sunshine Company Saloon Limited!: What's In A Name?
The name of this place should give you a clue, but the really unique thing about Sunshine Company Saloon is that their Happy Hour is ONLY an hour! Between five and six in the evening pitchers are half price. That's a great deal if you like beer! If beer isn't your thing, try their special Sunshine Lemonade, especially great on a hot sunny day.
This big place is a cross between a sports bar and a beach (OB, that is) hang out. Don't miss the Mural on the wall or the pool table if you like to play. Of the two levels I'd suggest the upstairs deck for the the ocean views or to watch the activity on Newport Avenue. There is a special atmosphere that is worth soaking up.
For those of you who care, this singles beach bar only accepts cash and you must be twenty-one or older to enter. They have smoking and non-smoking sections and are open until two in the morning.
Dress Code: No real dress code, come as you are. This not a place for trying to impress anyone.
