Harney Sushi, the well-established San Diego restaurant, is getting ready to open its doors at a second Oceanside location July 9th, but a select few had the chance to get a sneak preview. On Friday, June 27th, Harney was open to friends and family for a benefit event, featuring guest appearances from Bob Burnquist, Pete “PT” Townend, Danny Way, Gary Linden and many other surf and skate heavy-weights. Sponsored by Transworld Media, Osiris, Hoven, Billabong, Ezekiel and Wyndham Hotel, the event was held to raise money for renovations at the California Surf Museum. Read the full press release HERE.
