Read on how one particular new establishment achieved just that in a brief period of time.

A Historic Gaslamp Experience & The 39 Steps

A Historic Gaslamp Experience & The 39 Steps

It seems like the "polar vortex" is still wreaking havoc in San Diego! The San Diegans are in shock that their winter weather is being ruined by the heat. We're now forced to make sandmen instead of snowmen. Boo. Hoo. Feeling inspired and in a sunny disposition, the Experience San Diego team has decided to explore the Gaslamp Quarter during the day, making it into a mini-San Diego "staycation". We will be staying at the Horton Grand Hotel while exploring the history of the Gaslamp Quarter at the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum and The Gaslamp Museum at the William Heath Davis House, and enjoying the evening with laughter at the Horton Grand Theatre, which is showing The 39 Steps

The Jacobs Music Center - Ballroom With a Twist -  Downtown

The San Diego community never ceases its artistic combustion of music and cultural arts! It was a balmy 75-degree day this San Diego winter(sarcasm), and a group of friends wanted to start off their long-weekend with artistic mental stimulation. It's not a typical weekend where we usually kick it off with after-work libation, but what happens to be in town at the Jacobs Music Center is a show called, BALLROOM WITH A TWIST. What is BALLROOM WITH A TWIST? Well, I could tell you now, but then you wouldn't read the rest of my post, so you'll just have to follow along.

LEILANI'S CAFE - Pacific Beach

We’ve managed to frantically packed two zipper-popping backpacks full of beach supplies, changed into board shorts all while locking up the house in, literally, one fluid motion; talent. Now, we’re heading to Spam and a plate lunch spot that we’ve heard great things about, but haven’t tried yet; Leilani’s Cafe.

Noble Experiment - Gaslamp Quarter, Downtown

Noble Experiment - Gaslamp Quarter, Downtown

A reference to an infamous time in American history--Prohibition, is where The Noble Experiment got its name. So what and where is this hidden in San Diego downtown? It's actually in a 'Neighborhood' located in G Street and 8th Avenue. First of all, it's not your typical bar, you will not be able to order a drink made with vodka here. Secondly, there's no dancing inside. If you're feeling like Al Capone, or just want to be cool, then this is a good place for an artisan drink, that will bring you back in time.

At first we headed to Mission Beach, but because it's the summer, the parking lot was like watching the movie, Hunger Games . Tourists from around the world and locals flock to the beach, especially when the weather is so nice. After some time looking for parking, we decided to head off to South Mission Beach instead.
