Swanky Eats My sister and her husband have lived in San Diego for about 20 years. Anytime I would visit (which was frequently), it always included a stop at Starlite. This stylish eatery has a perfectly lit atmosphere, great music and refreshing, creative cocktails. My go-to is tequila, and I will order any of their drinks with tequila. Order takeout or enjoy on the patio! Get Inked Photo by Lucas Lenzi on Unsplash Tattoo artists, like so many Americans, have really struggled with the impacts of COVID-19. Now that tattoo shops are able to open up, I’m anxious to get back in the chair. I’ve read a lot about Full Circle Tattoo and love seeing their new work posted on Instagram. My main artist is in Nashville, but I like to support locally owned businesses also! Let’s Taco ‘Bout It I love to bring out-of-towners to ¡SALUD! Barrio Logan—a hip, casual Mexican eatery. You can get two of my favorite things there: breakfast and tacos! I come from Latino heritage, and I love the atmosphere, tattoo-inspired artwork and also the proximity to Chicano Park, which is beneath the San Diego-Coronado Bridge.
