For fans of Mixers Valencia, I just got this sad message from one of the owners, Louise Castaldo, they are CLOSING:
“So I wanted to tell you before you hear it , Mixers is closing after this week…We are looking to relocate…” So sad. For myself, it was one more tale of not getting out enough to frequent a place that I liked. Heck, Louise even started the “Eve’s Wine on Wednesdays” there where I got a chance to taste wine with her in advance, make some notes for peeps and then advertise the free tasting. The place had a cool vibe with the beer on tap right at some of the tables, weekly bands and…a classy velvet rope like a real club would use for crowd control. I’ve always lamented at the lack of things for young people to do out here. This place was good for the young, and the young at heart. Read on to see how they will be missed:
How about showing your support and visiting Mixers this *week? And, if you have any positive messages/stories to share, please do:

Renee Kaehny: Thank you Louise, Damian and your Mixers team for all the support to Rituals Colour Salon and the SCV Youth Project. You truly make a difference in our valley and hope you find a fabulous new home soon!
And many more…
