Oktoberwest

Free-flowing beer. The clinking of steins and caroling of “Ein Prosit der Gemütlichkeit.” The scent of schweinebraten, würstl, käsespätzle, and brazen wafting through the tents. Seas of people clad in dirndl and lederhosen. Oktoberfest in ...

What’s that bloomin’ at Westerly Public House?

I’m not sure what spurred an interest when I learned that an Australia-styled gastropub had opened in Shelter Island. Probably, I’d be just as keen for the arrival of a gastropub claiming any national character. ...

Long Story, an Irish Pub with quirks

Part of the allure of the Irish pub is that they’re pretty much the same all over the world. Go to pubs in Paris, Melbourne, Hong Kong, and you’ll find the experience replicated over and ...

Weapon Ramen + Chirashi (and okonomiyaki)

Masks on, because I’m pretty sure this is what the CDC was talking about when it said vaccinated people could uncover in public spaces, except in crowded settings. It’s Saturday afternoon, and Liberty Station is ...

Traffic circles safer, but maybe not for bikes

Word on the streets is there's an uptick in confusion between cyclists and motorists at San Diego circular intersections. The disorder is partly due to the newly developed roundabouts and traffic circles throughout the county, ...

A romantic deal makes Cesarina impossible to ignore

I’d seen enough photos to know Cesarina offers one heck of a romantic dining destination. A lot of good that does anybody now, though. Or so I thought. Truth is, in the past couple years, ...

Last gasp for Famosa Slough

A favorite splash of open space in Point Loma is still being fought over. Every step towards creating affordable rental housing on the five-acre lot on the southeast corner of Nimitz and Famosa Boulevards has ...

Going beyond banh mi at Banh Mi Hoi An

Used to be, whenever I found myself hungry for lunch in the Sports Arena/Loma Portal area, I’d wind up enduring the lines of either In-N-Out Burger or Phil’s BBQ. That changed for the better a ...

So much for San Diego streamlined granny flats

San Diego's plans to boost affordable housing include an abundance of granny flats. To that end the city has been overhauling the rules, most recently by dropping all parking requirements for granny flats and allowing ...

Sweet meets heat at Fluster Cluck Hot Chicken

I should be tired of writing about Nashville hot chicken by now, considering some gazillion new hot chicken joints have opened in the past year. So many, the San Diego Chicken guy might want to ...

Coastal sage, Fall migrant birds, zodiacal light

San Diego restaurants try everything to get by

The restaurant business, as Bette Davis once said about growing old, ain’t no place for sissies. The hours are long; the profit margins, razor-thin. Customers are notoriously fickle, and a few bad Yelp reviews can ...

Point Loma: from Madame Tingley to modern-day cavemen

“Man, please don’t call the news” Three young men were rousted from a den along Sunset Cliffs Boulevard Tuesday morning after pictures of the elaborate cave surfaced on social media earlier in the week. Multiple ...

These essential businesses still bake cookies

Since the call went out for all but essential businesses to close during the coronavirus crisis, exactly what constitutes an “essential business” has been a point of public debate. “Are restaurants?” some wonder; “Are bakeries?” ...

The Latin Chef still cooks in Liberty Station
