    An amazing spot, wide open gallery loft space with live performing painter and djs. Awesome idea! Strongly recommend you to stop by at least once if you are a visitor like me.

    Saturday 90s to current hip hop. Easy to get in - no dress code or cover, line moves fast (even during a match.com event whether u knew about it or not). Plenty of seats. Acoustics are balls though.

    This is some of the best pizza in San Diego. Stick with the basics. White 5 cheese or a pepperoni with red sauce. You can't go wrong!

    Killer margarita pizza! Reserve the inner lounge area for your private party, as this pizza joint turns into a club on weekend nights.

    The music they play here is a teriffic mix of indie and mainstream altrock. Come here on a weeknight for a chill night of drinking. Though sometimes they do host special events that pack the place.

    Get @barbasicpizza's white pie. It's got mashed potatoes and bacon. If that doesn't sound good to you then I'm sorry you're just dumb.

    Challenge the bartenders to a margarita stand-off. Cheryl versus Mike. Tell one that the other's is better, and have him/her try to "out-do" the other one. And have a great night.
