Where's your fav 'secret spot' to dine and drink in SD?
I love the library room at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe..quiet, secluded and the odds of someone you know finding you there is minimal...
Wish the Dive Bar Gods would make more dive bars with low lighting, burgundy naugahyde booths, strong cocktails with surly bartenders..throw in some potato skins with sour cream heaping off those bad boys that medics have to be on notice.
My Dive Bar fav's are..Bully's, Nunu's, Waterfront, Longhorn's, Jamacha Junction, Albies Beef Inn, Captain Quarters,
Star Bar, Pacific Shores..
No doubt you're aware of Bully's - sounds like it would fit the bill on your dive bar request. Nunus, The Red Fox and Albie's Beef Inn also offer something similar. I don't really have a "secret spot" these days. We seem to be haunting Starlite and Farmhouse Cafe more often than not lately.
Dive bars, love 'em. Add the Alibi, The Kensington Club, Pal Joey's (here's your red booths), and for real dive, Joe and Andy's Hole in the Wall in La Mesa.
