Twice annually, restaraunts all over San Diego open their doors (and menus) to San Diego Restaurant Week and folks, it's here again. But, this time around they've added a little something different to the line-up: Lunch! That's right, lunch! I love it. Of the 180 restaurants participating this year a chunk of them have created a prix-fixe, two course menu for lunch time visitors. These menus range in price from $10, $15, or $20 depending on the restaurant. I've perused some of the lunch offerings of some of our very own Downtown San Diego eateries and let me say, they (0 comments)
The plan of having The Chargers in the East Village/Ballpark District in Downtown San Diego has moved closer to an agreement but the possible project might not happen until the spring of 2013. The Chargers have decided not to break its lease with the City of San Diego this year as it would cost them about $24 million. For each year that passes all the way up to 2020, the Chargers would be able to relocate by paying a fee to the city that decreases with about $2 to $3 million a year. There have been discussions about if The (1 comments)

Jerry Seinfeld at the Civic - 01/24/12 10:19 PM
Downtown San Diego's Civic Center, located in the Core District, has received a lot of press over the years with public opinion of whether or not money should (or even can) be allocated to it's redevelopment. Regardless of this ongoing debate, the Civic continues to offer residents of Downtown San Diego and beyond some great entertainment. This Saturday, January 7th, Jerry Seinfeld will be in town with a live stand up comedy show at the Civic. How fun would that be to hear his take on life these days?!

The San Diego Bay right outside Downtown San Diego is usually a very peaceful place with not too many activities going on. Of course you have the Hornblower Cruises, private sail and motor boats, the cruise lines and other vessels but it’s still a pretty quiet place to be. New big plans are up for discussion on what could be a possibility to happen during 2012 and 2013. Lewis Siris, a New York based event planner, has a plan where the bay would be like a Las Vegas or Disney shaped place with sculptures in the shape of sea monsters (0 comments)
