    Hello all,

    I'll be leaving tomorrow for 4 days in San Diego with my girl-friend. We're both on vacation and want to check out some good ethnic restaurants/nightclubs. We're also interested in cultural activities(ie museums, etc.) What do you recommend. You need not include the Zoo, animal park, and the beach. We already know we want to do that. I'm more interested in good Asian, Middle-Eastern(&North African), Caribbean, Mexican, and European restaurants to explore. Also, what good clubs to check out for jazz, blues, and even rock.Thanks in advance.

    Hahaha! Yes, DigMe, even rock. God, I hope I didn't sound totally snobbish or the like. I guess I just want to open it up and see what people have to offer. I am very excited for my trip. Can you tell? :hyper:

    Eat lots of fish tacos!
     
  5. the gas lamp area, down town..5th street.. lots of good trendy expensive places to eat there. don't forget to go to TJ :p
     
  6. hey now we're talkin my territory.. GO TO PACIFIC BEACH!!! you will not find a better beach in this town, and the water is about 70 degrees right now. it's freakin awesome. you won't find any jazz or blues in this area, but there is a cool restaurant called Chateau Orleans which has some jazz stuff. if you are into Veggie stuff there is a cool place called Galoka in Bird Rock which is just 3-4 minutes north of Pacific Beach. They do some jazz and have some other cool nites.. If you dig sushi, hit Haiku on Garnet. they just added a Teppan (benihana-style) side to the restaurant so you get to watch all the tricks the chefs do.. pretty neat stuff...

    If you hit Plum Crazy for happy hour odds are you'll find me and some of my buds chillin after work... cheap drinks and cool bartenders..

    Hop over to Tijuana for a few hours.
     
  8. Dizzy's is the most serious jazz club in SD. It's near the new ballpark. People there will tell you where else to go.

    Any taco stand in San Diego will be approximately the best Mexican food you have ever had. Do not be scared.
