Every September the Ports of Call Lobster Festival comes to San Pedro, and every September, my other half and I walk from our apartment to the festival.  This is our tradition and this year was no exception.

This year my other half and I were invited out to stop in and check out the #licensetospill better tour.  What was this tour, you ask?  The tour invites people to check out SmartStrand Carpeting, and boy, was I ever impressed.  The SmartStrand carpet was created by Mohawk Flooring, which is the world’s largest carpet manufacturer.

#licensetospill, #shop, Better TourUp above to the left you can see me getting my carpet sample dirty with soy sauce and red wine.  And to the right, with just the spray of water we watch as the stains completely disappear.  And that’s how TRULY easy it is to clean.  Even with those heavy duty stains all you would need is a dishrag, some warm water and a mild detergent like dish soap.  This is my dream carpet, what about yours?

What makes SmartStrand Carpet do this, you ask?  They’ve added stain and soil resistance to the carpet so it will never wear off.  Most other carpet companies add this topically so it wears off.

While there I asked one of the sales associates how long the carpets last.  He had been with the business for 11 years, and he says he has not had one customer come back to him asking for a replacement yet.  The carpet is guaranteed to last, but not only that, guaranteed to protect from those stains.

Better Show, Jd Roberto, #shop, LobsterFEST

Also present during the day was JD Roberto from the Better Show, a well known known TV Show on the Hallmark Channel.  He was there testing out the SmartStrand Carpet, enjoying the LobsterFest and handing out samples of food by Noramae Munster from Port O’ Call Restaurant.  When we were there they were handing out samples of Lobster Cioppino.  I could have gone back for seconds it was that good.

If you are ever in San Pedro, I definitely recommend stopping in the Port O’ Call Waterfront Restaurant.  You will receive an amazing view as you dine on your meal.

And then my other half and I continued on to enjoy the festival.  We got our lobster, and enjoyed our meal.  We ran across pirates with a rat, tested out new vehicles by Ford, and even played a few games before making our trek back home.  And of course, with any festival, especially one that’s a tradition, we did our part in dressing up for the occasion.
