The Orange Circle. Be there or be square...

The SoCal Social is going to be SO fun! 
We're going to be at the Orange Circle, an historic area in the City of Orange.  There are amazing restaurants, antique shops, boutiques, vintage treasures and the architecture is fantastic.  
Remember that Tom Hanks movie That Thing You Do...?  It was filmed at the Orange Circle because it's so cool and vintage-y.

You all know that these luncheons and events come with swag bags and fun party favors, right...?  Well, rather than sit you all down at a lunch table, hope that you strike up engaging conversations on your own, then hand you a swag bag when you leave, we're doing it a little differently. 
We're going to be doing something really fun!  

We're working with some of the fabulous shops and restaurants in Old Town Orange to create a fun shopping tour for you.  You'll be given an empty bag, and your swag awaits you at the stores participating in our tour.  

Take your time, visit the stores, chat with new friends, and get inspired!

Window shop to your heart's content and don't spend a dime... or pick up a few extra items on your own, it's up to you.  Either way, you'll have a bag full of goodies at the end of the tour!  After our shopping tour, we'll enjoy a late lunch and maybe even do a little more shopping... :)

We'll start taking registrations in the next week.  More details to come.  Please spread the word.  
It's gonna be fun!

So, I'm in Tucson but I was born and raised in the O.C.! Does that count? Old Town Orange is so cool! Rutabegorz....wow I remember that place! And what is the name of that old fashioned pharmacy/greasy spoon? Used to eat there all the time, but I can't remember the name! Fosters? This sounds soooo fun!

Laura,

the pharmacy is Watson's drugstore, part of That thing you do was filmed there, I remember the filming. A movie about the president's daughter was also filmed at the circle..First Daughter, maybe??

I just heard about this ladies, I'd love to join up with this, I am local!

I forgot, about watson's, my mother in law used to walk through the circle on her way to and from school, and she would stop at Watson's for a soda :)

My old stomping grounds! We use to live in Orange and I'd take the kiddos to Watson's for lunch when they were little. LOTS of great antique shops in the area & yummy restaurants and a wonderful cupcake shop. Sure hope I can make it!

What a great spot! I'm from the City of Orange, while the military took us away from Orange all our family is still there. We go to the circle every time we go home. I love shopping there with my Mother in law and sis in laws. I would love for it to be when we are visiting!
