Birthday Choices are down to...

So i posted a post a couple days ago cause my 21st birthday is on the 26th of this month and i wanted to know some places to go for dinner with my family then places to go later in the evening with friends for drinks. old link below

For dinner because of the specifications i needed i have it down to either simple places like applebees or cheesecake factory. But i would love some ideas for places to go with friends for drinks later. Anywhere in san diego is fine really just not downtown. Not fancy i mean any ideas welcome. thanks, James

  1. If you're going to Applebee's or Cheesecake Factory, may as well go somewhere easy and fun for a group for drinks, like Dave and Busters. You can gets cocktails and beers there, and have fun with your friends playing all the games.

    You're turning 21, so save the higher-end nightlife and expensive cocktails and hip bars for later when you can sit down and really take the time to enjoy them. You've got plenty of time ahead of you to get into the fancy stuff.

    (By the way, you probably should've just added this topic to your other thread. No need for two on the same subject.)

      Small Bar on Park Blvd, near Adams Avenue is fun, great drinks, and a good Juke Box. They also have great food, for that late night snack that you will be desiring. El Zarape is also up the street for Rolled Tacos.

      1. Seriously, go to Starlite Lounge or the Turf Supper Club. Avoid the chains.
