100_0005With more than 30 years experience in corporate and agency public relations, I have been involved in a variety of communications programs covering a wide scope of industries and interests. My background includes extensive experience in managing everything from event planning and media relations to crisis communications and issues management.

I am managing partner of Robinson and Associates, a Southern California-based strategic communications and public relations firm. I have served as associate vice president for public affairs at California State University, San Bernardino, as an account director at Magnet Communications, and communications and public relations manager at Fairplex in Pomona, Calif., home of the annual Los Angeles County Fair. I also was a broadcasting and publications assistant with the Los Angeles Dodgers. I’ve always been a writer, and I even ventured into the blogging world several years ago with “Sid’s Side,” my personal observations about sports, family, my community and life in general. This time, my blog has a focus…

Throughout my life I’ve also gravitated to the world of beer, wine and spirits. Beginning with my beer can collection when I was in high school, I’ve always found something interesting about the beverage industry. Hence, the theme of my blog is “Sips, Suds and Spirits.”

That’s enough about me. I hope you enjoy this look at the beverages, products, events, restaurants and bars, places to shop, recipes and the personalities that make beer, wine and liquor so much fun.


Oh, and let me know what you’re drinking!

I work for Linco Picture Framing Company and we work directly with the newspaper to get the original PDF material. We will print it on acid free / archival paper so it will never yellow or fade. We will mount it, double mat it, and frame it in your choice of frame color, and it will be ready to hang on the wall. We work quickly so once you order it you will have it within a couple days !!

    • Hello Krystal,
      Thanks for the offer, but I am not really interested in framing the article from 909 Magazine.
      Best wishes,
