Waypoint Public Del Sur

I’ve seen Waypoint Public at various events through out the years. They offered samples but none of which I can currently remember. Cdj visited their North Park location some weeks ago after watching fights at a nearby bar and swore he had one of his best dinners at Waypoint Public (then again, he’d probably give… Read More Waypoint Public Del Sur

Facing East (Eight Guys Xiao Long Bao + happy hour) – San Diego, CA

I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to visit Facing East but none of my friends have been wanting to try out this new restaurant. I was in this plaza the other day and decided it was time for me to venture inside the restaurant. I was lucky as they offered happy hour that weekday from… Read More Facing East (Eight Guys Xiao Long Bao + happy hour) – San Diego, CA

Berkeley Pizza (Happy Hour) – North Park

We were in North Park on a weekend trying to look for a place to watch the Dallas Cowboys lose. Almost every sports bar was packed to the brim. We walked past Berkeley Pizza which was completely empty but they had 2-3 tvs playing the game. Friend didn’t really want to try Berkeley Pizza but… Read More Berkeley Pizza (Happy Hour) – North Park

The Craftsman New American Tavern

We visited The Craftsman New American Tavern some weeks ago. We were looking for a place to have a late brunch on a Sunday afternoon. The weather was perfect and the drive up the Pacific Coast Highway couldn’t have been prettier. The Craftsman New American Tavern is located in Encinitas and had a happy hour… Read More The Craftsman New American Tavern

Crust Pizzeria – Torrey Hills, CA

I don’t visit this part of town often but recently discovered Crust Pizzeria in a Torrey Hills strip mall. They make their pizza dough and pizza sauces fresh daily. They also import their 100% fresh mozzarella from Wisconsin. The restaurant also offers salads, sandwiches, and a few entrees. There’s also wine as well as draft… Read More Crust Pizzeria – Torrey Hills, CA

Elbow Room (Weekend Happy Hour) – San Diego, CA

Football has been harder to watch this season because, well, the Chargers suck. More so that they can’t keep a lead and blow the 4th quarter. It’s a miracle they’ve won the last two games but I probably jinxed it right there by typing that. It’s tough finding a restaurant/bar that offers some sort of… Read More Elbow Room (Weekend Happy Hour) – San Diego, CA

Tidewater Tavern – Solana Beach, CA

How have I never been to Tidewater Tavern in Solana Beach. And how did Cdj find this place before me. The conundrums I face in my daily life. Cdj usually texts me during Sunday service to 1) pay attention to service; 2) stop checking football stats on nfl.com; 3) where are we eating after I’m… Read More Tidewater Tavern – Solana Beach, CA

Grub Burger Bar – Carmel Mountain, CA

I think a generation of people were heart broken when Oscars left Carmel Mountain. The restaurant was part of the community and many of us had grown up eating their breadsticks, pastas, chicken, etc. We saw signage for Grub Burger Bar but didn’t really give it a second thought. I’m kinda an In N Out… Read More Grub Burger Bar – Carmel Mountain, CA

Cusp Dining & Drinks (Happy Hour) – La Jolla, CA

I was meeting a friend and she suggested trying Cusp Dining & Drinks in La Jolla. I visited Cusp years ago and thought the view was fine but the food was meh. They offer happy hour Mon-Sun from 4pm-7pm. The restaurant is located on the 11th floor of Hotel La Jolla. There’s now only a… Read More Cusp Dining & Drinks (Happy Hour) – La Jolla, CA

R&B Crawfish Lounge

We often talk about the best restaurants to take a first date. I might have just found the place to take her (or him) if you 1) either like her/him alot or 2) want to see her/him patience threshold. More to come on that later. We noticed R&B Crawfish Lounge being built for some time… Read More R&B Crawfish Lounge
