Ever wonder what Jason Mraz's favorite yoga school is? Jivamukti Yoga School in New York City.

His pick for weekend breakfasts and Yerba Mate lattes? That'd be Jitter’s Coffee Shop, right here in San Diego.

What about best place in Los Angeles to buy records? Why, Amoeba Music, of course. So sayeth Mraz, anyway, now that he's become an advisor for Trippy, a new social travel website and app that went "live" on March 8.

"As one of Trippy’s advisors, Jason will share his favorite travel destinations and tips on Trippy’s new visual inspiration boards," says the Trippy press release. "It’s a great way to inspire travelers and share awesome advice from someone people already trust and turn to."

Image "Whether you’re planning a vacation, or just dreaming about a getaway, Jason will provide inspiration for any type of savvy traveler." If said inspiration sounds like something you seek, check out Mraz's boards at http://www.trippy.com/friends/4e98a759388fbfdcca79f0b1/beenhere .

Others sharing their own travel-related inspirations and advice include Rachel Zoe, Anthony Bourdain, Kevin Rose, Tim Ferriss, Randi Zuckerberg, Andrew Zimmern, Gary Vaynerchuk, Chase Jarvis, Soleil Moon Frye, Soraya Darabi, Johnny Jet, Veronica Belmont, Kim Mance, Brett Snyder, Gary Arndt, and Peter Shankman.

There's also Boo, apparently aka "the World’s Cutest Dog," who presumably has the pooper scoop on all the best hydrant and butt sniffing.

Trippy trippers can also see an early preview of the site’s next evolution, referred to internally as Project Delightful. This sneak peak provides a look at Trippy’s visual-browsing experience, which is focused on the serendipitous discovery of travel ideas through photos. Browsers can view pages of travel photos, click on the places they want to go and have been to, and add their own travel ideas to the visual inspiration boards.

Custom boards can even be made for any category, from Feeling Beachy and Weekend Getaways, to Just Eat It and Get Cultured.

“With visual browsing, we’re really taking people all the way from dreaming to doing now, and we are so honored to have such an esteemed group of advisors leading the way to inspire great travel,” says J.R. Johnson, founder and CEO of Trippy.com.

“As a new site, we’re able to be fast and focused as we take in how people respond to Trippy. It’s in that spirit of innovation that we’re giving an open look to the public of where we’re headed with Project Delightful.”

Each travel photo is geo-tagged, which helps people remember the locations of all the places they’re inspired to visit and also allows them to see their collection of photo ideas plotted on a map. "When travelers are ready to turn their ideas into a real trip, Trippy taps into their social network to show friends who know about the places they’re interested in. This makes it easy to get personally-relevant ideas, creating a full-circle travel-planning experience."

Jason Mraz's 2011 world tour with percussionist Noel Toca Rivera hit North America, Europe, Africa, the Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, New Zealand, and Australia, celebrating the tenth anniversary of their Live At Java Joe’s album. His two sold-out shows November 25 at Carnegie Hall included a third performance, a kids matinee, with support from Nick Jr. idols the Fresh Beat Band. Mraz performed his own material alongside favorite songs from his childhood, before returning home to play the Spreckels Theatre on November 28 and 29.

This video for his new single “I Won’t Give Up” debuted online February 16, showing off his new hairy/grunge look.

Mraz’s upcoming full-length Love Is a Four Letter Word (due April 17) will include the single “The Freedom Song,” now exclusively available to preview at iTunes. The official lyric video below was directed by Elliot Sellers:

Mr. Sanford...I understand you don't live in California. If you were a local you would know there is no Jitters in San Diego. There is one in Oceanside.

March 18, 2012

Oceanside is the third largest city in San Diego county. IE it, AND Jitters, is in San Diego. Even a bi-coastal part-time San Diegan like me knows that - the Reader's list of north county San Diego areas that we cover can be found at:

http://www.sandiegoreader.com/news/regions/north-county-coastal/

I've lived in San Diego since 1978, though family issues have required me to maintain a part-time residence elsewhere since around 2004.
