Blue Sky Center

1000 Perkins Rd, New Cuyama, CA, United States



Head out to the high desert of California’s Central Coast and you never know what you’ll find. With any luck (and possibly a tip-off), you might stumble upon Blue Sky Center, a gorgeous collection of cool eco huts and unique accommodations tucked away under the starry desert sky. This special spot is doing all kinds of great work in their Cuyama community, boosting up local farmers and artists alike.

Our friends over at Moonrise Standard recently hosted a farm-forward feast at the desert digs and filled us in on all the details. Here’s the scoop from Moonrise Standard co-founder, Alana Tivnan.

Minou

721 Eighth Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101, United States



Celebrations and gatherings are kind of a big deal here at The Venue Report. Beyond our daily mantra of “promote happiness,” we intentionally set time aside to gather with one another and our loved ones for special holidays (and even the not so special ones). It’s been a year of challenge, growth and “new” – within the sphere of our office and out in the world. With all that has happened in our personal and public lives, we were greatly inspired and encouraged by the notion of manifestation and the mentality of “the universe is never wrong.” We used this positive reinforcement to focus on the future and live in the present. Over the course of the year, we’ve traveled around the globe, welcomed new faces that became family and challenged ourselves more than ever before.
