Santa Monica Business #1: The Slice
Santa Monica Business #2: The Carousel
Santa Monica Business #3: Bob's Market
Why I can't live without these three businesses: The Slice has been such an iconic business. After Santa Monica Pony League baseball practice, my teammates and I would go head across the street from our practice location (John Adams Middle School) to enjoy a fun time with friends and family. It would be devastating to see this business go down for all the future athletes that practice at John Adams. This location is so convenient and makes everyone feel welcome.
Another business that I could not live without is the Carousel at the Pier. I do not know if this is one business or if it is a series of businesses on the pier but this is such a landmark of Santa Monica that if it were even brought up as an idea to close it at City Hall, it would be shot down very quickly.
The last business I could not live without in Santa Monica is Bobs Market on Ocean Park and 17th (the same block as The Slice). This is another place to get a pre practice or game snack. My sister currently practices at John Adams with her baseball team and somedays I tag along and throw the baseball with my dad. After a good nice practice we usually stop at Bobs to get a Nesquik chocolate milk. Bobs Market also has full meals for inexpensive prices which help the students at John Adams and SMC get a meal for a great price.
