Local Round-up:

#1. You say Beach, and he says Beaches...

If you've been socializing with people from outside the Beaches in the last few weeks,  it's likely you have been asked many times on this topic - which one is it, the B1... or the B2...?

As you can imagine the question has been posed to us if we will rename the Beaches Living Guide? Our answer is short and simple. "It is not about what we call it, it is what people want to hear". If  the Beach is what you'd like to call it,  you will hear it as the Beach. But if you have always call it the Beaches, likely you hear it as the Beaches".

Afterall, this is all about the new sign "the Beach Historic District", noththing has really changed. Historically people consider this place as the "Beach"...
