The OC Mix & Surfas | Local Adventures Travel

My mother, much like me, enjoys going to new restaurants and places and further discovering some of the exciting things our local area has to offer. A few weeks ago, she discovered Surfas, a restaurant supply store which serves wine and cheese plates as well as cooking classes.
