Rest assured, no cars are dismantled at this Mission Beach teriyaki spot.

Compared to the bar- and nightclub-saturated stretches at both ends of Mission Boulevard, the northern sections of Mission Beach are heavily residential, with apartment patios running right up to the sidewalks along the busy thoroughfare. There’s some room for restaus, ...

Ice cream sandwiches...you're doing it right!

Some concepts are so foolishly simple they make me facepalm in disbelief at my own lack of inspiration. The Baked Bear in Pacific Beach is like that. The idea is ridiculously concise: custom-built ice cream sandwiches made with fresh cookies, ...

Lake Jennings opens for night-fishing

Cars lined up for the first weekend of night-fishing at Lake Jennings on May 17. The lake — actually a water-supply reservoir — is open until midnight every Friday and Saturday night until Labor Day. ...

Returning to the Snooty Asian

The Snooty Asian (3925 Fourth Avenue) showed a lot of promise during its soft opening period. Making it work in the cut-throat restaurant quarter of Hillcrest is no easy task, and Snooty has yet to ...

This is the kind of really good, in depth story about Tijuana that I used to enjoy in the Reader a long time ago. I appreciate it. And, as an aging male San Diegan myself, it's reassuring to know this place is available, if the need ever arises. No need to walk off into the forest, or desert, or finish it with a handgun.

If someone is "free", that must include the freedom to ingest substances that aren't good for them. There is no moral support for the "War on Drugs"... the intention was to go after the effects of drug use, and has failed badly.

Legalize it. Tax it. Bring it out into the light. If someone wants to blaze away 24/7, that's their business. If they then want to do something stupid or criminal, there are laws for that. get stoned and drive? Already illegal. Commit burglaries to buy dope? Already illegal. Want to give pot to a kid? Illegal.

Stop the hand-wringing. Time for the nattering ninnies to shut up. Don't want to use pot? Don't. But you don't have a right for nobody else to use it because you disapprove.

Space-age gunslinger rocks SDSU

I'll just say that this is my new favorite bar. I walk down the street weekly to go try a new cocktail and some kind of food. I've never had anything but an amazing experience and haven't noticed any lack of seasoning. Keep doing what you do, guys.

AleSmith three-peats the San Diego International

Short on seats, big on beer

The city of Encinitas hasn’t been 100-percent welcoming to local breweries eyeing its downtown retail district along the Coast Highway. The local planning committee is hesitant to permit any brewery presence, and even when it ...

Response to post #3: I have been badmouthing (your word) MLMs for more than two decades. I have never worked in the industry and never will. Nor have I ever seen a bar of Amway soap in someone's home. Best,, Don Bauder

Thank you, Ian, for this important story. Beautifully written and reasoned, well-researched. Thank you, READER. Thank you, Dr. Uslander. Thank you, Andrews family for loving BA enough to honor his wishes. And thank you forever, dear Bill.

"Be stoked for me, that I went out with a sense of quietness and purposefulness that I felt reflected the way I liked to surf — paddling out in the dark, first man in the water, and alone with the waves." — Bill Andrews
