It had been quite some time that I had been south of the grapevine. So when I heard we were going down for my husband’s work conference I was a little excited. Not knowing San Diego very well, I had no idea what to expect. All I knew is that my father raved about the surf, street tacos and good music.
San Diego, California City Guide
Staying in Mission Bay at the Paradise Point Resort was a great place to be in order to go explore. The first night was spent at the heart of Little Italy at this retro new ramen shop called Underbelly. It was exactly what you would expect for a hipster eatery. Cement walls, craft beers, and open windows for tables. The food was excellent and worth the long wait.
During the day, there was not much free time to go explore as both of our schedules were full with work so night time was our opening. The second night we headed to Rooftop 600 at the Andaz Hotel for cocktail party. Awesome views and great food made for a good time. I enjoyed the space so much I ended up coming back the next day to work from one of their daybeds by the pool. That day I headed to Searsucker in the Gaslamp district for a fresh salad and a break from hotel food.
Being the foodies we are, finding a restaurant that had inspired fare and craft cocktails was not easy to find here in San Diego. After much research I found a place in La Jolla called WhisknLadle which seemed to fit our personality. The food was good, the service outstanding and had a fun beach vibe.
The rest of the week was filled with conferences, meetings, hotel sites, and a lot of emails. As I get to come home for two days before my next adventure, this week was a great time to focus on work, binge watch House of Cards and get as much of a tan as possible.
