Last weekend the HRO Squad headed out to the east coast for the 2018 New York Toy Fair! While the weather was vastly more cold than we were used to, the toy industry is very much on fire. We got to channel our inner child and test out all kinds of new toys that will be hitting shelves within the next year; as well as roam around the city to check out Times Square and people watch.

Brewskis! As San Diego natives, naturally we love good beer. Recently HRO headed over to the Ballast Point HQ for a private factory tour, and of course, for some great brew! Ballast Point has become a worldwide staple for craft beer while keeping their roots deep within the San Diego culture. Known for their crisp IPA’s and smooth Porters, the company was kind enough to give us a firsthand lesson on brewing some of their most popular beer. Be sure to drop by Ballast Point and see why these guys are dedicated to the craft.
