Morley Field

Mondays are typically my days off and I enjoy getting a nice round of disk golf in. I usually play at Morley Field in Balboa Park early in the morning before it gets too busy.

Tribute is my favorite place to pick up a pie in SD. The Dirty Dancin’ is my favorite with crushed tomatoes, mozzarella, red onion, jalapeno, pineapple, bacon lardons and harissa ranch—say no more.

OB Farmers MarketMy favorite thing to do on Wednesday evenings is the OB Farmers Market. It’s a fun market to walk around and pick up some seasonal produce and cook a meal at home.

Thursdays are a good day to go to Convoy Street before the busy weekend. If you have never been, there is some of the best variety of Asian food in town. My favorite place to go is Yakyudori for some yakitori and a nice bottle of sake.

Hundred Proof

I don’t typically get out on Friday nights, but when I do I like to head over to Hundred Proof for a cocktail from one of my favorite bartenders in town—Stephen. You have to try the cinnamon toast crunch milk punch. So good.


Provisional Kitchen

Saturdays are the best days for brunch and I can’t think of a better place than Provisional Kitchen. You will typically find me serving up some of our unique and delicious breakfast items such as our shakshouka and avocado toast.

Cowles Mountain

If I still find some energy left on Sunday, I like to go for a hike. Cowles Mountain is a tough hike but the view at the top makes it all worth it.
