Rob’s Birthday Party at Project Barley Square

These photos were taken Saturday evening at Project Barley Square, in Torrance, where they were closed for a private event to celebrate the birthday of a high school classmate, Rob. The event featured a taco bar, live music, and plenty of cask ales.

I am sure regular visitors to local breweries have probably seen Rob, even if you don’t know his name. He can frequently be found in area tasting rooms with his kilt and bicycle, or his dogs and a pint, dancing an Irish jig.

To be completely honest, I was not sure that I was going to attend the party, but I had heard some rumors about Project Barley Square that I wanted to investigate. To bring my camera inside was almost an afterthought, or maybe it was just habit. It was nothing against Rob, it was just a very busy day and I was tiring out.

Imagine my surprise when all of a sudden people I didn’t recognize started naming other attendees whose names I recognized, but that was about it. That’s because this birthday party had turned into a 53 year high school reunion! I went to my five year reunion and that’s it. I never imagined I would see most of these people ever again.

That being said, it was a fun time and it was nice seeing some of them. Happy birthday, Rob; you obviously made an impression in high school to have so many ex-classmates show up. Cheers!

Oh yeah, it turns out the rumors are true; Project Barley Square is up for sale.
