Trendy clothes — lots of Ed Hardy stuff — and Hustlerwear compete for attention in this boardwalk shop. They even have skateboards — Ed Hardy skateboards. I just bought a couple thongs there to use for my “Thonged Man denies armed robbery, decries discrimination” video. But they came from the sale basket, don’t judge the merch on my headwear choices. On the other hand, you need to get a stunt thong and a Hustler poster in a hurry, hurry on down.

Boardwalk bikinis and all the Havaianas you’re ever going to need. LOTS of bikinis. LOTS of flip-flops and slides.

Concession stand fare plus generic re-recordings of classic rock and pop hits (played, I presume, to save on licensing fees).

I prefer the shorter Hot Dog Stick (see signage). This fire-engine-red wiener and lemonade stand is classic Santa Monica boardwalk. Can’t vouch for the wieners…I don’t eat no swine.

Bike and blade rentals as well as beach gear, including boogie boards and surf boards. The place also sells stuff like flip-flops and various beach wear and accessories. A plan: Rent bikes here, roar around Venice for a while, bring them back in time to snag a table next door at On the Waterfront for a sunset Erdinger. Cheers.
