So far in PB I have discovered.... Day drinking is where its at - DB's and Fist Pumpers come out at night and you can guarantee anywhere you are by 2am there will be a fight. Thrift Trader is AWESOME!! Millers Field has a cool view, good food and fun people -upstairs. The Lobster Taquito's at PB Cantina are Bomb Tuesday nights at the Turquoise Cafe there is a painting class thats pretty rad. The Farmers Market SUCKS but, a super cute boy makes his own Peanut Butter and sells it there... Fred's Mexican is a stupid copycat version of the Real Fred's in HB The Silverfox is an awesome dive with stiff drinks and a killer bacon-hotdog stand Robertos is the shizzz and Rocky's makes a mean burger And La Haina is Dope on a Sunny weekend day

Pacific Beach, how do I love you? Let me count the ways:

  1. Your beauteous beaches and sun kissed sand
  2. The way Mr. Frostie's is devoured before it melts in my hand
  3. Drunk frat boys who wander into the wrong bars
  4. Blissful retirees, sporting beach cruisers instead of cars
  5. Oscar's on Turquoise St., now open in Ocean Beach
  6. Bouncers who kick my friends out of bars, even when they were being a peach

So, my fair city, before I bid this comment adieu. Just know that you are the greatest place in San Diego, and I truly love you!

It's waaay worse than you described. Sorry.

92109 is the best zip code in San Diego County - everything you want to do is right there. Great beaches and restaurants and neighborhoods.

T- shirts look great. Will wear mine proudly.

Hey there, any one know any bars with good indie music in PB?


Keekdasneak July 2, 2013 @ 12:31 a.m.

Dave's Tavern is where it's at. And the Silver Fox as my number one PB gem. Who can beat cheetah print carpets and cheap beers?


jimmyk61 July 27, 2013 @ 8:24 a.m.

Why is the Chevron on Garnet soooo expensive? Everytime I drive by, it's like the most expensive gas station ever. La Jolla even way cheaper

PB has become a wasteland of PWT and young tattooed douchebags. I'm sick of it. Where I live on Reed at Kendall, there are no fewer than three houses/rear apartments (one with a small pool) full of young, profane, alcoholic losers who live their lives out loud and every other phrase is "F*%k Dude" yelled at both genders. So, when did guys start calling girls dude? Driving down the alleys in golf carts to shuttle those who have passed out back to their shared three-bedroom on Oliver or Thomas. I don't get it. The behavior is loud, the language coarse and none of the young people, (young meaning well into their 40's now), have a pot to piss in . . . And the tattoos. Did you really think that people are going to find you attractive or interesting because you have a shitload of meaningless ink? And your pitbull . . .well let's just say that if you have a pitbull you are an a&^shole. The women are worse than the men, often, except the men still don't have thier driver's licenses or their own apartments. How old are you gonna be before you get your own one-bedroom? Geez! Tons of seemingly attractive young women in their 20's driving around in their Plymouth Neons with their parolee -looking boyfriend riding shotgun. Awesome! I can't wait for the "economic downturn" to be over and for interest rates and inflation to go sky high. Maybe then, PB can revert back to a higher rent neighborhood with people who respect their neighbors. Live your life------ but do it quietly and without your music. Ok, now I feel better.

We all have choices. If it's so bad...move! And as far as Pit Bulls's very clear that you are ignorant concerning the breed. For that matter you have conveniently stereotyped several groups to match your warped sense of reality!!!!!


DJMuttley Sept. 25, 2013 @ 1:05 p.m.

I love working & living in Pacific Beach, it's a very laid back atmosphere. There's quite a few homeless & DB's but you get that anywhere you go. PB fo life!

The people who are "outraged" by the SDPD shooting of a pitbull in PB last Sunday need a reality check. The majority of citizens who are contributors to the community and have families or who work and try to live respectfully realize that no pit bull is safe. Nobody really trusts pit bulls. And when you walk around the neighborhood with your dog, people make a judgement about you and your personality: impulsive, disrespectful, troubled, paranoid, low-end, aggressive, and undesirable.

When you google "San Diego pit bull attacks" or "police pit bulls" or "San Diego pit bull problems" you see how dangerous the breed is to the community. A common refrain by the tattooed, twenty-something owner? "My dog is the sweetest, most loving animal. He would never harm anyone". Right.

People who insist on owning a pit bull should be removed from the community. Often, the people who get theses dogs have other issues that make them anti-social: excessive tattoos, bipolar disorder, gang membership, loud, disrespectful lifestyles, or drug/alcohol issues.

So, my post is to let the morons (who are blindly supporting the "pit bull lifestyle") know that the overwhelming majority of San DIego citizens do not want you in the community.

I support the police who were investigating a violent crime in progress. The naiive young man who allowed his pit to run free from the apartment should be ashamed of himself. It looks as if he contributed to his pet's demise. And I love dogs.
