For Refined Tastes

Posted by Dave Fratello on Friday, November 2nd, 2007 at 5:52am.

Saturday morning (8:30-noon) is your chance to tour the Chevron refinery in El Segundo that so dominates our town's northern end.

The tours are offered once a year and staffed by refinery employees. The ride is an air-conditioned bus, the chatter is that of proud nerds and the landscape is, well, paved and industrial. Lots of glossy handouts, too.

Great for kids, nerds or neighbors who wonder what's on the other side of the fence.

The hydrocarbon economy ain't MBC's favorite thing, but we must admit the refinery is impressive – they'll pitch all the new green stuff they're doing, too.

You must register in advance. Best to call ASAP on Friday.
